Default looking to connect w/UT-CO riders for 2012/13

I live in Moab, UT.
Looking to connect with backcountry split-board riders for the 2012/13 season.
Wasatch, Uintah, La Sals, and the Western slope of the Colorado Rockies.

I'm not a seasoned rider (second season bc) but have a good amount of mountain climbing experience.

Lets connect..

I'm planning on taking a trip to the La Sals. If you come up to the Wasatch let me know. I would be down to hook up and get some split action in.

I'm going to join this thread only because I too want to get some back country in this season in the wasatch region. (snowvols) I'm in Ogden, UT and it'll still be a season before I acquire a split but anything accessible but other means I would really like to try and join.

Kara it will be tough unless you can get some snowshoes to borrow or such. I am planning on touring up in the Bountiful area as well. There looks like there is some sick terrain up there. Let me know if you want to get together sometime.

yeah darn. I'll see what options I have. At Snowbasin we have some good back (slack) country lines so I'm starting with that this season. At the least maybe I could meet up and ride a day at Brighton, not that that's back country

Snowbasin has really good slackcountry. It's also very dangerous. The Hells area had a huge slide in it 3-4 years back. Debris pile around 30ft deep. Went right over where everyone rides. Eye opening for sure. The stuff off of Ogden peak is nice too, same dangers though. Pick and choose around there is the moral of the story. I think there is safer and better beginner bc around the Eden valley. Though you'll have to hike for it. There are several spots around Ben Lomond where I would consider the overall danger to be low-moderate with moderate consequence on average. Where as the Snobasin lines are pretty much high danger and high consequence. The Ben Lomond stuff is also reasonable to access with snowshoes. So get yourself a pair. Check around at pawn shops, second hand shops, and such for those. I found a decent pair for the wife for $30 at a local pawn shop around here.

Not saying that the backcountry around Ben Lomond (What is it called North Park?) is completely safe. The stuff on the peak itself can be really sketch, but there is a lot of terrain there to learn on and that limits your exposure to danger. A good thing when you're getting started.

There are tons of places you can get access to with snowshoes in BCC and LCC. I do not know the lines around Ogden as well. I do want to explore up there at some point this winter.

Hopefully we will finally get together this season. Have you been in American Fork Canyon? I know there are tons of super sick lines down there without the traffic you would see in BCC or LCC
