At the end of March 21 we were back in the Pyrenees for the annual Splitboard Magazine test. After the rollercoaster of temperatures and snowfall our mountains had experienced last Winter, this time we had to move our test to the resort of Baqueira-Beret in the Aran Valley. We were about to start the test when an unexpected snowstorm provided the best conditions for epic splitboarding.
We’re back with the annual Splitboard Magazine after being forced to cancel it in March 2020 due to the global Covid-19 crisis. Back then, we had run the test for two intense days when we heard the news from the resort at Tavascán-La Pleta del Prat : they were about to close. The whole logistic effort put down to prep the test fell apart, followed by rough times for the snow industry.
And here we are again, back with renovated thrill, and of course, a wide sample of the splitboards for men available in the market this season, unfortunately, no women’s splitboards were available for the test. As usual, we would like to thank everyone involved in the test, and above all, thanks to the brands, both, those who back us yet another season, and those who are joining the test for the first time.
The first and only magazine dedicated entirely to the splitboarding world, featuring all the information related to mountains, splitboards, bindings, trip reports, interviews, equipment reviews and more.
