Forums Split Partners Wanted Tahoe/Bay Area/Sac newb splitters – skills clinic on 4/15? Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) Author Posts April 6, 2012 at 8:53 pm #576774 SchralphMacchio 474 Posts Hey splitters, I’m doing a little bc split/skiing skills clinic for my outdoors club, aimed toward skiers/splitters who are post-AIARE 1 (and other training) and have gotten all the gear, but maybe only been out once-to-a-few times and are still pretty green to the activity. Gonna be around the SLT or Carson Pass area on Sunday 4/15. I didn’t get as many people in my outdoors club to sign up (actually, only 1 so far, whereas last year I had a lot more) and I have room to spare. I know it’s kind of last minute. Priority is still going to my outdoors club right now, and I don’t want to take out too many people because big groups are a junkshow – but I think have room for a few people. PM me for more info. This is not a guided instruction/tour … just an opportunity to go out and work on some tips & tricks, pick my brain, discuss things as a group/collaborative learning experience etc. You are required to provide your own gear and transportation, though I may have room in my car from SLT to Carson Pass. Extreme storm or rain will cancel. If you need a gear list, PM me and I can send you things that you should already have. More info about me I’m 32, a reasonably solid snowboarder and a barely competent skier. The past few seasons I averaged about 40-50 days of skiing and boarding per year, generally about half in the backcountry. I primarily splitboard in the backcountry but I also own Dynafit ski-touring gear as well. I have about 75 days of BC touring experience, mostly in the Tahoe/Carson Pass area but I have toured many CA regions as far south as Independence and as far north as Mt. Shasta – primarily day tours. I do not do committing ski-mountaineering lines or big sufferfest tours, but I am confident in steep expert-level terrain in the BC. I also have AIARE level 1 and 16-hour WFA training. April 7, 2012 at 3:45 pm #654875 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Do we have to use one pole if we sign up?

Zing! You’re actually only allowed to use one pole after demonstrating proficiency with two whippets in hand while snowboarding. Anyways, the group is looking like it’s up to 5 now … good size, but I can take 1, maybe 2 more. Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
