The Drift Boards — Approach Skis for Backcountry Snowboarding

If you ride a snowboard and have any affinity at all for using it in the backcountry, trying to find a less-expensive solution than dropping a couple grand on a splitboard can be like stepping back in time at least a decade.

When I told a friend I was looking at approach skis for access he laughed and told me our snowboarding compadres had dealt with this struggle in 2005.

Drift Boards are 35 inches long, 6.75 inches wide and covered tip to tail in a hardy skin—synthetic mohair that allows for climbing uphill while still allowing for glide, an important element in the backcountry.

How do they climb in powder?

Max B says:

Those packed skis look deadly so close to your head with no helmet. Wonder if they’d work better with a helmet that packs the skis diagonally.
