Riding the Mt. Shasta Backcountry

Our Introduction to Splitboarding is the way to go for the intermediate to advanced rider who wants to start getting into the backcountry. This two-day clinic starts with day one at the Mt. Shasta Ski Park to refine your techniques and make adjustments to the new gear.  Start on groomed terrain while progressively moving to terrain that we will experience on a backcountry tour. Receive instruction from an AASI certified snowboard instructor or backcountry guide.
After a night in Mt. Shasta, day two of our Intro to Splitboarding takes us into Mt Shasta’s famed backcountry. A full day tour on the lower mountain puts the skills from day one into action as well as learning new tactics. This day will focus on learning how to select safely and negotiate both the uphill and downhill terrain. Our tour teaches us how to do this as efficiently as possible so that you can more easily enjoy the downhill.  Following up with a final spectacular snowboard descent in
Mt Shasta’s backcountry, which is perhaps the best location in the world for the aspiring backcountry boarder. Steep chutes, wide open bowls, and mellow glades offer an incredible variety for anyone learning to ride the backcountry. Join our guides and hone your backcountry skills in some of the best backcountry terrain in California.
