Magic Mountain was where I got my first taste of “earning my turns”. It wasn’t a splitboard mission for me- yet…but it is what got me hooked on the idea.
Magic Mountain Splitboard and Hike
New Year’s weekend we decided to check out Magic Mountain in Vermont. We heard from a customer that it had great terrain and low crowds. Just how low we never would’ve guessed! Turns out the lifts were down due to mechanical difficulties.
They also are one of few ski areas that allow splitboarders and hikers to have at it! So for two days we had more fun than any other days this year. Blasting though powder stashes with no one around. Meeting other splitboarders and skinners on the way up. And talking with the locals who are some of the friendliest and coolest people on the planet. We can’t wait to get back there!
Here’s an edit of one of our tours up the mountain. Sorry for the poor picture quality- apparently this POV doesn’t like overcast skies.
A few weeks later with the splitboard setup. Now the challenge is to learn how to use it…
St. Paddy Day Split on Mount Cardigan
With Spring on our heels and the splitboards barking at us from the office room, we knew we had to set to it and get some peaks toured up. Cardigan was a quick and easy lap and we had beautiful weather. The snow pack was goddamn treacherous- land mines everywhere. But it was pure fun and uber-stoke as everyday on a spitboard always is.
