The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Burton Hometown Hero Splitboard has delivered many great experiences for me in the backcountry. This board was my very first splitboard purchase and I spent a good chunk of time researching the best options for me. Overall it's been a ton of fun charging through the trees and deeper powder. The lightweight feel of this splitboard has been confidence inspiring while skinning uphill since its not difficult to maneuver. I use Spark's splitboard bindings and the combo of both has been perfect for me. The only real downside I found with this board traversing downhill in shaded trees that were extremely icy, the grip wasn't the best and I feel a board with magne-traction would've delivered a bit better edge hold. Overall I give the Hometown Hero 8.5/10 rating and I can't wait to have more touring days with it next season.

Ideal for
  • The Hometown Hero is the split version of Burton's iconic freeride snowboard. This splitboard is meant for touring the backcountry, skinning up and riding down.
  • Incredible for off-piste snowboarding and camber dominant for more responsiveness while carving.
  • Riders looking for a lightweight package to take into the backcountry.
Not ideal for
  • The grip on hardpack wasn't the best with this splitboard.
  • This splitboard will not pair with Union Explorer bindings.

The Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Splitboard is the ultimate backcountry companion for those who seek adventure in mixed conditions and unexpected terrain. This board is designed to handle any challenge you throw at it, with a directional shape and taper that keep it agile in powder. The Split Channel mounting system ensures smooth transitions, making this board perfect for floating through open powder stashes or working through variable conditions.

Key Features:

  • Directional Shape: The Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Splitboard features a directional shape that enhances its performance in powder and provides stability on hardpack.
  • Tapered Design: The tapered design of this splitboard allows for effortless turns and improved floatation in deep snow.
  • Split Channel Mounting System: This innovative mounting system makes transitioning from touring to riding mode quick and easy.
  • Versatile Performance: Whether you're exploring new terrain or shredding your favorite lines, the Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Splitboard delivers versatile performance that shines bright no matter where you wind up.

Josh helped me figure out exactly what it is that I needed. Ive been a skateboarder for 20+ years and he has helped me transition to snowboarding by guiding me into the direction that most fits a person with heavy skateboarding background. He explained the gear and everything. He listened to my story and helped me define a setup from just that information.

I am truly grateful for the time Daniela spent taking care of my many questions as I decided on equipment for skiing. There are so many measurements to deal with (Daniela mentioned ones I didn’t even know I needed to know) it was frustrating. She held my hand, and I’m confident I have something for my skill level. There are settings I know I will need some pro help on like DIN settings. I’m looking forward to hitting the slopes with my new gear. Thanks Daniela!

Jarom was responsive and understanding. He made sure he understood what I was looking for, and helped explain what he thought would be a good fit. When I approached him with another Ski, he was quick to assure me that it was a good ski, but also why he thought the one he chose would be a better fit. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience

Dave was FANTASTIC!
5 /5
I was in the market for a new snowboard and bindings for the 2024 season. I have had the same set up for about 10 years now and was ready to invest in a solid set up. I filled out the Curated questionnaire and was lucky to land Dave as my Curated expert. I chatted it up with Dave on what I like to do on the mountains and within 20 min I received his recommended line up of boards and bindings. Dave took the time to provide a detailed description for each board/bindings along with a personalize video as well which was so cool! Literally feel like I’m friends with the guy now, ha! I ended up going with the T. Rice Pro with the Union Falcor bindings. PUMPED for the 2024 season to rip it on my new setup! Dave is the man 🤙🏼

Hayden was super helpful
5 /5
I came onto this website not sure what to expect, and I'm walking away with a new pair of skis and bindings that I am confident will work great for me. Hayden was super knowledgable on the many types of skis and helped me with the many many questions I had for him. He was also super fun and light hearted which made my buying experience that much better. I will definitely be recommending Hayden and this website to others looking to buy skis, and will appreciate all he did for me :)

Vince was all around the best
5 /5
Vince and I went back and forth for over a week finding me the perfect gear. He was dedicated to finding me the best deals for my needs, and he was always great with giving me multiple recommendations. When things I wanted went out of stock, or when my original boots didn't fit, he made sure to find me an equally amazing product. I felt cared for and valued as a shopper, and what is the best in my book, is that it was all so humanized as I NEVER felt like I was being pressured into buying anything, which so many retailers do. This guy knows what he is talking about and will make sure you feel confident in your gear purchases!
