My experience is mostly side country and mild to moderate snowshoeing... Took AIARE 1 a few years back and im a proficent observer/ hobby of weather and snow science on a unprofessional level. just looking to pick some brains, meet some like minded riders... I would like to consistently go up conditions permitting. Just purchased a splitboard but im a seasoned/grizzled vet.. -Ed

I'm moving to Santa Barbara in February (from Alberta) and I've been debating bringing my split with me when I move out there. I'm not sure if I'm going to have a car.
I am sure you can find rides, take the train, etc. You should definitely bring your board! Lot of people carpool from hubs like sacramento, or you could even take the snowbus to meet people from here, and just use the snowbus as a ride out of San Francisco, Sacramento, etc. to Tahoe. There is even some riding as seen by some TR (Trip Reports) here just north of the valley (Los Angeles).

Awesome, thanks for the info.
I guess I should introduce myself: I've been lurking on this forum for a while, and splitboarding for a year. I've been snowboarding on the resort for 4 years and I decided the most fun stuff on the resort involved hiking, so I might as well hike more! I'm a solid rider, I've been to places like Revelstoke and can ride any run there, although it might not be pretty!
I'll keep checking back. Once I move, I'd love to get out and ride and meet some people down in California.
What up I just moved to SB from SLO long time Los padres recreator. Lets ride! East side, west side, Tahoe, whatevers... Let's get some novelty LP runs I've had my eye on some stuff near big Sur that occasionally presents a window. I might be headed out this weekend hit me up.
