Hello all...I have been an off and on lurker here for a long time...thought it about time I sign up and say hello.
I am a southern alberta boy, I have been on a snowboard since the late 80's....a lot of that time, especially in the early days was spent in the back country. My first board was a home made board built in shop class and sessioned hard at the local golf course lol...I can recall when going to the local ski hill required me passing a skills test that showed i could turn both ways and stop...and of course had a leash lol. I have always gravitated back towards the back country though, for many of the same reasons as everyone else on here i imagine. I have always been either a boot packer or on snowshoes, but I hope to transition (pun intended) to a splitboard this year and take it to a new level.I have worked in the outdoor/adventure industry for most of my life and currently rep for a motorsports/outdoor clothing company.
well that is a little about me,glad to be here. love learning from all those out there...new and seasoned.
PS. I will be posting a few items in the buy and sell area today looking for some trades.....check it out if you are interested!!
