Thumbs Up from Wildsnow for G3's Alpinist Splitboard Climbing Skins

It's always rewarding to see G3's years of blood, sweat, tears, and innovation yield new products that truly give skiers or riders a safer, more reliable, and more enjoyable experience out in the backcountry. Judging by the hugely positive response our Alpinist Splitboard Climbing Skins have earned over the first two seasons of production, we really hit the mark on this one.

We enjoyed another industry 'thumbs up' today from the gang at; the authority on all things backcountry touring. Jonathan Cooper put G3's Alpinist Splitboard Climbing Skins to the test in Alaska, and came back with powdery memories and good things to say. He summed it up with "G3’s Alpinist Splitboard Skin has risen to the need in creating a functional splitboard skin that features an innovative tip and tail clip for the offset skis of traditional splitboards on the market."

We can't wait for more riders to make the switch from snowshoes to splitboards, and start using and abusing these skins over the next few seasons. It's an exciting time for splitboarders indeed.
