Backcountry Snowboarding

Snowboarding is the fastest-growing winter sport in the United States. As more and more riders reach advanced levels, they look beyond the resorts to the deep powder, steep challenges, and solitude of the backcountry. But before heading out, boarders also need to be prepared for the backcountry's unique demands. Backcountry Snowboarding covers everything the advanced freerider needs for safe ascent and descent. Van Tilburg discusses essential backcountry safety equipment and debates the merits of crampons, skis, snowshoes, and splitboards for ascent. He offers lessons on route-finding, avalanche and glacier safety, survival and self-rescue, geology, meteorology, plus cross-training and nutrition. Not one to forget the thrill of the ride down, he also covers techniques for all types of terrain and snow: steeps, trees, powder, corn, ice, and crud.
