Splitboarding "in my backyard".
Second day of testing my new Burton Freebird.
Hiked a nearby hill three times and tested two different routes down. Unfortunately the hill is not quite steep enough for this about 40cm of snow, so at first I had trouble keeping up speed. Then I started following a trail down and it got much easier to get more speed when I needed it.
It was a nice day and I chatted a while with and old man who was coming up the same trail that I was heading down. Also when I was turning by board into skis at the bottom of the hill an oldish cross country skier lady stopped to ask me how my ride down had been. :)
