Intro to Backcountry Splitboarding

Montana Alpine Guides has partnered with Bozeman Splitfest to bring you our Intro to Backcountry Splitboarding course! 

The course is for resort snowboarders looking to break into backcountry split boarding. We meet at our office to discuss equipment options, contents of our avalanche packs, the avalanche forecast, our route plan, & clothing considerations. We then head out to the slopes and discuss travel methods for uphill touring. Our focus will then be on terrain and snow assessment as well as becoming exposed to riding in variable snow surfaces.

This Intro to Splitboarding Course is perfect to combine with a Level 1 Avalanche Course from Montana Alpine Guides.

*All splitboard trip locations are subject to change according to weather and snowpack conditions.

MINIMUM ENROLLMENT: Sign up individually. Open enrollment group total must reach at least 3 participants for the course to be confirmed. Please contact us with any questions.
