OK, we all know splitboarding is a hazardous activity that could result in injury or even death. 


Snowboarding generally has significant risk, but going into the backcountry presents many more challenges.  There's lots of useful information on this site on how to keep safer, but it is in no way a substitute for proper training from an expert, coupled with a good dose of common sense and humility.  As a minimum, transceiver training, avalanche and snowpack awareness, first aid, and ropework and crevasse rescue training (if you're going to glacial terrain) are recommended, but even these can only reduce the risk and will never eliminate it completely.  

There are also numerous links on this website to videos depicting cliff drops and other dangerous stunts.  These are performed by professional athletes in a controlled environment and should not be imitated under any circumstances.
