 The experiences that come from combining a passion for snowboarding with a human powered element quenches the adventure part of the sport that you can't get from anything else. The transition from resort riding to backcountry takes time and someone to show you. The world of exploring in the winter is endless once you have stepped beyond the boundaries!
