you live in San Jose i see.. we woulda been neighbors..

option3: move closer makes it that much more affordable to go alot more.
yeah, this weekend will be me first weekend in San Jose. I've been looking for work around there, but nothing yet.

Looking at a few sites, it looks like you can get special snowshoes that will "take" what they are calling soft boots (aka normal snowboarding boots)

There is a place that will also train you on avy conditions and back country day hikes. sounds like a decent way for me to get some experience to teach my friends. I also have an old Forum raider 163w that I might carve up for a splitboard if I don't sell it

Can you use soft boots on a split board?
