Feasting your eyes upon Mount Baker's easy to access big mountain terrain will make anyone hungry to sample the local test pieces. It's no surprise some of the best free riders come out of the Mount Baker area. If you are looking to experience the same terrain that Craig Kelley and Lucas Debari grew up on look no further. 

In the Advanced Splitboarding 2 Day we will cultivate a repeatable approach, gradually build confidence, and execute tours that will satiate your pow riding dreams. Lines like Little AK, Diamond Trees, and the Stoneman Couloir are examples of the terrain we seek out. 

While not the primary focus of the course rope skills including belayed riding and rappels maybe introduced. This course compliments the Splitboard Mountaineering 4 Day course.

This co branded course with Weston Backcountry is led by guide Team Member Jere Burrell.
