    Can't find these anywhere... (help)

    I am curious beyond belief what ski's these are. Ralph Backstrom is the only one i have seen use them and dont even know how to search for them online as there seems to be no brand marking (just north face markings)

    [ame="http://vimeo.com/11039546"]Thompson Pass, Valdez, AK with Ralph Backstrom on Vimeo[/ame]

    about 10secs in he pans over them. never seen anything like them before... any help would be greatful!

    thanks in advance,

    Luke

    Don't be a goober. That's a splitboard.

    Weird, it almost looks like a snowboard, split longitudinally and with some kind of touring binding on it, that can be used for approaching backcountry objectives.

    Nah, that'd be crazy.

    YO LUKE. I DO YOUR MOM FROM BEHIND UNTIL SHE TAPS OUT. HOW'S THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
    Hey d-bag - here's something for you to think about: maybe (just maybe) not everybody here has their little panties in a wad 24/7 and flies into a rage whenever somebody disagrees with them. Maybe these same mags don't take this place uber-seriously. Maybe this even includes the vast majority of the people who post here as opposed to you and like 20 other thin-skinned douchebags. Just something to think about. -JER
