I have been a snowboarder from a young age. I love being outdoors and hiking. Looking around at my friends touring has made me determined to follow their path. That being said, I can't say I like the idea of split-boarding. Therefore my undertaking this year is to both learn to ski and learn to tour. My goal by the end of the season is to be able to go on a touring trip with my fiance. So far it has been going remarkably well. Part of the reason for my success thus far is the community of women around me. Both those who are also learning and those who are willing to teach. It has been a great adventure so far and I can't wait to see where I can get to in the backcountry.
