From 16th until 18th of December everything is about Splitboarding at the LIVINGROOM HOCHKÖNIG. Shortly before christmas the new splitboard equipment is ready for you. This time with a multimedia presentation "Splitboard-Freeriding from Kyrgyztan to Tadzhikistan".
One question we were often asked is, how do you begin with splitboard touring? You got snowshoes or your first splitboard and safety equipment ready. You already know what avalanches are and attended some snow safety training. Going down the mountain is no problem for you and you already have some dream lines in your mind you want to ride.
Suppose you have one or two weeks of vacation and want to go on a splitboarding and freeride trip. Your friends can not make it so you are forced with two options:
In February 2016 the conditions are suitable for a Splitboard winter ascent of the impressive Hochvogel. In summer it's a popular destination, however in winter summited only rarely. Impressions of a lonesome tour in the Allgäu Alps:

Anyone who goes travelling has stories to tell. Our Splitboard friend Sost was in Japan and has checked what's up with the legendary Samurai Powder. More about hugging birches and what Onsens are, you'll read here in his Hokkaido Pow Travel report.
As manifold as the Romanian mountains are, are the impressions that reach us from there. Lonely adventures of hardship and easy going sessions, the film "Follow your path" of our Polish splitboard friends captures these moods.
LOOKING FOR THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT?
SPLITBOARDS season 2016/17
SPLITBOARD BOOTS and BINDINGS
CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES TESTED
The Vaude Boe Bib Pants are freeride oriented mountaineering pants instead of pure touring pants. Nevertheless I had the chance to test it a complete hard season while touring and I want to inform you about my experience with those pants.
Regarding the snow conditions of this season our mountaineering skills got leveled up, so I havn`t been out with my beloved Vaude ABS backpack but with the Vaude Simony 40+8.
We have tested the new Penguin Pinneco Insulation Jacket. The material 100% recyled Polyester, is super soft and really smooth tp wear. The aguility and flexibility required in mountainsports is absolutely given and the shape is cool.
The Vaude Tacul Jacket is perfect for ambitioned Mountaineers who like to wear, sensfull and simple designed Equipment. The matter of sustainability is important for Vaude what I like a lot. We enjoy nature and so we should also protect it as far as we can.
