The Art of Splitboarding
Do you love snowboarding but long to ride fresh, untouched snow? Want to explore our local backcountry mountains (and beyond) in the winter and spring with friends, your significant other, or even your dog?
Come down to Mountain Gear to learn about SPLITBOARDING. This short clinic will introduce you to the use of splitboards, the equipment and logistics of backcountry touring, and avalanche safety as it relates to splitboarding. This event is FREE.

Jason Keen will be doing the main presentation and Jason’s wife will also be on hand to lend her perspective from a women’s point of view, as well as being new to splitboarding herself. Afterwards there will be a Q&A and participants will be able to see all the essential gear up close. IPAC representatives will be on hand to answer questions as well and all raffle proceeds benefit IPAC.
