Splitboarding with Sam Haraldson
Credit: Sam Haraldson

Sam Haraldson lives in Bozeman, Montana, and is a reliable source of bloggage from the spectacular northern Rockies. He’s a wizened veteran of splitboarding, which relies on a snowboard sawed in half for backcountry touring (why go to all the trouble? C’mon, if you know any snowboarders, why would you even ask?)

Sam’s snowboarding adventures are chronicled here. The pic above is a screen grab from a video he shot in the Grand Tetons in February 2010. Here’s a look at his gear list.

Here’s pic-rich narrative of one his outings.
