Make your own Split

Splitboarding is the best way to get out and explore the backcountry on a snowboard. If you don’t have the cash to buy a factory made splitter, or you’re looking to prolong the life of one of your older boards, you can make your own with the Voile Split Kit and some power tools.  It’s pretty easy and definitely rewarding once you get your split out on the snow!  The following links document the splits I’ve made over time along with what I’ve learned through the process.  I’d like to thank Ryan at Berg’s Ski & Snowboard shop for giving me a couple of beater boards over the years to practice cutting and drilling on.
