• Hey All,

    Thought I would give you guys a heads up that due to the dismal winter across the west we are looking to move some inventory at a reduced rate. Prices should start dropping on the site sometime towards the end of the month, but if you have your eye on something shoot me an email at dgates@backcountry.com and I can get you a quote.

    Hope…[Read more]

    Found my GoPro. Put together a few clips from Revy last year. Nothing super inspiring, but made me smile to look back on a few days of shredding with a killer crew:
    Karkis
    Visionsofchance
    Whistler Maverick

  • As most of you know I have been a hardboot convert for the better part of the last decade. I’m convinced it’s the finest way to enjoy a day of splitboarding. One of the biggest obstacles for making the switch is the price of the boots. To help out with this, if you are looking at picking up a pair of hardboots drop me a line at…[Read more]

  • Sick ride Doug! Looks rad.

    What a month that was!
    Hope everyone at least got out for a rip or two during that last storm cycle.

    Saturday Dave, Logan and I rode stairs. Stairs has been on my list since day one. Mclean’s descriptions scared the shit out of me and bushwhacking up in the summers over the years showed many years of winter carnage.…[Read more]

  • Nice Nic and Dave!
    I haven’t been out for a bit due to getting sick and being slammed with work.
    Finally got my computer kind of fixed and was able to look at some photos I snapped the other day.

    Little huck that a face planted off of

    Off to Canada, stay safe boys.

  • That’s rad Dave!

  • I agree with all of your thoughts Dave. Pretty spooked to see something that big go on a similar aspect and elevation to what we rode. I really wish I had a photo to show the extreme pillowing at the top of the Birthday Chutes. The connectivity of the slide is really, really spooky and echoes the really long connected slide at the base of White…[Read more]

  • Yesterday was all time. Mar123 is the man for putting up with me bonking after one run and patiently waiting for me to drag my ass up Red Baldy. White Pine was about as empty as I have ever seen it.

    Felt good to put in a skin track on a classic shot in the Wasatch on a bluebird day. The loose snow, graupel, windboard interface was easier to boot…[Read more]

  • awesome work boys!

    Can’t wait to link up with you Snurfer.

    It’s been a great season so far. I’ll spare any observations for now as it seems to be covered. Here is some photo stoke from the past two weeks

    Silver Fork from Day 1 at Solitude

    So fucking good in West Bowl, just before Mar123 dropped a monster powder bomb

    Good lookin out…[Read more]

  • This website really sucks. It deletes my post half of the time. so here is a condensed version of what I originally posted.
    East Ridge of Timp 4/6
    amazing visuals and ascent. Descent was whatever.

    Really bummed to hear Merle Haggard passed away when I got back to the car that afternoon.

    I went up Little Pine yesterday and had a horrific…[Read more]

  • awesome thoughts guys. I have been trying to change it up and ride in new areas this year. It’s funny how often I(we) complain about how small the wasatch is, but after close to a decade I still have a good chunk of it to explore. And that is just in the Central Wasatch.

    I’m never upset that I went touring after I go, what I’m losing is the…[Read more]

  • I’ve always enjoyed participating in the fringes and not the mainstream. Grew up as a skateboard/punk rock kid, started splitboarding to get away from the bro-brah scene all my friends were in. That scene is now in the backcountry, working at backcountry.com all I hear is asshats talking about their “sick-gnar tours”. It’s the last thing I want…[Read more]

  • some nausea inducing video from nebo and coal pit 2. Again the video is too wide so just click the title to watch.

  • A few weekends ago Mar123 and I ticked off a line I have been wanting to do since moving to Utah.
    Dave is a fucking animal. Please don’t ever get hardboots, I will not be able to catch up with you.
    God awful fog prolonged a sleepy 5am drive south. A quick ascent up the road gave way to a never ending treadmill to the summit.

    Dave in the lead…[Read more]

  • Nice Whitepine!

    Here are some photos of our foray up Lone Peak/Bighorn. I have stared at those faces since I moved to Utah and always wanted to put a track down them. So lucky to get it in those conditions. A season’s worth of terrain over there.

    First view of our objective

    After some gorgeous alpine…[Read more]

  • thanks guys. not sure why the video is such a weird size. just another reason I miss the old forum. We got lucky this weekend for sure.

  • Dave’s photos were way better than mine. Which sucks considering I carried my stupid DSLR around all day.

    Nice morning skinning up Neffs

    Really fun to tick off a line that everyone in the valley stares out day in and day out.

    Memorial #2 was deep

    Memorial #1 was also epic

  • Yeah Doug!!

    awesome photos. that throw back/reunion photo is awesome.
    good news is most of the dumbfucks still haven’t figured out where the good skiing is there.
