No, Yes. I have pack, shovel, transceiver, probe, ice ax. I have quite a bit of "unofficial training." I've gone up numerous times with people that are instructors, read a lot of books, and done a lot of practice, just haven't taken the course.
Snowboarding... expert level. backcountry, intermediate.

I want to get more into backcountry. I got into it when I lived at Mammoth Mountain, CA 05-08. Love the backcountry, preferably the long hikes and epic runs, instead of lapping.
Amazing group, great people! Some can actually keep up with snowboarders too! ;)
