Join Vermont Splitboard month at Pico apart, together

Splitboard Vermont organizers were feeling a bit isolated and lonely while working hard to do their part in fighting the current world health crisis. In trying to figure out ways to hang with the splitboard community at festivals like Pico Hiko and Bolton Valley Split and Surf-fest, they realized there was just no way to do so and do their part in caring for small shred towns. So, they’re taking this thing digital.

Apart, together: Get out and explore this little Green Mountain State. Warm up the irons, oil up the bushings, and add some thread-locker to those bolts — it’s time to get out and see Vermont on splitboards and share those excursions digitally.

During the month of February, Splitboard Vermont, in partnership with the Catamount Trail Association, is excited to announce:
