You're a snowboarder, and you're keeping an eye on the evolution of ski touring. You would also like to join a group for a day trip, away from the crowds, in the Queyras massif, to make your own tracks in a powder field.
With the splitboard, it's possible. In recent years, the splitboard has made significant technical advancements, becoming a direct competitor to ski touring. Although slightly heavier than ski touring gear on the ascent, the splitboard is very enjoyable for downhill use, and handling changes in snow conditions is easier compared to skiers.
