The poster for the 2015 Baker Splitfest is ready. This year’s event is shaping up to be great. The dates are March 27th, 28th and 29th, 2015. This is also the same weekend as the Baker Beacon Rally so you can tour and get some beacon practice. Even if the snow is questionable the raffle is going to be amazing!
Here is the current list of manufacturers planning demos:
Karakoram, Voile, Spark R&D, Prior, Trapper, Jones, Never Summer, Chimera, Palace Snowboards, Weston, Venture, G3, Lib-Tech and Komperdell
We have Boardworks Tech Shop doing free waxes at the event! Palace Snowboards and She-Jumps are leading a women’s tour, sign up on Facebook. And as the event gets closer watch the website and Facebook page to sign up for demos.

Hello splitters! I’ve been getting lots of questions if the Baker Splitfest is going to happen.
The short answer is, yes, the event is going to happen!
The long answer is the snow is up high and will require some extra effort to get to. This event serves a couple of purposes. One is to meet other splitboarders and get out into the back country near Mt Baker. Second, we raise funds for NWAC so we can make good decisions in the back country. Rumor has it touring has been great around Heliotrope, Twin Lakes and higher elevations of Artist Point. Don’t want to do the extra hiking to the snow? Hike or mountain bike something lower but come to Chair 9 for the raffle and meet up with others! We’ll be showing the Split Life movie at 7:30 on Saturday so we remember what snow was like. As for the raffle, we’ve got some awesome stuff again this year. Keep watching the Facebook page and I’ll start posting some of the prizes in the next week. Just to tease a couple of things, how about a certificate for any board Prior makes, Patagonia outerwear and who doesn’t need some Voile straps? Don’t forget to stop and check out the local businesses too. This season has been brutal for them.
