looking for a backcountry ski touring buddy on weekends around Bay Area (Tahoe, ...)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi folks,

I am looking for a mate or mates for backcountry ski trips around Bay Area. I just bought alpine touring skis and would like to start with this sport.I have not ski for years but I used to be an adavnced skier riding off trails. I became also an advanced snowboarder since I stopped skiing, prefer backcountry and powder. Because it is not that easy to hike with the board to get to the right places I decided to switch to skis again for the true backcountry experience. I am hoping not to stay alone on my trips.
Thanks,
Jana

Just a random thought: If you don't hook up here and you haven't gotten your training in yet, this should be a good way to meet people and take care of business:

Have a safe winter.

You'll find a larger crew of backcountry folks on the TGR forums (for once I'm not joking when sending someone there) and also on Teletips forum. Also, there are a few people on the Ski Pals yahoo group.

I try to get out and tour some, although I get most of my bc days in the spring in the Sierra down by Mammoth. In the winter I live in the Bay Area, but try to spend as much time as possible at Alpine Meadows.

Jana - in particular you'll want to keep an eye on the Tahoe thread on TGR.

People will put together BC outings throughout the season.
