    In this forum you can connect with other backcountry riders for upcoming tours.
    Maybe you are visiting from out of town and want to tour with someone of local knowledge, or a someone who lives here and wants to learn more about a specific area.

    Please no paid/unlicensed guiding.

  2. Tour partners wanted
    I am heading back to Spokane for work starting 1/7/15 to 2/4/15 and would like to tour. Wondering if anyone is interested in going with an avid skiier with little avy training. Been skinning at the resorts when they are closed and done a few tours with a freind in the Snoqualmie area the last two years. I will bring my beacon if anyone is interested.

    My fiance and I live in Spokane and would like to get out and explore the area with knowledgeable riders. We have limited bc/avy experience and would like to practice/hone our skills in the bc. I am mostly interested in learning about zones with easier access that are well known and see frequent skier activity. If anybody is interested give me a call at 509.844.7696.

    Looking for ppl to get in some backcountry turns with this season! I've done quite a bit of backcountry tele skiing but am somewhat new to north Idaho and would love to go with someone that knows their stuff around here!

  5. I'm looking for some cohorts to explore and find adventure with. I'm living the ski bum life and want to get beyond the lifts.

    I heard Mrytle Creek is open and warrants a tour.

  7. Anybody heading to Washington Pass this weekend? I'm driving down from Kelowna, BC Saturday evening for a quick car camp and ski Sunday. Plan is Rainy Pass-Heather/Maple Pass Loop. Skinning by 7:00 am to avoid warm afternoon. Let me know if you want to join me. I have AST 1 and 4 years experience. I've done the Birthday Tour and some other tours in the WA Pass area.
  8. Hello. Just moved from the East Coast about 9 mos. ago. Got some skiing in at Kootenay BC and have done level one avalanche course with National Ski Patrol. I am a strong intermediate backcountry skier looking to hook up with others and get to know the local terrain. If anyone is willing to hook up for skiing around Lookout pass/Stevens peak area. Let me know and I can give more info. on myself and abilities. Thanks.

  12. Anyone from the Moscow-Pullman area looking to tour Freezeout this winter? It'd be a drive for me but if Spokane-CDA folks are looking for an extra partner, I want to check out the Mullan area this winter too. I've been here for a few years and can't seem to find consistent touring partners with all the grad student turnover. Thanks!

  14. Garan, hey!
    I’m just moved up to the Clark fork area and I’m always looking for some touring partners. Have you a Schweitzer pass?

  16. I landed a new job. I'm now living in Sandpoint! Looking for touring partners. I've lived in Seattle, Minneapolis, Spokane, Portland and now Sandpoint. Been sliding on snow since 3yrs old (was a skier). Been snowboarding longer than most. Splitboard is my current set-up.

    I do have a Schweitzer season pass. Let's go!

    Hey! If anyone is in need of a touring partner with minimal knowledge, but a decent rider and typically a good attitude, let me know. I have a lot of boarding experience, but only got into backcountry last year. I have not done an avalanche course yet (scheduled for January). I have mostly been riding off the backside of Schweitzer and the training grounds across from Lookout. I would love to explore some new terrain... or further explore old terrain. I normally ride Thursday - Sunday.
