Carlos Cummings, owner of Center Punch Splitboards, stands near two splitboards on Todd Ridge at Todd Lake, March 7, as he prepares to snowboard back down the slope. Splitboards are snowboards that split into two, allowing the boarder to apply skins for touring and then adjust the two sides into a single board for riding.
