Earning Your Turning | KORUA Shapes Hit The Skin Track

The latest instalment from the Swiss carving crew swaps resort pistes for alpine peaks in their new splitboard edit

Powder turns, groomer turns, high speed turns, elbow scraping turns. And now kick turns. KORUA Shapes are back with their latest instalment (and perfectly re-named) Earning Your Turning. After a season spent at home, the Swiss shredders turned their efforts to scoring untouched lines away from the crowds in their splitboards.

From KORUA Shapes

The very first splitboard edition of our Yearning For Turning series, aptly named Earning Your Turning, features a blast of our favorite moments from a travel-free winter we spent at home in Switzerland. With an aim to avoid the crowds we set off on mostly human powered adventures into the back-, slack & sidecountry in search of the best powder, the longest windlips and biggest faces to ride. While our thighs were slowly turning to steel, our souls started to fill with the golden memories of unforgettable views and experiences on the natural features these beautiful surroundings had to offer. Touring season is around the corner, perfect timing to really fuel that stoke. Have fun and be safe!

KORUA Shapes Escalator Split Plus

Best for: Best Unisex Splitboard
PRICE: €999

While the other splitboards in KORUA’s fleet have been brought directly across from the solid lines, the Escalator is their first split-specific shape that’s been built purely for time spent on the skin track. It’s the board that KORUA’s head honcho Nicholas Wolken uses for most of his backcountry objectives – be it a multiday objective deep in the Swiss Alps or a fast and light dawn-til-dusk-day mission.

Selected for the Whitelines 100 – take a closer look at the 2021-2022 KORUA Shapes Escalator Split Plus here
