Why are you a splitboarder?
Well the snow is better, the lines are more challenging, the terrain more varied, and things never get that tracked out. I mean it also keeps me from being arrested, because of how badly I want to hit the guy in the lift-line who is smoking, and yelling, and then leaves his crushed beer can on the ground *grin*. However, that aside, I do have to say that being able to get away from people, the noise, and all of the distractions that make a lot of resorts feel like extensions of the city is a big part of why I am out there. As a rider it has exposed me to deeper snow, more challenging riding, and a very different community. I think all of that can be seen in the way that back country riding is now far more of a life-style for me rather than simply being something I do a few days every winter.
