Would you, or anyone you know, be interested in participating in a study about what it is like to snowboard in the backcountry? I'm inviting professional and amateur backcountry snowboarders to be involved in a study I am conducting for my M.A. thesis in Sociology at the University of Calgary.
If you're interested in chatting with me, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org; only people who reply by e-mail can be accepted as participants. Interviews usually take an hour, are confidential, and are conducted over Skype.

what a great thesis project! I'll pass around the info for those not on this forum. Tell us a little bit about yourself as a rider! Welcome to the forum!
Thanks, I appreciate you passing my info around! I'm stoked people are interested in the project.
About myself, I've ridden for over 10 years in-bounds and slackcountry, and just recently picked up backcountry touring, hence my interest for the project. I can charge almost anything from the park to steep and deep, but I definitely want to learn more about the backcountry, and get in better shape for it! I've done my AST-1 and been out about 10 times this year. Just recently picked up a 2011/12 Jones Solution split, and I love it.
If anyone has any questions about the project, feel free to ask!
