Back Country Ball at Sugar Bowl

Best Touring Binding


BR
At the intersection of fun and education, the most learning takes place. The Backcountry Ball at Sugar Bowl was a hit. Listen to what the Sierra Avalanche Center guys say. Right after this, there was the tragedy at Donner Ski Ranch, (Right next-door) and the accident at Alpine Meadows. Be safe and err on the side of caution, Freshies aren’t worth the altering of all the lives of your loved-ones.
On the lighter side, the new Atomic, touring binding is reviewed and Daron Rahlves gives some good turns in a POV cam. Happy New Year!

Waterhouse Peak is accessible on Highway 88. Park on the shoulder and put your skins on. I just did this with Todd Gillihan, local (loco) split-boarder and we realized some things.

There are few things in this world as important as friendships. Take care of them. They are all you’ve got.


We are going to change the world through adventures and bringing people together by giving and sharing our passions.


Stand by your spouse, no matter what.


Stay together. Get lost with friends but never alone.

Split-Boards are snowboards cut in half and are worth it if you like backcountry and are a knuckledragger.
