Is this the year you leave the lifts and groomers behind? If so, don’t miss our first splitboard primer with the experts at Weston Snowboards. They’ll cover the basics of choosing your first splitboard as well as how to set it up, and transition between touring and downhill travel. Delve into the basics of planning a backcountry trip, reading the CAIC website, and avalanche awareness. The Weston Team knows how to get after it in the Colorado backcountry and will share their best tips and tricks to help you plan your own adventures.
We're bringing splitboarding back in a big way. Not only are we introducing the award-winning Weston Snowboards to Durango, we're giving you the chance to try out our shiny new splitboards before the season even gets started.
Join us for a two-hour evening demo under the Chapman Hill lights. We'll have the slope to ourselves, so you can practice uphill skinning techniques, learn how to transition quickly, and shred downhill on the men's Weston Backwoods or the women's Riva (a personal favorite of BCEXP staff.)
Whether you're just getting into splitboarding or shopping for a new board this season, here's your chance to see why Weston is taking over backcountry snowboarding.
We'll also have a variety of climbing skins from Black Diamond, Pomoca and G3, as well as bindings from Spark R&D to demo. Plus Osprey Packs will be on hand with a sweet selection of demo packs. Don't worry, there will be hot chocolate.
The demo is $10 to attend and we'll accept both cash and credit card.
