We its pretty safe to assume everyone had a great time at splitfest. Big ups to Adam for putting it on and thanks to all the sponsors that showed up. The crew I was with managed to summit little twynam which was a big effort for us considering 3 of the 4 had never ridden a split before. Here are a few pics I took. Ps. I know hugh took some mad shots at island bend last night around the camp fire, if you are reading mate post them up.

Some info on the weekend Packed the car with every splitboard I could find that wasn't at the shop
We had 40cm of fresh the Friday of the Festival, this set up the weekend for some good new snow. Had a massive turnout on the Friday night to watch "Free rider 70+ people attended.
After the movie we held the raffle, id like to thank the sponsors Voile, Spark R&D, K2, Sweetgrass Productions, Powder Whores, Venture Snowboards, G3 and SB.com. Sorted out the rentals for the weekend and hit the hay at 2am. Woke to a Blue bird day and headed up to the start point for 8am.
Meet my 6 to do the Splitboard clinic and headed off. We had knee deep Ozzie POW and did three laps of Guth Trig
I didn't ride Sunday, gave my ankle a rest, but from what I've heard it was as good a day as Sat. Had a few beers with the gang at Island Bend Sat Night.
Id like to thank all those that turned up for the event and hope next years two festivals will be bigger and better.
