This year our annual First Impression Splitboard Test 21-22 was different than expected. Due to Corona we were not able to test the boards at the Shops First Try. So another solution had to be found. Flexibility is needed - what can we do? We have the splitboards sent to us and try to get a work permit in Austria. No sooner said than done.
For several winters now, I've been toying with the idea of getting myself a splitboard - in the hope that I'd still be able to get my slice of the untracked powder cake days after the last snowfall, or at least escape the crowds of tourists increasingly flooding the ski resorts. Time and again I've furtively glanced over to the "other side" - that of those who call a splitboard their own and use it to conquer untouched terrain in seemingly limitless freedom, climbing impressive peaks, followed, of course, by even more impressive descents with face shots guaranteed. Why I have not done it for so long?
