The United States is known as the land of the free, and this applies to its landscape, scenery and terrain as well, with every conceivable kind of natural beauty packed in to the country. Splitboarding is a truly glorious and exciting way to discover and explore some of the more isolated and remote areas, with space by the bucketload and few crowds helping the experience.

Utah’s Wasatch Mountains backcountry ski days

The backcountry ski trip with Willie was awesome! He called me the day before the trip to explain where we were going to go and what we were going to do. Given that the weather was going to be cold, he brought along a thermos flask that I could put hot tea in. On the second day, he shared his thermos of hot tea with me since I didn't take the thermos. The snow conditions were a bit variable but Willie did a good job finding some good powder (especially the second day where we were able to ski 18 inches of untracked powder on an east facing bowl). The skinning part on the second day was extremely challenging because it was on a 32-34 degree slope with about 12 inches of fresh powder and it made the kick turns rather exciting. Willie really helped by using his shovel on each of the kick turns to make it a bit easier for me to make the turn. Willie also provided some coaching tips along the way both on the skinning as well as on the skiing part. He was also able to accurately judge what kind of terrain would work for my skill/fitness level and push me to that level! Willie was also a great companion. He has traveled all over the world and has had some interesting experiences which he shared. All in all, I had a really good trip with Willie.

Jim was a great guide. While we were challenged with finding good snow, Jim knew where to get it even a couple weeks after it has snowed. Jim is super knowledgeable about the backcountry and snow conditions, and I would definitely highly recommend him.

Intro to Backcountry Skiing in Tahoe

We had a great experience with Jim Moore. We were all beginners to the Backcountry, and he had valuable experience and great stories to share. We had some rental equipment malfunctions and he was very accommodating and understanding about that also. I feel we gained a lot of knowledge in a short period of time and had a lot of fun as well. Thanks again Jim and we hope to be out in the Backcountry again soon!

Wonderful experience in the Tahoe backcountry. Jim made sure of it. He studied the conditions prior to my arrival and made sure we had the best snow in the most protected areas. We were able to summit the peak twice and ski the North as well as the East aspects. He educated me on snow & weather conditions and what to be looking for. Surely what must be mentioned is how much he was interested in my personal experience. He was a phenomenal guide that I will call again. Thank you Jim so much!

We didn't have the best snow conditions, but we had an awesome time getting our first exposure to backcountry skiing. Jim is a great teacher - he gave us a solid foundation, and we're excited to continue our education!


 

There are many reasons for choosing Splitboarding in United States

The sheer size and scale of the United States means there is an overwhelming amount of terrain to splitboard on. Some of the terrain is extremely isolated and remote, owing to the low population density of many states, making for pristine and untouched conditions. There are plentiful mountains in places such as the Mid-West and Alaska, including some of the highest peaks in North America.
