Washington Splitboarders; is why don't we form a group? Is there already one? I'm new to the area and splitboarding and really looking to get involved socially to make sure we all have viable partners when the conditions are right (and our schedules). Does anybody agree that it would be helpful to form a group here or start our own page? If you've been splitboarding this scene for a long time; imagine you moved to a new mountain; would you want to meet as many spliters as you could right away and get shown the good spots? OK then. I've never started a page on my own but I'm willing to learn if that is what is needed. :thumpsup:

Sounds like a good idea. I found an easy way to meet people is to just go to the local spots and talk to others that are touring, if you can hang with them up and down, they'll be willing to exchange info. People out here get after it, and its a pretty tight knit community. Most of the hard cores know each other. turns all year is a good local website to link up with people as well.

Tresnow, Im a little confused. Isn't a group what we have going here? Or did you mean a group similar to the Mountaineers except with for splitters / alpine tourers? I could definitely be down to get something like that going. I have enough web design experience to I need a lot more to make a reasonable web page haha.

If we could get enough people in, we could start up a non profit and try to hire in some instructors for Avy classes, pitch ourdoor gear manufacturers to give up the pro deal, etc. What can I say, I dream big :drool:

Thoughts?

I'm likely going up to Stevens early tomorrow as well. Can anybody carpool me in the morning from Index Cafe on HWY 2?

Heather Ridge was rideable today. Any interest in going up tomorrow morning before it rains?

Were you over out on Heather? Looked decent up top, but the runouts near the bottom looked kinda sketchy on the Hwy 2 side.

I did a quick inbounds mission to the top of Hogs yesterday and back on the road by 10:30. Fun quick trip, first time on my split. I could get used to this, haha.
