There’s fresh snow and the lift lines are already out of control. Luckily our car’s got four-wheel drive and our quiver has the Weston Hatchet Splitboard ready to go. This short-and-wide split has enough float to handle the deepest stashes while staying nimble enough for quick turns through the trees. We love its stabilizing camber profile and the way it gets us up and down the mountain confidently. A little extra weight at the tail rocker on each tip and a directional taper boost buoyancy even further.
