Challenge yourself on this 3-day advanced splitboarding trip in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, California led by Ryan, an AMGA certified mountain guide!

Cascade Range

3 Days

Jan, Feb, Dec




If you are looking for your next challenging winter adventure, this 3-day advanced splitboarding trip is perfect for you! My proposal is to explore some of the most challenging Eastern Sierra Nevada classic descents. 

Sierra Nevada is famous for its spectacular scenery. Additionally, it offers skiers and splitboarders high quality snow and countless challenging descents.  On this 3-day advanced program, we’ll climb and ride 1500 ft vertical slopes of up to 50 degrees. Some of the classic descents we will explore include the Incredible Hulk Chute, the West Couloir and the Horse Creek Canyon of Matterhorn Peak, among others.

Because this is an advanced splitboarding trip, you will need prior backcountry and off-piste experience to join. Also, keep in mind that we’ll be carrying an overnight pack all day on a splitboard. Therefore, it’s essential to be in good physical condition. 

Are you ready for a fun adventure that will let you take your splitboarding skills to a whole new level? Then request to book this trip and get ready to discover the amazing Eastern Sierra Nevada in California!

If you are looking for more unforgettable experiences in California, you can also join me on this 2 day guided climb of the East Ridge of Mt. Humphreys.

What people are saying about Ryan



Weather changed the event from 3 to 1 day and I was unable to summit in one day. Suggest the trip be delayed instead of trying to get it done in one day.



Patrick took me out to the Indian Cove! Loved the short approach and couldn’t asked for better weather. Patrick recommended great pitches where I could try new stuff like chimneying. Would definitely book again if I go back to JTree!



We had an excellent time with Chad on our multi -pitch day in Joshua Tree. My partner and I have some experience climbing sport routes, but had no experience with trad climbing or multi-pitch routes. Chad is a great instructor and led our routes with ease. We felt confident in his abilities to keep us safe and have fun. Will definitely book again with him.



Super easy to work with. Great communication. Great guide. Will definitely use again.



We booked through Ryan, and Daniel was our guide - absolutely brilliant, very down to earth and knowledgeable. The climbs themselves were awesome, with insane views. My partner is an experienced indoor climber, and I have close to no experience, especially outdoors, but still felt safe and in good hands. We did a half day, which was 5hrs, and got 4 climbs in, then stayed after the tour to walk around a bit more and have some snacks with a view (make sure you take food/water as there aren’t any shops inside the park). Definitely recommend.
