A group for Nor Cal backcountry snowboarders to organize trips, discuss conditions, gear, and techniques. Experienced riders are encouraged to share knowledge with people getting into the backcountry, and "newbies" are encouraged to ask questions. Get out of the resorts and earn your turns!
I'm looking for partners and terrain. Above 9000 ft apparently. 20-30 degree, ridge lines + trees? Lee ward / East to North facing, good access by car, safe approach from up mountain run outs. Any ideas? Other zones? I have a sprinter camper van, winter ready, fitness, and a ntn tele set up. Willing to be creative and flexible. Sun-? I'm open.
The pics streaming in of white stuff in the mountains is causing urges to drop everything and run up there. I'm getting so excited about backcountry possibilities! Anyone want to go play around up there? Snowshoe/ hike/ tour/ sledding/ play with beacons/ make snow angels? Winter camp, cheap motel, or whatever works for accommodations. Tomorrow??!! Or sometime after thanksgiving before Christmas?
