Survival Snowboard Breaks Into Skis, Shovel, Wood Saw
This is the Survival Split snowboard built by Signal Snowboards and jam-packed with everything you'd need to survive a night in the wilderness without getting sexed by a Yeti just you can sleep by the fire in his cave. *shivers* Never again.
[The board] separates into three parts to become a pair of skis and a snow shovel to help you dig a snow shelter. Going further they managed to hide a folding saw into the structure, along with a compass, thermometer, fire-starting flint, and a signal board for attracting help. You can even clip the two skis together to make a kind of snow surfboard they call The Snurfer.
Listen: if you're seriously assessing your need for a survival snowboard I'm just gonna go ahead and suggest you NOT venture off the bunny slope just yet. Speaking of -- remember the time I told you I fell 20-feet off a ski-lift into fresh powder? Well that never happened. It was ice and I broke both arms and a leg.

Thanks to kee, who agrees there's only one thing you need to survive a cold winter's night: a lodge with a nice fireplace serving hot cocoa.
