Jones Snowboards Carbon Solution Splitboard - $989.96

Splitboarding used to be a nice way to get some mellow powder after the resort had been tracked out. However, it was never a realistic alternative to heli-ing, sledding or old-fashioned hiking to the top for serious big mountain riding because the boards weren't stiff or responsive enough to handle burlier lines. That's all changing with the Jones Carbon Solution Snowboard. Its ultralight all-carbon topsheet is insanely responsive for precise control, and it features Karakoram hardware that drastically improves splitboard connection, so you can say goodbye to tip and tail chatter and hello to confidently sending big cliffs and hairy lines. - $989.96
