backcountry

“I have been a professional snowboarder for 20 years. I started out as a park and pipe rider and evolved into a backcountry rider over time. I spend most of my time in the backcountry these days and have had some of the best times of my life riding powder.

 To be honest my pursuit of pow hasn’t been all fun and games, I’ve had to endure a lot of harsh situations, extreme cold, frostbite, I’ve been lost overnight in wilderness with no food, water or shelter and have lived my worst nightmare suffering the painful loss of a few friends.

I’m not trying to scare you but I think it’s important to understand the risks of backcountry riding and how to go about it as safely as possible. The mountains must be treated with respect and I hope to give you some insight of how to be more prepared in the mountains. This tour is set up as a casual “shop talk” designed to bring basic awareness to riders who are new to the backcountry and want to learn how to do it safely.”

’Riding the line is the easy part, knowing when it’s good and safe to ride is the hard part.’

Hope to see you there!”
