Don't fall prey to "the dark side."
Buy a splitboard. If you already have boots and bindings, all you need is the board. Prices range from $600 to $1000 for a complete set-up (board, interface, skins, crampons.)
Here are the manufacturers that are currently making splitboards:
Voile - everyone licenses their interface. They're boards appeal to specific tastes, though. They basically have 2 models; supersoft (freeride) for powder or superstiff (Mtn. Gun) for steep hardpack
Prior - My personal favorite. They have a ton of different shapes, and they use an icredibly lightweight fiberglass... check out www.priorsnowboards.com
Winterstick - They have their first model, now. Basicaly a split version of the Sever Terrain 162
Neversummer - They will split any of heir shapes. The boards are works of art, but they are pretty $spendy$
Burton - They will have a few shapes next year, but noone is sure what they will be. We do know that they have dropped their interface and are licensing the Voile system... much more reliable.
Splitboards kick ass... You'll be amazed at how well they perform in solid mode. Jim Zellers, Tom Burt, Jonaven Moore and others can't be wrong.
