Splitboarding is transforming how snowboarders access the backcountry by making it easier to traverse and gain ground in hard to reach places.The problem is that now you have no excuse to not ride all those hard-to-reach spots. The point is brought home for Colin in this episode as he finds himself moving across terrain that requires a little mountaineering and a lot of motivation.
Follow him as he hikes into some remote lines near Bariloche, Argentina, then heads back to New Zealand for a crack at Mr. Brewster. None of the lines in this video are particularly easy to access but that's just the way Colin prefers it. With his splitboard and a pair of skins this is no place he won't go.
