Looking for back/slack country partners...
New to this board - thought I'd give it a try.
Wondering if there are any fellow Vancouver, BC - area riders out there that are looking for back-country companions. I'd like to think that I'm a fairly advanced rider, but have limited experience in the back-country. I also have no shortage of friends who love riding in-bounds, but basically none of them are interested in the back-country.
I'm planning on taking the AST-1 course early in the season (the one offered on Seymour), and will be picking up all the gear I need (that is of course if I can find some partners!).
I plan on doing mostly slack-country around Seymour and Baker this year. I have a season's pass at Seymour, and get out to Baker quite a bit. I ride Whistler a bit too. Planning on doing more BC-interior riding as well. I will pretty much be limited to boot-packing and snow-shoeing this year (no split board).
I'm in pretty good shape, and consider my riding style to be "all-rounded" (pow, glades, steeps, booters, park - love it all).
So, are there any rad peeps out there with the right training and gear who want to go play in the snow?
