Hi im Ben 6'2" 180lbs, blue eyes, like long walks on the beach......opps sorry, wrong website.
ive had my split for about a year now, live in squamish, have the avy gear and taken the course. havent been out too much tho but would like to a lot more. mostly been up to elfin lake area and whistler/blackcomb backcountry. if anyones looking to go out riding drop me a line
I went with Sev last weekend to Seymour. Hanus rain crust was everywhere leaving much to be desired. Now I have a serious jones for some powder.
I'd really like to do a day tour Wed or Thursday. I'm thinking musical bumps. I hear that wind did some serious scouring and created hard windslab in alpine, but there is still some goods in the trees.

Clint, or anyone for that matter, are you getting out this weekend Feb 24-25. I am trying to find a trip to go on or I will end up splitting up Syemour on my own. Can be a one day or an overnight. This will be the first trip out since my son was born on Christmas day and I need to take advantage of the opportunity.
Sorry, no plans to get out this weekend. I just got back from 4 days in the Duffy Lake area, and need a couple of days off.
I think Diamond head may also be a good option for you. You can skin to Red Heather warming hut without any avi danger. The mellow slopes past there are nice as well, and low avi risk. But you should really have a partner jsut in case. You may be able to meet/join a group at the warming hut as it gets pretty busy.

I'm looking to meet some new splitboard partners. Most the guys I rode with last season have moved away. I'm up for pretty much anything-day trips, overnighters, peaks, laps, whatever. I also might end up with a job at rogers pass(hopefully) so I'd like to explore that area.

Will be in the greater Vancover area from dec 20-30. Definitely, want to do some bc riding in the Whistler and Pemberton area (up there from 26th to 28th). Looking for parnters, information, suggestions on day trips, or any info on any good guide books. Thanks.
I will on a split and my girl will be on AT skis. Both us have avy equipment, avy education, and bc experience around the Tetons, CO, and NZ.
