Mt Baker, WA (February 26, 2010)
The Mt Baker Splitboard Festival will be taking place March 27 and 28. frequency TSJ is a proud sponsor of this event–reserve your spot now for a chance to stay at the Mountaineer’s Lodge, a five minute walk from the lifts, and take part in a weekend of splitboarding clinics, tours and more.
From event organizer Terry Schmidbauer:
“For a weekend in March we will gather together in the Pacific Northwest to tour the backcountry, share our stories and maybe even learn a few things about the passion we call Splitboarding.
The history of Snowboarding can trace it roots back to the Mt Baker backcountry, an area noted for its early snowfalls, deep winter snowpack, and late season riding. So what would be a better place to hold this inaugural event than the Mt Baker area?
We will be staying at the Mountaineers Lodge which is close to destinations such as Artist Point, Table Mountain, and Herman Saddle. The Lodge has a breathtaking view of Mount Shuksan and is only a five-minute walk from the lifts of Mt Baker Ski area.
So, if you have been Splitboarding for a year or a decade, this will be an event to remember.
Date: March 27th and 28th.
Lodging and meals: Mt Bake Mountaineers Lodge, $70 for full weekend.
Events include a Splitboarding Techniques Class, a Basic Avalanche Awareness Class and a raffle to benefit the Friends of the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center.
