The elooa SPLITBOARD EXPLORER CAMP presented by K2 SNOWBOARDING und MARMOT was the last Splitboard Camp of this years winter season. There the participants experienced an unique mountain adventure: splitboarding and overnight stay in expedtion tents above 2000m!
With almost summer temperatures, a great crew of adventurers started on friday noon with their expedtion material into an unforgettable weekend. With splitboards under their feet and expediton material on their back they mastered a three hour hike to our camp base above 2000m. Straight after arrival the sleeping place had to be prepared, the tents set up and a cozy log fire started so the first night in the backcountry could come up.
With the first warming sunrays on saturday monring, everybody jumped out of his sleeping bag and enjoyed a healthy breakfast under the warm spring sun. Subsequent a splitboard tour followed as far as the avalanche conditions allowed. After the run down all interested joined an avalanche safety training and all motivated hit a backcountry kicker under the hot sun. An unforgettable day ended in our camp base at the log fire with fresh drinks, delicious food and later with warming hot wine punch.
After a strong windstorm during the night, the tents had to be broken down and everything packed together in the morning after breakfast. The splitboards were strapped on and an endless long run down into the valley followed. After returning the testmaterial from K2, Marmot and BCA, smiling faces recaped this adventures weekend: „Thanks elooa for the great organisation and Servus until the next Splitboard Camp!“
