    Sacred scriptures of backcountry boarding.

    More and more, snowboarders are joining skiers in the uncrowded slopes of the backcountry. The Backcountry Snowboarding Book is a primer for those snowboarders considering getting involved in this outside-the-resort sport with deep powder, steep challenges, and solitude of the backcountry.

    Backcountry Snowboarding covers things the advanced freerider needs to know for safe ascent and descent. Van Tilburg discusses essential backcountry safety equipment, the merits of crampons, skis, snowshoes, and splitboards for ascent, route finding, avalanche and glacier safety, survival and self-rescue, meteorology, plus cross-training and nutrition. He also covers techniques for all types of terrain and snow: steeps, trees, powder, corn, ice, and crud. This book does not replace the need for an avalanche safety course, equipment, or a knowledgeable partner.

    • Offers safe ascent and descent backcountry techniques
    • Full-color photographs
