Hey there !! I'm Jonny and i live in Kelowna. I'm looking for splitboarding partners in the interior of British Columbia. I'm in my late twenties and i've been snowboarding for almost 20 years. I have my a.s.t. level 1 and all my avy gear and i'm thinking about getting my level 2 this coming winter. I'm new to splitboarding but i did spend a lot of time in the backcountry only on snowshoes, about time i make the transition to a split lol. I used to ski so i'm sure i'll pick it up pretty quick. Places i'm hoping to ride this year: Rogers & Kootenay pass, Revelstoke, Rossland, Nelson, Squamish, Mt Baker, Blue River,Coquihalla and in the Okanagan. I'm also couch surfer friendly so if you're coming my way you're more than welcome to crash on my couch. I'm an amateur photographer and usually bring my dslr with me so you can expect a couple nice shots in return. PM me for more details. Cheers

Jonny

Hey Johnny, I am in Kamloops. This is going to be my first year on a split but will have a number of touring days and my ski operators Avalanche 1 course by mid January. I am at Thompson Rivers University in the Adventure Guide Diploma program, so I will have lots of days on my split by the end of the season, but would love to get out with different people in different areas.

Made the move to Rossland this year and likely to be splitting most of my time between the local terrain & Kootenay Pass, as well as the odd trip further north to Revy/Rogers/Golden (pondering an early season mission up that way anyways...).

I'm in Kelowna here as well. Make a couple of trips up to Rogers Pass, Malakwa and Rossland each year. Got a.s.t 1 and plenty of gear. Willing to venture around. Let me know if you need a sidekick.

If anyone in the Kelowna area needs a trip partner for weekend missions I'd be glad to join. I no longer have 4x4 access to Malakwa or similar areas. Strong rider, I have all my gear, fair amount of experience. Willing to pitch for gas. Let me know.

Hey, I am in Kamloops and always looking for more splitboard partners to hit rogers pass, duffy lk, Coq, or where ever.
Was planning on going to Revy/Rogers this weekend but my ride bailed so I am SOL right now.
