Splitboard season is over in the northern hemisphere. If you couldn't catch enough snow or are not into surfing, usual locations for splitboarding on the southern hemisphere would be Chile or New Zealand. Here we present three more remote locations for real splitboard explorers.
Yellowstone, located northeast of the Tetons and Jackson Hole, is one of the last remaining intact ecosystem in the northern temperates. Wolves, foxes, free-ranging herds of bison and elk live there. During winter season the park remains inaccessible, in early May however, the National Park Service plow the roads and you can access some mountains near the roads much more easily.
Splitboarding in the Southern Alps. Mike Wigley reports about Club Fields, nutcrackers, why New Zealand has the best hut system of the world and where you could spend the rest of your life riding. Here you learn how to escape from the summer heat of the Northern Hemisphere.
