Splitboard Sunday : Doolans edition

Splitboard Sunday : Doolans edition

Spending the day in the Doolans with my love and my splitboard under the most perfect bluebird sky was incredible. My skills are progressing much faster than I had hoped, & thanks to some good pointers I finally feel like I might actually be getting the hang of splitting! Rather than drone on about how […]

Saturday Session : Liz Daley

Saturday Session : Liz Daley

Another Saturday droppin’ in HOT! This time with a lady that’s taking snowboarding to the back of beyond, splitting her board in two and climbing gnarly peaks for the privilege of dropping some seriously epic lines.   Liz Daley   My first inspiration in taking the move to splitboarding, watching Liz get into steep couliors […]

Happy Valentines my loves! In the spirit of Valentines day, I’m sharing the love for Splitboard Mag….

Winter Wrap Up

Winter Wrap Up

Summer is officially here, so it’s probably time to look back on the winter that was. I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a few weeks now but honestly, I wasn’t ready to let winter go just yet! Even mother nature isn’t quite ready to let it go either, providing a sweet little dusting […]

Inspiration

Inspiration

Inspiration is a funny thing…at the moment I’m finding it in all sorts of unusual places. A news article about an unfortunate climber’s death on Mt Cook led me to an afternoon of researching the hugely inspiring life of Sir Edmund Hillary, which left a burning desire to conquer my metaphorical and physical mountains.  Watching […]

Progress

Progress

Sitting in my armchair, enjoying the afternoon sun, reflecting on a busy weekend of splitboarding at Temple Basin…and I realise that it’s all worthwhile. The early mornings, cold fingers & toes, car camping, the scream of my poor lungs when I’m slogging it out uphill, the sore muscles, the bruises, the teeny weeny bank balance….yep […]

Wonderful Wye

Wonderful Wye

I topped out at just over 1950m, changed over from ski mode and strapped myself in pausing for a moment to breathe in the crisp mountain air and admire the sheer grandeur of the back side of The Remarkables. Had it not been for the 4 ski tourers heading back into resort, I would have […]

Weather Watch

Weather Watch

Checking the weather…definitely a normal part of my day which swiftly turns into an obsession when a splitboard mission is on the cards!

It might sound obvious, but splitboarding is a seriously demanding sport, so keeping our bodies properly fueled helps us travel further and ride longer. Personally I feel that my body behaves better when I don’t eat grain-heavy foods,  which means I have to put a little more thought into what I’m going to chow down […]

Ortovox Free Rider

To say that I am fussy would be a MASSIVE understatement, although I prefer to say that I know what I like, and what I don’t like. This often leads to having to “settle” for something that isn’t 100% what I am looking for, or to simply giving up. In the case of the Ortovox […]
