Jones Storm Chaser Split Package Deal
Jones Storm Chaser Split (Normally: $898.99)
Details: The otherworldly performance of the Storm Chaser could not be contained to just the resort boundaries. The Storm Chaser Splitboard unlocks access to those remote frozen swells and packs insane float into a short, but still high volume board. The ultra-wide waist width maximizes the float of the shortened running length and the Surf Rocker profile pops the nose even further out of the snow when you step on the gas. Turn your tightest tree runs into a GS course on this nimble stick on even the deepest days. The Storm Chaser Splitboard features the Boltless Bridge which eliminates base hardware and Karakoram ultra clips for improved connection between board halves.
Boltless-Bridge: The Bolt-less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stifness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.
Profile: Custom tip/tail rocker profile designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson for the Mountain Surfer and Storm Chaser. The nose rocker starts just inside of the front inserts and the tail rocker starts just at the back inserts. When you weight the tail of the board the nose ramps up out of the snow for insane float on the deepest days.
These subtle rocker contours match a Christenson surfboard rocker profile.
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. “Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker.”
“How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep, is dictated by it’s front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow coming out from behind the tip means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer nose without the ‘snow plow’ rounded tip and it’s extra swing weight.” - Jeremy Jones

Jones Nomad Pro Skins (Normally: $248.99)
Details: Jones Nomad PRO Skins are the ultimate high performance splitboard climbing skin and offer unmatched performance in any snow condition. The blend of 70% Mohair / 30% Synthetic Nylon fibers provides the perfect balance of glide and grip and the fibers have been coated with both EVER DRY Anti-glopping treatment to improve performance in wet snow and GLIDE TECH treatment which helps maintain the glide of the fibers for the lifetime of the skin. Jones Nomad PRO Skins have been laminated with RUBBER SAFER SKIN backing. This rubber layer guarantees the skin will not absorb water and also makes the skins easy to pull apart.
70% MOHAIR / 30% NYLON
Jones Nomad and Nomad PRO climbing skins are both made with a blend of 70% natural mohair fiber and 30% synthetic nylon. The mohair offers unmatched glide and a supple skin feel while the nylon improves grip and water repellency.
Jones skins are treated with EVER DRY anti-glopping treatment. The coating keeps the skins from absorbing moisture and prevents snow/ice build-up under the skin.
Glide Tech coating reduces friction on each skin fiber so neither super-cold fresh snow or wet, hot snow will stick to the skin and rob energy-saving glide.
Grip Tech skins are made with a special material that works well under dynamic tension and has a high resistance to twisting and abrasion.
RUBBER SAFER SKINS
Jones Nomad PRO skins are laminated with a rubber backing that prevents skins from getting water logged. Drier skins are safer as they are less likely to lose adhesion to your skis in critical situations.

Jones Higher 30L Backpack (Normally: $148.99)
Details: Mixed weather, climbing gear, cameras - there’s always a reason another ‘something’ gets thrown in your pack before you leave the trailhead. The 30L is the perfect pack for big objectives when you gotta bring the full kit. It’s bigger in the right spots as a separate avy tool pocket, dual hip pockets, stow-able helmet holder and a back panel zipper to the main compartment provide ample storage and easy access to your gear. Despite the larger volume, the 30L pack is efficiently designed and the thermo-molded back panel and shoulder straps provide a comfortable, ergonomic fit. New For 2018, the HIGHER 30L RAS is built with lighter weight fabric and we eliminated excess material in the shoulder straps and hip belt for a more streamlined fit.
