Hallo everyone,
I just arrived in Vancouver a week ago on my journey through British Columbia. I have three month to travel this beautiful country and I hope I have a lot of opportunities to get into the mountains and make some great powder turns.Today I bought my companion for the next - hopeflully years - a Prior Khyber :D
I will start my trip in Revelstoke this Monday. Than I want to travel around the powder Highway (Golden, Banff, Fernie, Nelson, Vernon) (about 6 weeks) before I hit back to Vancouver and maybe travel around Vancouver Island. Before I leave in the end of March I thought about hitting up to Prince George, Smither, Prince Rupert and mybe to Whitehorse. But my plans depend on the people I meet and I can write with and I think that they gone change a lot ;-)
I am traveling alone and I would be happy to meet some people alonge the way and to go on some tracks with them. I am new to splitboarding but I have over 15 years of Snowboard experience and good backcoutry riding skills as well as some avalanche experience and education trough I also do high altiude tours. But because I think the snowconditions here are a lot different to what I know in germany I also wanna do a AST course, unfortunately I didn´t finde a spot in one yet.
So if you would like to join me on my trip or have time to show me some tracks in your region I would be more than happy to get in contact and share some splitboarding and culture.
Oh and by the way, I´m writing about my journey on a blog, where I also want to prompte Splitboarding in germany because most people switch back to skies when they wanna hit the backcountry.

Hey,
anybody around Revelstoke wanna go to Rogers Pass the next days, Wednesday, Thoursday or Friday? The snow may be not the best, but I think it's worth going out there just for the view :D and the avalanche situation is quite okay right now. So if you hook up for a trip, just give me a text 604 505 3409
