2012 Mt Baker Splitfest Wrap Up

Earlier this spring, G3 proudly sponsored the 2012 Mt Baker Splitfest. Its great to see more and more people taking advantage of splitboards to travel through the backcountry, and G3's Alpinist Splitboard Climbing Skins are getting some good mileage. Here's a short event wrap up, recently received from the event organizer...

The 2012 Mt Baker Splitfest was a huge success.  We almost doubled the number of attendees from last year. This year we had over 100 people participating in self guided backcountry tours. 

We had 5 board manufacturers and 2 splitboard specific binding manufacturers come to demo their products.

Chair 9 Pizza hosted our raffle where 200 people attended the raffle and we raised $4600 for NWAC. The raffle included 6 splitboards and an incredible amount of gear. The grand prize was full splitboard setup from Karakorum and Jones Snowboards.

More photos and chatter can be found in this Splitboard.com forum thread. And here's an awesome powder photo filled Trip Report from Chris at Splitboard.com.
