Set the track and get pitted.
Skyrocketing season pass costs, long liftlines, and mad-dashes for powder are just a few reasons to skip the resorts this season for the solitude and deep powder of the backcountry. The vehicle to take you to deeper, untouched places? You guessed it, the Rome Whiteroom Splitboard. This directional splitboard has a set-back stance and Powder S-Camber profile, both of which help you effortlessly glide over the deepest snow without bogging down. Delivering camber through its mid-section, the Whiteroom's Powder S-Camber feels snappy under your back foot, helping you drive turns and slash windlips with the precise power of camber. After the board's mid-section, there's substantial rocker that continues all the way to the nose for maximum floatation, ensuring that your nose planes over anything in its path including untracked powder, bumps, and choppy snow.
Designed with Rome's AirPop Core Matrix, the Whiteroom's core has poplar for maximum strength and pop, which is blended with five zones of ultra-low-density wood for a lightweight feel that conserves energy on long up-hill tours. StraightTriax 30 laminates make for a responsive feel when you're carving and gunning it down the mountain, yet these laminates still allow for enough torsional flex to bank turns between trees and make quick movements.
Infusing spring-loaded pop, the board's HotRods-Carbon Double Barrel are milled into the core, helping you transfer power to your effective edge when you're slashing and railing turns. Additionally, Rome's provided a SinterSpeed Base for fast glide over variable snow conditions, as well as added resistance to scratches and dings from buried debris, such as rocks, stumps, and branches. Note that the Whiteroom comes with industry-leading Karakoram clips that remove slop along the seam, helping to eliminate tip and tail chatter at high speeds.

Awesome in the deep stuff, not so great dust on crust. The profile really makes climbing easy, I'm always amazed at the slope angle that's climbable.
