resort riding is beat! IMO, save money next yr and splitboard or buy a sled.
I found some so-so Back Country 101 posts, but most are mum on the snowshoe thing. Sleds are an idea, I'd like to do more of it myself. Obviously starting small and finding easy spots to work out the details and gain experience.
