Picked up a Hovercraft (not a split) this season and must say, it's becoming my go-to in any condition over 3" of pow and/or crud. In pow, it kills with a nice blend of flex and stiffness where you need it. Holds a traverse line well and absolutely flys when opened up. Turns well in the trees. Super light-weight (running Cartels bindings), playful, fun. Epic board for the quiver. The split version should be similar and I recommend the Karakoram or Spark R&D binding set up. I use the Solution split as my go-to backcountry touring rig.
