Splitboarding Sites


Splitboard Journal - Probably the best resource for board reviews.

Splitboard Mag    

The Gemsstock

The Bearded Splitboarder

Independent Splitboard Stores


If ​you think your local shop should be here, or if you're a shop and you want to be added, please let us know.  We only want proper independent splitboard shops with a good range of gear and knowledgeable staff.  The online stores and the big chains don't need the exposure, and if all they've got is a couple for splits in the corner just to be 'core that won't cut it!


Sick & Wrong Snowboarding  - Keswick, Cumbria


Zero G - Chamonix







Guided Trips


The only one of these we've got any experience of is Stentiford Snowboarding, so if you've used these or any others please let us know what you thought and we'll add them.
