Desirethis.com recently featured the MTNApproach Deep Winter Kit on their website. ”With this splitboard alternative, you can spend more time hiking and riding and less time transitioning from one mode to another.”
Jed Doane spent the winter snowboarding and testing MTNApproach in the mountains of Southern Colorado. Here is an excerpt from his review on Blister Gear Reviews:
“The MTN Approach System solves a few fundamental issues with backcountry riding: first, it allows for the rider to ride a fully intact snowboard, without the downhill performance issues that may bother some riders with a splitboard. Second, it allows for the rider to switch boards day to day depending on preference and conditions.
In addition to these core advantages, the maneuverability, low per-step weight, and skinning performance of the skis make for a pretty enjoyable uphill experience in most conditions.”
JP Solberg and Mads Jonsson wanted to show us the amazing terrain Norway has to offer backcountry snowboarders. These photos are a glimpse into their everyday view.
Due to the motorized restrictions in the backcountry by the government, JP and crew are using the MTNApproach System to access the terrain without having to cut their snowboards in half. We can’t wait to see where their travels take them next.
Maybe you’ve heard of Travis Rice? Yeah, he likes riding his snowboard in the backcountry! Watch as he ‘keeps it together’ this season with a solid board for Asymbol‘s #passitonproject.
#passitonproject is an experiment in social art: to document one board’s journey through the global snowboard community, seeing how many riders it can be passed on to and just how far around the world it can travel. For more information, click here: http://tinyurl.com/aqxtvfo
