    Great to hear Wyo!

    I hope I can make it this year.

    Scrubfest is the longest running splitboard event I know of, we’re thankful and you should be proud! :thatrocks:

    Would it be helpful if I created a subforum in the events forum for everything Scrubfest related? 🙂

    #608029

    BCRider,
    We would be honored if you were able to make it out again. We have some very positive changes that really should make the event sweet. Thank you for the offer on the subforum…it would be very helpful. I would also like to thank you personally for all that you have done splitboard related. Really, none of this would have been possible without splitboard.com. Thank you.
    WSR

    It’s all good bro!

    Next time just please make sure I know you’re headed to French Spy Bowl. 😉

    And you deserve the credit for these cool ScrubFest events! For without YOU they wouldn’t be possible. :thatrocks:

    I’ve got a funny scrubfest story.

    So I have to travel quite a bit for work and like most of us would, I always try to incorporate mountain biking and splitting into my itenerary. On this particular trip last year I happened to be in the Bay Area for two days and managed to get both mtb and splitting in. So I’m walking into this really nice hotel with all of my gear (bike, board, boots, packs, helments, etc) and find out I’m on the 30th floor or something like that. I cram into the elevator and am feeling a little out of sorts for being so messy and shit. The door shuts and as we’re riding up and this really nice older lady looks at me and says “so, what exactly do you do at a scrubfest? I look down and notice I’m wearing my t-shirt and respond “oh, it’s a snowboarding festival in Wyoming”. Lady “Do you ride horses while you snowboard”. Eco “No, no, ya know, Wyoming is called the cowboy state..horses. get it”. Lady “So what’s it have to do with scrubs”. Eco Oh, we’re mostly broke snowboarders, kinda like that one R&B song by..(I struggled for the artist’s name), well you know, mostly just broke and kinda dirty.” Just then the elevator gets to my floor and I roll my bike board and other shit out of the elevator. “Have a good night”. “You too”

    If I am successful in making friends with the local splitters in my new digs here in Bozeman I will be carpooling down to Scrubfest this winter. I’ve seen on Craigslist that you can post singles ads for Men-seeking-women, Women-seeking-men, Men-seeking-men, and Women-seeking-women. I didn’t see anyplace on there to post for Dirtbag-seeking-dirtbag. Hmm…

    So what terrain usually gets ridden at Scrubfest? I’ve been researching Togwotee and it looks like headwall Wes of Brooks Lake is chock full of couloirs some of which I think I recognize from Scrubfest photos. Sublette, Breccia, Two Ocean?

    Samh-Only the best terrain gets ridden on Togwotee (conditions dependent of course)…word has it we may have a few sleds for some tow-in access to terrain that would make your jaw drop. I don’t like spewing names over the internet and giving away alllll the goodies. Come on out and I can promise you will not be disappointed.

    I thought about that after I posed the question and also figured as much after going through all the other Scrubfest threads and not finding any real hard data on what got ridden. I am definitely coming down there for the ’09 fest and am looking forward to it!

    Steve-I am super stoked that you are coming back for more! This is what this festival is all about! I love seeing the California posse represent! Looks like there will be quite a crowd from the Best Coast. I am really looking forward to this year!

    Please do bring your tele-skiing hubby. This event is for everyone who rides or skis the backcountry.

    You’re trying to get the BC ladies to make the event, then you put them in their own touring group?? :scratch:

    Ha. Hey I totally understand the thinking, but maybe I should offer to go out with all the chicas and leave you scrubs to your bro fest. 😆

    PN and I would love to make it out. Need to put it on the calander and get the time off, then we’d be good to go.

    How does stuff get so twizted? Will and I thought it would be nice for the ladies to have a tour or two of their own for girl power. I have two, maybe three local gals who want to get together with other girls and not deal with a bunch of testosterone every single day.

    Girls are not required to ride with girls. I just wanted to make our female counterparts feel comfortable, welcome, and shown a little love. Just tryin’ to accomodate everyone and be respectful. I know that Babes in the Backcountry is a big hit around these parts and that was what we were thinking for format. It is just another option and I want everyone to have fun. It doesn’t mean we even have to do it that way. Sorry to offend you.??????? 😯

    No offense taken. Thanks for the PM, Wyo.

    More options and flexibility is the way to go and it won’t turn off a bunch of gals who want to go, but are hesitant because of the male ego shit.

    …and I bet some of the gals ride just as hard.

    Just don’t change the name to potpourii fest. 😆 :drinks:
