Top 5 Women’s Splitboards
The Greek origin of the word “Stratos” means army- and the Jone’s 2024 award winning Stratos splitboard is just that. Whether you’re chasing pow to perfect your backcountry freestyle game or embarking on your next uphill ascent in the early, icy hours of the morning, the Stratos will not retreat in difficult conditions.
Winning the most versatile splitboard award, women ready to turn their split boarding up a notch would benefit from this lively and hard charging design. Although this is a mid-stiff board, the 3D contour base 3.0 highlights a 7mm spoon bevel at the nose and tail, making us rave over the effortless and speedy turn initiations. The directional, tapered shape generates force while simultaneously giving you the ultimate control for surfing, jumping, and slashing.
Jones has two great perks on top of their sustainable production process; first, each board comes tuned and ready to ride. Second, all you have to do is mount your bindings, put on skins, and you’re ready to rip. To help you get outside faster, each splitboard can be fitted with pre-cut skins that match the edge contours. Having pre-cut skins is a game changer; it’s like preparing for battle. You wouldn’t want your army suited up in ill-fitting armor. Instead, dress the Stratos Split with the tailor made skins for gateway performance.
The Jones Stratos splitboard is a tactical machine ready to go further and progress each rider to perform better.

We all know a seeker- a friend, family member, or dare we admit the reflection we see looking back at us in the mirror. Inevitably, we are all powder seekers after our first taste, and every seeker deserves a burly, yet light splitboard built to pursue their deepest days.
The Weston Women’s Seeker splitboard is an all mountain powder board created for endless turns and fast riding in open terrain, perfect for backcountry beginners and intermediates. What makes this ride float with precision is the camber dominant design. Weston utilized camber underfoot, increasing stability at high speeds, a long reverse camber nose for slicing through feet of freshies or variable conditions, and a 40mm setback stance to aid in maintaining edge control.
Weston continues to create high quality boards that are durable yet affordable. Using 100% poplar wood composition, strong ABS sidewalls, and black sintered bases, you’ll be stealthy and cost-effective if tending to any future core-shots. You can find this board in a 149cm or 153cm, with pre-cut skins created by Weston for an ideal fit.
All in all, the Weston women’s Seeker splitboard will help new riders get in tune with the way of the backcountry while helping them progress in all types of snowpack.
Sizes: 149cm, 153cm
Handmade in Utah, the Voile women’s Revelator splitboard is here to transcend the quality of your current quiver. Being ultralight and the longest standing splitboard in the Voile line-up, this all-mountain, early rise camber board will take your level of riding from contained to berserk.
Early rise camber makes this board wide at the nose to keep you cruising on top of the pow, extremely balanced underfoot so you can edge at high velocity, and a flat, hard tail for reliability over chunder. Common among this overall splitboard line up is an anti-ice top sheet layer, helping wet and heavy snow slide off. Two carbon-weave components stiffen the flex while a Paulownia wood core maintains its levity, especially important for the uphill adventure.
The Voile channel puck binding system is extremely sweet- in a matter of moments you can adjust the angles on both the toe or heel. This quick binding adjustment system will help you ride exactly how you like no matter what terrain you find yourself in. This splitboard varies in dimensions at the waist in both the 149cm and 154cm in order to maintain a consistent ride.
If you’re looking for an ally in steep and long backcountry endeavors, take a chance on the Voile women’s Revelator splitboard. Its colorful and mountainous top sheet graphic will induce revelations on where to adventure next.

We (clap) love (clap) women (clap) owned and operated (clap) companies! Especially women in the extreme sport industry. Creating snowy waves and changing the social norm is what Coalition, and their Sojourner Splitboard is all about.
I’ll be the first to address this- the Sojourner 100% dominates and takes home the best top sheet artwork in this line up (by Christina Armetta). On the underside a completely black, 7500 sintered base equally accelerates you up and down the mountain. Having the design of a scooped nose, offset stance, and swallow tail isn’t only sassy, but it also helps you stick with a familiar size splitboard compared to your resort daily driver.
Coalition’s camber profile includes a nose rocker of 306cm, a rise of 45mm, and tail rocker at 287cm with a rise of 15mm, allowing you to hover above the snow on the deepest of days, preventing you from a tragic nose dive. The narrow waist ensures your maneuverability uphill is seamless, and FSC certified bamboo core enhances the boards swift response. This board ultimately serves you with a playful yet strong, lightweight and functional experience.
Find the perfect dimensions for your body type with their 143cm, 148cm, or 154cm options. As a smaller human at roughly ~ 5’2”, I’ve found that a splitboard that is similar to my resort board gives me a boost of assurance, and I always feel more inclined to get sendy vs on a longer board I have less control of.
This board is on her best behavior in the trees, on long and fast lines, and will be superior over chunddery conditions you may meet along the way to the G-spot. It’s time to grab your rowdiest gal pals and set off on your next big journey with Coalitions Sojourner Splitboard.

The Pallas Women’s Epiphany Splitboard won Editors Choice by Backcountry Magazine in 2020-2021 Gear Guide, and for good reason. When looking for a splitboard, regardless if it’s your first or your fifth, it’s important to find a board that can develop alongside your skill set. A board that will readily respond how you need it to when you need it to is crucial, especially when you muster the courage to rip a steep couloir or practice your backcountry freestyle skills.
The Epiphany splitboard is the only split in this line up with a blunt nose, supporting each rider in defying whatever conditions lay before them. I find the following tapered nose to tail cut efficient for float, edge transitions, and the camber underfoot a standard to create cohesion between split and snow on less than ideal conditions.
Their Backcountry Basics Construction decorates each splitboard with a textured top sheet to shed snow, bright bases, flat touring camber that secures you to the skin track, the option to slightly setback your binding stance, and Spark hardware. Board length options come in 147cm, 151cm, and 155cm.
The Pallas Women’s Epiphany splitboard is an all mountain, directional board that isn’t afraid to land hard or ride switch. This board is a medium flex, giving you a solid support system that isn’t afraid to be playful on your way down. If you’re looking for a splitboard to serve you for years down the road as you grow, the Epiphany will be your knight in shining armor.
