Yep, while Chamonix's lifts remain closed for another fortnight, Nico was able to poach 40cm of fresh, cold pow pow on November the 16th with the Morning Split under his feet. In his own words:
"Today I rode 1700m vertical in Chamonix (Grands Montets) with the Morning Glory Split in 3 hours, in 40cm of fresh snow! It's really important to have something light on your feet in those conditions, the Morning Split was perfect!"
So to all those snowboarders still wondering whether to invest in a Morning Split... by the sounds of it the answer is no, unless of course you like riding 40cm of untracked when the lifts are shut!
