Hey everyone! I have just got a splitboard and I'm looking for people to ride with in the chamonix area.
I've been snowboarding for 7 years and have lived in ski resorts for the last 4 years the last 2 in chamonix. I have alot of off piste experience and but not any real BC country stuff (hike up a mountain pass and ride down the other side). I'm thinking hiking/skinning over the back of the aiguille rouges for example. Just to be clear some people think BC is off piste.
I have alot of alpine climbing experience but only in the summer. So my general mountain skills are good. Just not in the winter. So to make up for that I attended a AIARE level 1 course which was a very good course.
So now I'm looking for people to go riding with. I have alot of time off so I am always looking for partners.
