Weston Backwoods Splitboard



The Weston Backwoods Splitboard is a soft-snow-centric board designed to confidently manage backcountry terrain: from wide-open powder fields to narrow trees. The board has a directional, multi-radial, camber-rocker profile. That means the board isn't symmetrical, with a wide nose and narrow tail. The wide nose helps with flotation in deep snow while the narrow tail improves the board's agility in tight terrain. The multi-radial (the turning radius increasing from tip to tail), camber-rocker shape further helps the intent of the board to be able to handle both big arching powder turns and tight narrow tree turns. The Backwoods is built from the Slayer Wood Core, which is comprised of bamboo and poplar - a combination used to find a balance between energetic and damp. Two vertical carbon stringers are added to maintain the board's profile and add energy to the shape. This board is scaled as a 7/10 flex by Weston, with its focus being Powder and Freeride. Coming in at 7.63 lbs, the board is light enough for all-day backcountry travel. If you are looking for a backcountry specific splitboard, the Weston Backwoods is your one-stop-shop. Its shape and construction give it the destiny of human-powered, soft-snow surfing. Backed by Weston's 4-year warranty, it's hard to say no to this Backwoods Beast.

Backwoods

This boards slays...great float in pow, snap turns in the woods, and charges on groomers. No issue when you need to get switch either...well done Weston!

Backwoods is the GOODS

Got to rip the Backwoods up Mt. YOTEI in JP. It is just an awesomely fun board, all around ripper. It is killer to carve with the camber profile under your feet and set back stance and gentle taper. It sprays huge sprays and stomps airs and cliffs easily. When you get a chance to let it run it absolutely floats down fall line and links big turns. It rides switch for big ol'butters, switch takeoffs or a break on tracks out. Also very fun on slush and spring corn for surfy slashes.

Quick, nimble, and floats great!

This is my favorite splitboard all winter especially for riding powder. I really love how quick you can turn this thing through tight trees. Which if you live in Colorado you’re usually riding in the trees quite a bit. This board does well in all conditions and has done great in steep couloirs as well as meadow skipping in deeper snow. The backwoods is a great board to have in the quiver and if you’re looking for some lightweight I’d recommend checking out the carbon version!

All Mountain Split-Board

Been riding the backwoods for several years now and have nothing but good things to say. The board has great edge control, handles really well going through trees and other areas where quick responsiveness is needed. The set back stance gives a great feeling as the nose lifts and you glide easily down the mountain. This board has won several years and I feel each year Weston out does themselves and continues to build on such a stellar board. If you aren't concerned with riding switch, I cannot think of a more versatile, better board to ride.

Good for uphill, amazing in powder, a bit unforgiving up front but grips well on hard snow.

Cripple Creek got the board shipped to me in northeastern California in time for me to trek up to Mount Bachelor and experience the Thanksgiving miracle. Thanks guys. Skinning up Bachelor on a bluebird day, I honestly felt like I had my touring skis on. So for me the Backwoods is plenty light for the purpose, and feels durable. On the way down the untracked backside, it was a dream in the powder, and was effortless to turn even in the heavier, wetter snow lurking in the trees. A really great experience. Back on the tracked out frontside, I could tell that it is torsionally rigid and holds a firm edge on harder snow. The downside of that feature is that it also has a fairly stiff flex up front and feels a bit more unforgiving than I'm used to when going over irregular terrain. I'm 5'11" and 215 lbs and normally ride a 163 cm freeride board, so I went with a 167 cm for the Backwoods splitboard. With G3 universal skins and so much surface area, the skins never slipped at all. It was even easier to skin straight up the hill than I am used to with my touring skis, and the uphill position is balanced perfectly. The two halves don't seem to line up exactly when locked together (~1/8 inch off), but I can't imagine that having anything other than a cosmetic effect. I'm quite happy with the Backwoods splitboard so far and is a board that is really is great in the powder and trees but seems like it will also be good for corn cycles.

All-Mountain splitboard boss

The Weston Backwoods board is something special.. I'm coming off a 2018 Jones Solution which hardly lasted a full season. The topsheet edges starting getting chipped and delaminated, and Jones didn't want to work with me to replace it - they said it was user error when skinning! Anyways, my friend recommend I checkout Weston boards and the Backwoods sound right up my alley. I'm loving this board so far! The stance is set back just enough so you get great tip float and quick turn initiation in powder. The board is real surfy and playful in powder, but can also punch through crud and crust like a boss. The board seems a lot more durable too - no issues with ege chips or delamination. Seems like the perfect board for backcountry riding no matter the conditions or terrain...
