Last year I started touring on a splitboard, spending over 50 days on the snow from December 2014 to April 2015 in the Alps. The Alps are an incredible place for touring with many communities participate in "touring abend" or evening touring where skiers/snowboarders/snowshoers can skin up the mountain in the evening and dine at a lodge before descending back to the village below.
In between snow seasons I achieved a lifetime goal of completing an Ironman triathlon.
My goals for 2016 are to:
-Join the National Ski Patrol and complete Alpine Patroller training
-Climb Mont Blanc
-Traverse the Haute Route
-Complete Mountain Travel and Rescue course
-Snowboard 50 days
