Split Your Old Board By Mail Order!

The cost of the service is $130.00 including the shipping back to you. You only need to cover the cost of shipping to Eagle Mountain, Utah.
This service does NOT include the cost of the Voile Split Kit-$160.00, Skins-$150.00, or Crampons-$85.00, but they have these items available for sale at normal retail prices.

Check it out if you have an old board you want to Split!

The owner of Mountain and Terrian Technologies, Dean Whitehead also adds: I use a custom made jig to cut the boards on a table saw.

I also install additional upgrades to splitboard hardware not provided by Voile.

For an additional fee I offer the rotating puck system for your splitboard! We install rotating pucks and the hardware needed so you can ride goofy or regular and also adjust your stance angles just like the factory splits.

Also if they buy the split kit and skins from me, the split service is only $100.

Check out the latest news and reviews for information on M n T Technologies.

Glen Plake a Parrothead?

He does have the biggest hair in the ski world, but we think he just has an appreciation for a fine performance backcountry ski. Photo by Jarl Berg of Berg's Ski Shop in Eugene, Oregon. Jarl is saving the other custom "Buffett" graphic Voile Insane ski for Mr. Jimmy Buffet's autograph.

Deepest Day, High Avy Danger, All Before Work?

Last year was a pretty thin year, by Wasatch backcountry skier/rider standards.(Yeah, we're spoiled.) But we got some big storms end of February and beginning of March 2007. Of course the avy danger was consistently high, but the great thing about the Wasatch, there are so many amazing and safe places to backcountry ski/ride on those high danger days. On top of that, if the canyon is open, you can get to these trailheads in 30-40 minutes.(Yeah, we are really spoiled!)

And all this can happen before you have to show up at your day job at 9am. A Dawn Patrol.

With a 5am start on Friday March 2, 2007, my good friend CJ Whittaker, a free lance photographer, and I headed for destination Circle-All Peak in Big Cottonwood Canyon via the Bulter Fork trailhead. We were surprised to see some cars already at the trailhead and even more surprised and.... frankly thankful to see a fresh trail break through 30-40 inches of fresh Wasatch powder. When we caught up to the trail breakers, we were sure to bow to them and thank them for their hard work. Good uphill etiquette.

With a somewhat low slope angle and reasonably spaced aspen trees, Circle-All Peak can be a great place to ski or ride on high avy days. After some snow stability tests, we made a few epic and bottomless runs and were back to work by 9am with fresh attitudes and huge smiles on our faces.
