What's up everyone! Wanted to get the word out to any Seattle or eastern Wa folks about a free clinic we have coming up on November 17th.

Our friends at Sahaptin Outfitters in cle elum have teamed up (let us use their nice big shop and projection screen) to bring you Splitboard 101: An Introduction to Splitboarding!

In this clinic we will discuss the basics of splitting, gear selection, backcounty essentials, very basic avalanche/safety (hoping to line up a guest speaker), and show off some of the newest splitboard gear for this season! Think of this like a pre-season gathering of beginning splitters to meet up and bs about riding for a couple hours while checking out some badass new gear haha!

I'll post up some more info when I get to a computer, hope to meet a lot of new faces!

-Brendon @ Chair 2

Bumping this back up, only a week out! We will have all the 12/13 gear from Spark R&D and are hoping our Jones gear shows up before sat!

Also if anyone needs accomodations just shoot me a pm, we have a nice hotel in Easton (10 min from where the clinic is) that we vw get special deals for folks who attend. There is also a couple hotels in Cle Elum as well.

Would be stoked to see you bob! No beer at the clinic but the saloon is on the way home :)

We werent able to line up a guest speaker for the avalanche portion of the discussion but we are still on track for a great event. Looking like roughly 20 people so this should be a lot of fun!

Had a lot of people not make the journey but we still had a great turnout for our first ever Splitboard 101! Ended up being a great discusssion that lasted almost 2hrs. Was awesome to meet everyone and get some new splitboarders educated.

Here are a few photos from the night
