    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    Got the nephew a board, doubt he’ll do much more than get pulled around by his parents at this point (he’s two) but he seems excited

    Per step one, I haven’t tried them but I’ve heard good things. That said, if burton and dc don’t fit your feet, you are SOL. Nidecker is doing a new step in binding this year that accepts all boots, might be worth checking out.

    Day one in the books, what a beauty sunshine was. I borrowed a buddy’s rock board while I was getting my usual board a base grind at the glide factory, I didn’t see a single rock all day, so much fresh stuff everywhere.

    Base is building up nice on sunshine, still some thin spots here and there but the ski out is open and I went exploring in the trees on wawa without any horrible consequences.

    Thinking of doing my avy training, anyone here have recommendations for companies you went with?

    Cloudnine is who I did AST2 through, highly recommend. They do a great AST1 program as well. Highly recommend adding another day after if you have the option as AST1 is very much focused on teaching you how little you know and not much time spent skiing at all. Should have plenty of snow to go look at now up at Bow Summit now too.

    Edit: looks like cloudnine does the AST+ Connect. Good deal for a day with a mountain guide.

    One concern, I am slowly accumulating splitboarding gear. If I do the ast1 this year am I going to forget everything next year if I don’t get out there and use the skills a few times this year?

    I would definitely recommend getting out a couple times after AST to keep your skills somewhat fresh. Might be worth doing it next year if you’re still collecting gear (or finding a partner to go backcountry with). Just don’t get all the gear and assume you’re good to go, I know I won’t ski with someone with AST and I think that’s the trend (I’d love to make sure at a minimum that my partners can find and dig me out)

    Yea that is the scenario I’m going through now, I have lots of friends who want to learn but I’m the one who has to coordinate the training lol. Once I have the gear and training I’ll definitely look into going with some more experienced folks first, but I definitely know I can retain knowledge better if I can practice it soon after.

    If you can get enough guys together doing a custom or private course is infinitely better as you won’t have to worry about the random guy who can barely hike who really screws a course up. Made a huge difference on our AST2 but would be the same for AST1

    Yea I figured as much, also easier to get them back out as a group later. I’m tempted to grab the snowshoes and find a mild hill somewhere after the training as that is something I could likely get them out to.

    My buddy said castle was awsome on Friday and empty.
    I have little kids and a Norquay pass, the snow is good but not desirable to be at.

    I like Norquay. The far chair is a nice place.
