BEFORE YOU START 

Your split is in the downhill position, so it is in snowboard mode.
To switch it to the uphill position, you will have to split it in 2 and turn it into 2 skis :

1/ Release the rear latch to remove the bindings
2/ Open the hooks at the nose and tail.
3/ Slide the skis together vertically, to free the hooks and separate the sides.
4/ Reverse the skis. The hooks should be on the outside.
5/ Mount the bindings in the mounted position, with the buckles on the outside.
6/ Also tilt the spoiler of the binding in the up position to have more rearward travel so that you can extend the pitch.
7/ Put the skins on the soles of your skis
8/ Set your poles

You can start your ascent!

DURING THE CLIMB

During the ascent, when the slope becomes steep, you can use the climbing wedges to ease the effort.
Located underneath the bindings, you simply turn them by one notch to bring them closer to your heel.

Quick tip : use the handle of your stick to adjust the position of the wedge.

Up at last! All you want to do is put on your shoes and ride! But first, we explain how to switch from skis to a board:

1/ Remove the skins, fold using the net and careful put them away in your bag.
2/ Reshape your snowboard using the clips and hooks on the nose and tail of the board.
