Learn the ups and downs of splitboarding from the experts at Weston Backcountry and KMAC. Weston is an award-winning Colorado based backcountry ski and snowboard manufacturer. We have partnered with them to teach 1.5 hour “Splitboard 101” classes free for the public. The course covers what splitboarding is, why we splitboard, choosing your first splitboard and bindings, gear selection/packing list, helpful tricks and tips, as well as a basic trip planning workshop utilizing local avalanche forecasting and online mapping software! We will answer all of your questions about this amazing backcountry sport and get you onto the snow faster and safer. It also has exciting splitboarding shorts from our team throughout the presentation. Instructors will have free Weston swag for attendees and information on local avalanche education.
Check in for dates around the Front Range. You will get a chance to touch all of the equipment we use out there and ask a professional all of the questions you have.
We will also walk you through a typical tour and what goes into it, including a full demo on trip planning and using the Colorado Avalanche Information Center’s website.
