i'm in seattle and am new to not only splitboarding but snowboarding in general. i've been riding the lifts and have had one day in the deeper stuff where i was sort of getting it. i'm still too slow to go out with my ski buds, but would like to get into the bc with the board. if you're thinking of a tour that would be good for a beginner (not too many trees, etc.) give me a holler. something like moonlight bowl near steven's pass would be ideal.
