Pro Ride is running it's first 2 week backcountry camp in Whistler this season.
The backcountry camp held over 2 weeks will combine Pro Ride's freeride/off piste snowboard training with the Level 1 AST certification course giving you the skills necessary to venture into the backcountry safely. The 2nd week will allow time to choose a day or two of backcountry split boarding, cat boarding and heli boarding.
The first week starts with 5 days of technical rider development with Pro Rides top coaches. During this time you will work on the skills necessary for you to have a fun and safe experience in the backcountry. Pro Rides coaches take every opportunity to explore the backcountry and are always excited to pass on their knowledge to others. Through coach feed back, and video analysis sessions you will work on technique for safely riding deep powder, trees, chutes, and other terrain encountered in the backcountry.
Level 1 AST
Following the rider improvement sessions you will be attending a 2.5 day AST (Avalanche Skills Training) course. The AST course involves a mix of theory and practical skills to teach you basic safety and knowledge for winter backcountry travel. This is the most comprehensive AST - 1 course available in the Whistler area. You will enjoy some fresh turns and learn about: formation of avalanches, factors affecting snow-pack, route finding, safety equipment usage and snow-pack observation and assessment.
After the AST level 1 course you have free days to ride, relax, or plan some adventures of your own. Don't ware yourself out because the second week starts with a day of earning your turns split boarding in the Whistler backcountry. Surrounded by stunning views and fields of untracked snow, there is nothing like reaping the rewards of your efforts.
If split boarding and exploring the backcountry was your view of heaven then you have the option continue on and explore new areas the next day. If you are looking to cover more terrain on your holiday, you also have the option to add a dayof heli or cat boarding. On your last day you will join in with the Pro Ride crew for our Friday fun day, where we will go for a short hike, explore a new area, or build a backcountry booter. As always the week winds up in the Whistler village with food, drinks, and many stories.

Japan Pow Expedition 2013
After our epic trip to Niseko, Japan in 2009 we've been itching to get back again.With memories of 70cm days, powder filled tree runs at 9pm under the lights, and more amazing food then you can imagine we had to go back for more adventure.
We will be flying into Chitose Airport in Hokkaido, Japan on Feb 11, 2013. From there we will take a charter bus to the resort village of Niseko where we will be spending the next 9 days exploring the 4 different reosrts Niseko has to offer.
Niseko is regarded as one of Japan's top resorts. Equipped with an efficient lift system of gondolas and covered chairlifts, you can ride in comfort on even the most extreme blizzard days. Bad weather does not mean bad visibility in Niseko as the resort has an abundance of tree runs. It is low in altitude so rarely do you experience true whiteout conditions that are often found in European resorts of higher altitude.
Niseko is made up of 5 different resorts: Annupuri, Higashiyama, Hirafu, Hanazono and Moiwa. Your lift pass provides access to 4 of the 5, the only exception being Moiwa, a smaller resort on the western side of Annapuri. We will be staying at Hirafu where the with easy access to Annupuri, Higashiyama and Hanazono from the top of the mountain or by shuttle bus.
