Splitboarding terrain management and how to not be the last of all your ski buddies

This is a mentorship event and is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship) program organized by ACC Calgary Alpine Chair jointly with ACMG Guide Jeff Bullock. For level 1-2 participants the expectation is that you have done a handful of backcountry splitboard trips and know how to board down basic terrain. You have also completed AST1. The goal of this event is to learn how to improve your terrain selection on the up and down, setting good up tracks, efficient movements on a split board, tips for when and how to ski your split, along with downhill boarding such as making controlled turns in non-groomed runs, around trees, anticipating difficult terrain. How to increase transitions from up to down will also be covered.    Cost of 110$ per participant

AST1 is mandatory. BITS friendly if you are an experienced boarder. Send me a quick summary of your ski/tour experience. Include a few of your destinations. Joelgamache10@gmail.com

Cost is 110 per person.
