    Looking to study some TRs and get out into the local areas. Just back from a great trip with Wallowa Alpine Huts!

  6. Yo! New guy here. Spend most of my time solo, side country at Lookout, Mt. Spo and 49. Have done some touring at all of the standard areas: St.Regis, Copper, Stevens, Kootenay Pass, Rodgers Pass. Interested in doing some longer tours/traverses when snow is stable. Also interested in exploring anything in the Cabinets and Southern US Selkirks (Gypsy, SnowyTop, etc)
    Thanks!

    Yup.. a few of us do regularly. The best terrain needs to be accessed by sled in North Idaho!
  8. Hey guys, experienced resort rider with a few kooteney pass trips under my belt but only with snowshoes. I just picked up my first split and I'm excited to put it to use. Too bad it's so late in the season now.

  9. Hey everybody! Long time lurker, first time poster here. I'm a splitboarder located down in Moscow. Recently made the switch to hardboots. Loving it. I've poked around locally a bit, as well as in the Wallowas and down in McCall. Would like to explore more north of here. Have my Avy 1 as well as wilderness first aid.

  10. Hey gang! wicked site you guys got going on here. I'm a Canadian who is used to riding the usual Kootenay spots (Whitewater, Kootenay Pass, Rogers Pass etc..). But am heading down to the panhandle for a few days in the next couple weeks. This site is a great resource and look forward to learning as much as possible from you guys!
    cheers

  11. Looking at doing some splitboarding around the panhandle this week.
  12. Hi! I'm pretty new to touring and inexperienced but I'd like to remedy that. I've skinned up Mt Spokane a few times and just took AST 1 up at Red Mountain. I'm looking to get out and earn some turns!

  13. Hey there! My name is Max and I live in Montana, Flathead Valley USA! My girlfriend and I are new to the backcountry scene, still no AVVY 1 workshop, but we did take a two day course from our local avalanche center so we aren't clueless either. Looking for some experienced people to learn from or else low risk terrain we could start venturing out into and *CAUTIOUSLY* start to explore :)

    Hi All, joined to learn more about touring options in the region and meet some new folks to ski with! I live in Seattle normally but am in Spokane for the next week at least. Grew up in the Inland NW and visit frequently.

    Just started touring this year but have been skiing/snowboarding for 20+ years. I've taken the AIARE 1 and Tour Planning courses offered by BCAG and have a handful of tours in the Cascades under my belt.

    Hey! I usually ski around Seattle but am going to be splitting time between Spokane for the next couple weeks. I also just started touring this year but have been skiing much longer, and am hoping to find people to ski with and info about the area. I've taken AIARE 1 and have the necessary avvy gear.

    Down to trade beer for beta.
