What boots to use while splitboarding? what crampons? and do i need a heel welt? wait, what's a heel welt?

 

Episode 7 & 8 aim to answer some of those questions.  If you have questions after watching the videos feel free to ask and we'll do our best to answer them. 

 

Episode 7: splitboard boots

Boots are a highly personal piece of equipment. If they don't fit or have the right flex for your style of riding your day will suck. Hopefully this video helps you pick the right boots for your style of riding.   

 

Episode 8: Crampons 

As your skills in splitboarding advance and you start doing mountaineering style objectives, crampons will be needed at some point. They're super useful (maybe even mandatory) when you need them but they can also get you into trouble. This video is a quick primer as to what style of crampons (and their features) work with snowboard boots. 

Please seek qualified instruction from a guide prior to using crampons in a mountaineering setting. Needless to say a fall in a steep, icy location could be hazardous to your health.
