Hey guys,
Just got my new JJ solution setup w/spark blaze, anyone up for some turns in the next few days??


I'm looking to get some turns next weekend... But I'm new, so I'm not going to be all that fast on the up.

Still thinking about where to go. I was talking to a buddy and he said the rockies snowpack is faceted badly right now, so we might need to head further west.

Keeping an eye on http://www.avalanche.ca for now.

I'd like to head out, but I HAVE to be back on Saturday night, so it's still up in the air for me.

I'm just getting my feet wet with splitting and back country boarding as well. Been resort boarding for 10+ years and I just got AST1 today.

I'm probably going to be weak on the skinning part but the rest I should be able to keep my own.

If you've got room for one more, let me know! I to start collecting some millage.

Oh I forgot to ask, I can't afford to pickup a splitboard yet, does anyone know if and where one can be rented in the Calgary area?

scottnfld and I are planning to head this weekend, not sure where yet. So far we have thrown out a few places. Banff area, Bow Summit or Chester lake at Peter Lougheed Provincial park.

Unfortunately for me I'm still splitless so I will be boot packin' it.

Any other takers from Calgary?

This is probably a little late to enquire, posted particulars previously. But anyone up for the classic wapta traverse next week? We are hittin peyto on Wed Feb 9th and hitting the highway Sun Feb 13th.

Just me splittin and a 2 planker. We are both versed in Avy and Crevase techniques, both moderate paced for endurance, we are planning on summiting Rhonda north and olive if time and energy permits. we have a rope and all hardware, you would need harness, avy gear and 5 days of BC stuff. We have phenominal dehydrated home cooking goods for the trip to divy up.

AS WELL, ANYONE INTERESTED IN BOW TO YOHO TRAVERSE LATE MARCH/EARLY APRIL, WED - SUN

FYI I boarded down Rhonda south in December, first track, and holy shit was it ever awesome. floated down with perfect powder depth and great slope angle. Massive long floating turns back to the glacier, probably my favorite run of all time, Looking forward to the ride down Rhonda north.

Let me know, thanks,
Marc

Anyone up for something on Saturday or Sunday? Possibly from the summits and icefields book? I am all about the summits and a long ride down, but am open to other suggestions.
