Go split boarding
Earn your Turns

I have been snowboarding since 1989 so this winter will be my 20th season. I recently moved to the mountains of Bozeman, Montana where backcountry is measured in the millions of acres with countless couloirs and bowls to be carved. There are no lifts to these hills and people desiring these descents must first make the ascents. I’ve recently become the proud owner of a Prior Khyber split board, Spark R&D bindings, and Voile skins on which I will be experiencing the freedom of the hills this winter and for many winters to come.

Race in the Arrowhead 135
The Arrowhead Winter Ultra

The Arrowhead Winter Ultra is a non-profit human powered ultramarathon on bike, foot or skis, covering 135 miles across the Arrowhead Region of Northern Minnesota from International Falls near the Canadian border to Tower, MN. The course follows a scenic, hilly, State multi-purpose trail under extreme winter conditions the first Monday of February.
