Nah, too much extra weight! I'm going splitboard as soon as I can afford it!

You should talk to Zack about splitboards...they are all that they are cracked up to be.

I much prefer my 120cm ascent skis and the rigidity of a real snowboard.

If you must, word has it that the priors are the best.

I've heard great things about the latest Burton S-series, with the Voile interface (Burton apparently made the wise decision to get out of that game, since Voile had already perfected it), as far as rigidity goes. Of course, at about $900-$1000, I'm not ready to go there yet. I'll make due with snowshoes for the time being (out outpaced my buddies who were on skis & skins once the going got even mildly steep; they were much faster on the flats).

Do you have one pair of boots that you can use with the skis and the board?

I am also leaning towards getting a splitboard next season. Was thinking I'd probably get a Voile.

Either get something like a Karhu Meta and use soft snowboard, boots, or rip the binding off the Meta install Dynafit toepieces and go on an Alpine Touring boot. You will probably want the stiff sole of the AT boot sooner or later if you are booting up or down technical terrain out west.
