Took advantage of daylight savings on Sunday and toured up to Camp Muir on Mt. Rainier. We decided to leave a car at the bridge and descended 6000ft+ down through the Nisqually Chutes for some spring slush slashing fun. My Arbor Iguchi Pro 162 rode like a dream compared to my K2 panoramic the last time I was up here 2 winters ago.

I went on my first tour a couple weekends ago. My biggest OH SHIT moment came at the very beginning skiing down a little ways from the parking lot off the highway (maybe 100-150 feet vert) and realizing I have NO CLUE how to ski. I was with a group of exclusively skiers so they weren't much help.

Do folks telemark that shit or use heel lockers? I'm on Burton Hitchhikers so basically Sparks.

My solution to split skiing downhill sections so far seems to be to fall over a lot. And by fall over a lot, I mean: FALL OVER. A LOT.

hahaha yep the ski-down portions are sketchy as hell.

I do ok actually. Well.... meaning I don't fall. But the fear of snapping my knees in non-releasing bindings is always there on those ski sections.

 

My secret's in the Speed Tuck 😀 😀 😀

Yea this was the biggest thing, as well as the unattached heel. I know how to ski a tiny bit, enough to pizza down a mellow slope. But my heel suddenly lifting while 'skiing' down was really tripping me out.

Unfortunately I'm out until 5/20. I'm hoping Sierra snowpack can hold out a few more weeks for some fun corn riding by then.

The formations there are so cool.  It would be like shooting a coolie, but with a sheer drop on your left instead of a rock wall.

posted in the dealz thread, but thought i should post here too:

if anybody's looking for a good deal on a pair of 2018 Burton Hitchhikers in a Large, they started at $200 + $12 for shipping. if you miss out on that one, there's a second pair of Larges here. they're this years' tesla T1 model.

i'm looking for a splitboard; 152-157, prefer camber but early rise is cool too, also prefer taper. there was a killer deal on an endeavor patrol on geartrade for less than $300 being sold by backcountry. i asked them a question about the board but they never responded. i finally said fuck it and was gonna buy it anyway but it sold. #$%@&

anyways, boards that have my eye so far are the endeavor patrol 156, prior khyber 156, or the flight attendant 154, but i'm not really picky. if anyone is, or knows someone, selling, or knows of a place that sells used or demo splits, holla holla. TIA (post on here though cause i'm too stupid to figure out PMs)

Just as a heads-up, the Khyber has lots of rocker in the nose and the tail.  It's a great split and I would highly recommend it, but it is pretty heavily rockered.

I just replaced my phone and have a functional camera again, so I can share a couple camber shots later on tonight for you to check out.

As someone who has 4 Khybers, with two of them being splits, I agree, there is a healthy amount of rocker in the nose and tail on a Khyber. At the same time it has a healthy amount of camber in the middle of the board as well. It climbs just fine and has no problems with skin tracks. I had a Venture years back with a flat profile and it was much worse on the skin track than my Khyber. 

Honestly, the Khyber is the funnest, best riding deck in pow I’ve ever been on, it’s why I have 4 of them..

I highly recommend the Khyber, it’s got plenty of camber under foot, it won’t disappoint...

Agreed.  In my experience, it skins very well, and the combination of the rockered tail, the huge taper, and the fairly open sidecut radius results in a board that turns on a dime while remaining very calm (i.e. without the tail being hooky).

Here are some camber shots, though I am not very good at taking them, admittedly.  As you can see, the nose and tail are both quite rockered.  If you look at the touring brackets (or Dynafit toepieces in this case), you'll see that they are centred on the cambered section, which lends it good skinning ability.

Again, I think the Khyber is definitely worth looking at; it's a killer split.
