Forums Split Partners Wanted Partners in California Viewing 9 posts - 1 through 9 (of 9 total) Author Posts August 19, 2005 at 11:53 pm #566758 plark42 13 Posts Hello out there- My girlfriend and I are moving to Davis, CA this fall- I am looking for some partners I could do backcountry with. I have a splitboard and all the gear necessary to travel in the backcountry: beacon, shovel, etc. I am AVY I certified and also a skilled mountaineer (mostly snow). I am just looking for some people who would want to avoid the resorts and hit up the Northern CA backcountry throughout the winter and spring. (and perhaps do some summertime mountaineering). Send me a private message or just post here. Thanks August 20, 2005 at 12:05 am #582553 plark42 13 Posts Don’t be shy!!!

The need for partners is always there when the snow starts flying. August 20, 2005 at 3:01 am #582555 Ecobrad 2068 Posts What’s up, plark. Hold your horses a bit, there’s plenty of No. Cal bc riders who frequent this forum. You won’t have a problem finding people to get out with. Are you going to be a student at UC Davis? They have a world renown outdoor recreation program. Anyways, I’m about 90 miles down the long, flat, hot Valley from you in Merced.

I lived in Colorado for the past 4 years and finding people to do backcountry with was very hard. I guess it was because of Colorado’s notoriously dangerous avy conditions but… it was hard none the less. I will definitely post when the time comes.. My girlfriend will be going to UC Davis part-time.. we are both trying to gain CA residency so that tuition at UC Davis would be cheaper for grad school.

Check out these TR’s to quell the doubts. http://www.splitboard.net/talk/viewtopic.php?t=726 http://www.splitboard.net/talk/viewtopic.php?t=791 California has a vibrant splitboard community, due at least in part to BCRider’s advocacy. Some of us from NV even get in on it. 😉 December 7, 2005 at 12:24 am #582558 CascadeRider 21 Posts Looking over the forum I saw that you are looking for partners in No Cal.
