If you're like us, you've already watched your favorite splitboard movies twice and you wish you could be doing a little more actual splitboarding. With that in mind, we created a simple little tournament for splitboarders all around the world to participate in and help decide what are the best splitboard locations in the world. It's meant to be fun, not super serious, and just an easy distraction.
Yeah, we know there are a lot of different brackets and contests out there. But this one is specifically for the splitboard community! It's pretty simple, first, we need 16 locations, zones, or mountain ranges. You can nominate an area you are familiar with riding as the Best Splitboard Destination in the World using the form below until Monday, April 13th. After that, the tournament field will be set and we'll share the voting opportunities on this page and Spark R&D's social media channels. If your nomination is selected as 1 of the 16 to be in the tournament, you'll win a pack of Spark swag and goodies. If your exact selection (nomination) wins the tournament, we'll send you a set of 20/21 bindings next Fall!
This is meant to be a fun distraction! We're not looking for your secret stash or a specific trailhead you like to use. Nominate large areas like The Montafon Valley in Austria, the Eastern Sierras, or the Lyngen Alps in Norway. We promise, because your general area gets in the tournament, there will not be a hundred more people at your favorite trailhead next year.
Click here or the button below for the nomination form. The nomination period ends at 11:59 p.m. (23:59) on Monday, April 13th. The tournament voting begins Tuesday the 14th and will continue for about 2-weeks. Voting forms will be distributed on this page and via Spark R&D social media channels.
