First Trip.

the first trip of the year is something i love. all the anticipation, waiting for the snow, seeing what places are stacking up and coming up with ideas for locations, the route, the zones, everything. the backcountry snowboard season is a short one with prime conditions from mid january to early april, we use this first trip as a starting point for the season, warm up the legs, dial in the sleds and make sure everything is running in optimal condition for the rest of the winter.
