The past few days have been absolutely phenominal around here sunny skies, warm temperatures, great snow and great guests to surf some of the local pow stashes. I don’t often get the opportunity to get out riding with an exclusively splitboarding group, and I must say I had a blast the past few days riding a board for a change. Contrary to popular belief, snowboarding is where my backcountry roots are and if splitboards were around when I made my initial forays into the backcountry instead of snowshoes, I may never have skied powder at all!

As with many areas in the mountain west, our avalanche danger remains elevated. All the more reason to hire a guide for expert terrain selection and stability evaluation. While we’re not exactly ‘steppin out’ around here these days, the riding has been superb. Since you’re probably bringing your avalanche gear to the resort these days anyways, why not get out into the backcountry for some real pow?

Anyways. check out a movie I put together of our great days of backcountry riding with Adam, Greg, Mike and Nick!
