Been snowboarding 20 years, fairly new to splitting but some experience. Ive been in the mountains all of my life and have the respect they require. Iam looking for serious split partners to hook up with. If you have a lot of experience and dont mind someone like me I'd be stoked. The bottom line is I cant handle resorts unless Iam with my family. Iam eager to learn about the backcountry and splitting as it is the direction Iam heading. I plan on taking an AVY course at Kirkwood in January. So if anyone is out there please let me know. I'd love to find a serious group that wouldn't mind another. So hope to hear from someone..thanks!
