I'm a split newbee located in Fresno CA, looking for other interested splitboarders in cent. California. A little bit about me... I did my first backcountry trip this last summer up Mt. Shasta (boot pack with crampons and a solid board). A friend of mine who is an experienced mountaineer and backcountry skier took me up. I recently invested in my first split. I am currently doing some self educated avalanche safety reading and will, hopefully, soon be heading out to get an "in the field" avalanche safety class. I am also currently a Firefighter and practicing EMT. I would like to try to get a group of local spliters together and form a list. Maybe sit down over a cup of coffee and get to know each other. Figure out each others intentions, skill level and avalanche safety level. If this is something you would be interested in let me know and I will try to work out a time and place to meet sometime over the next couple of months. I'm looking forward to meeting others who are interested.
