The Best Splitboards of 2023
Splitboards open up new worlds to snowboarders by enabling them to tour in the backcountry more efficiently. With ski resorts becoming more crowded, parking difficulties, lift ticket and pass prices, splitboarding is quickly becoming more popular. It allows a person to get away from crowds, and enjoy some wilderness solace and pristine lines. Luckily, we at Never Summer were ahead of the trend, having built splitboards since 2000. With this history and experience we have designed a complete lineup of the most advance splitboards for every rider and budget,
Below is an entire guide to the top splitboards we offer. Whether you’re new to splitboarding or a seasoned backcountry enthusiast, you are guaranteed to find the perfect splitboard for you.
