I know my self, Cbalke and some others will be trying to get in as many turns as we can, and always love adding to the posse. Would really love to get out in Socal if it actually snows here again and capture some fun out in the San Gorgonio area. So who’s in? PS if this ridge doesn’t break down by end of month we may all want to consider offing our gear for new Mtn bikes…. Yew! -CS November 10, 2014 at 4:57 am #678196 snowsnowsnow 54 Posts I’m either headed to Tahoe or down to Redlands for winter. If I end up down there I would be all over going to San Gorgonio and anywhere else down there. November 10, 2014 at 5:09 pm #678197 schradec 17 Posts RAD.

March 4, 2015 at 8:50 pm #780920 Stephen Gandee 3 Posts I’m looking for a split crew for SoCal/Eastside? A lifelong snowboarder and surfer just got bitten by the split bug after a few guided backcountry trips in CO. If anyone is planning a San Gorgonio run or Eastside trip please let me know.

That is definitely more convenient but conflicts with my trip to Wasatch. I would definitely like to Hobnob with the SoCal crew on the next outing. Please keep me posted and I’ll keep up on the boards to see the happenings. Thanks for the info. March 9, 2015 at 6:38 am #780985 TEX 2486 Posts Heading North this weekend.

Planning on hitting the crest friday after arriving and the from there open to input. Or if the crest is good just keep lapping it! Come one come all! -CS December 8, 2015 at 7:34 pm #786946 beantown 44 Posts I’m planning to head to mammoth 12/14-12/16 (mon-wed). Was supposed to go with a friend but he got work to do instead. Right now I’m just planning to pack it in to snow camp, got a homemade ski pulk to try out, and tour / ride mellow terrain since I will be alone staying out of avy areas. Anyone want to meet up to ride? I’m thinking probably the duck pass area. January 3, 2016 at 4:10 pm #787851 Shep 525 Posts Hey all, Haven’t posted in probably 6 years… I moved from VT, did some more schooling in Arkansas (snow conditions there suck), and eventually made it out to SoCal last year. I am in the Santa Barbara area now, but try to get to the mountains once a month if I can… (family happened in the meantime. Hoping to get my daughter sliding on snow this winter! 🙂 ) If there is anyone who wants to tour in the San Gabriels, or outside of Mammoth, let me know. I can probably arrange day trips to the LA area more often than the Eastern Sierra. Planning on signing up for the Exum Splitboard Mountaineering course at the end of February also… Thanks, Shep January 3, 2016 at 10:56 pm #787866 HansGLudwig 601 Posts I too am working on getting my li’l grom to slide this year too, @shep Home for me is at the base of the Angeles Crest; as such the San Gabriels are my home range. I’d be happy to your with you when I can. btw. . . NSP is offering an Avy1 class next week. It’s closer than other options. http://splitboard.com/talk/topic/2016-avy-ed-in-los-angeles/ Be sure to bookmark Splitboard.com's Recent Activity page... http://splitboard.com/activity-2/ Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 27 total) 1 2 → avy1eastsideSoCal You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
