Looking for people in Colorado to enjoy the backcountry with. I have been riding in the BC for three seasons, migrating from skiing several years ago due to a knee injury. I live in Boulder so I am typically in RMNP or in the Indian Peaks area - although I go to different areas if the snow is right. I have Level One AIARE and will be taking Level Two this year.
Always looking for other people to enjoy the BC with. I also like to tackle the 14ers once the snow consolidates in the spring. I am a pretty intermediate rider. I have some weekdays and weekends free, and my schedule is somewhat flex.
Would also be cool to get some people to practice with beacons, moonlight ride, etc.

I saw your post and I am actually in the process of looking for people to go on a splitboarding trip with me in Aspen. The date of departure will be January 1st 2013, weather permitting. The trip will be essentially backpacking the four pass loop around the 14er, maroon bells. If your interested let me know and we can collaborate and make this happen! Let me know what you think!
Also, I am down to do anything else if you have a trip planned.

I'm always up to get away from Denver on the weekends and occasional weekdays. Been riding resort/sidecountry for ~16 years, spent some time in Summit CO and Mammoth CA a couple years back. New to splitboarding but have been out a few times this year, in decent shape and really enjoying earning my turns.
Been up to Geneva Basin and Jones Pass with a buddy that has been splitting for a few years now and has avy training, so been learning from him. Want to meet others, learn more and not be stuck with only going when my buddy can. I have beacon/probe/shovel/ava lung but no avy1. I taken advantage of free workshops through Friends of Berthoud Pass, and from working at resorts closely with patrollers I'm just generally cautious in the BC. Looking into taking avy1 soon.
