I just moved to Whistler and got my first splitboard (a Khyber with Magnetos) and I’m looking to meet some splitboarders.

I’m 26, I ride 50+ days a year normally and more now that I’m living in Whistler. I consider myself an advanced/expert rider, charging double blacks with confidence, I love technical terrain, trees, steeps, small cliffs, anything featury and fun.

I already have all my backcountry gear and level 2 Red Cross first aid certification. I’ll be getting my ast-1 certification at the start of the season but have been reading and learning about safety for a long time. I have some experience hiking slackcountry around Whistler and Revelstoke already. I’m looking for some friends to make safe progression into the backcountry with and have lot of fun. I’m mostly interested in getting to know the area surround the resort, including backcountry in Pemby and Squamish, but am up for some trips to the interior and Baker throughout the season.

I’d love to meet up and grab some beers before the season starts, reply here or PM me if you want to meet up. First rounds on me!

Welcome :thumbsup:

I live I'm Squamish and get out quite a lot. I've got a pass at Whistler and am going to have a sled this season so I can get my splitboard out even further. This is my 3rd season splitting, so I know a few spots around here but definitely only about 0.5%.

I'm down to tour out of the resort anytime (it's safe), and tour a lot in Squamish and the Duffey. Lets stay in touch and link up. I am heading to Prior this week sometime to get a new split made, maybe we can grab a beer when I'm up there.

Cheers

Hey dudes, I'll be spending my second season in Squampton myself, have a sled, and looking to get out splitting as much as possible. Have a fairly flexible schedule (lots of "sick days" :lol: ), so can get out mid-week.

Would be happy to share contact info and meet up for a beer.

Looks like we may even have some potential for early season conditions coming up pretty quick here!

I've had several PMs since posting here, starting to look like we all need to organize a pre season get together here!

Great idea, I've got more beer than I know what to do with so I can take care of that part of it.

When do you guys all want to get together? I'll volunteer to have us all over at my place since I started this thread, or we could go out, or I can drive to Squamish since most of you live there.
