Kootenay Alliance of Backcountry Snowboarders

Next Up

Not to sound all press-release-y sleazy, but some friends recently prompted me to set up a Facebook group for backcountry snowboarders throughout the Kootenay region of British Columbia.

This came mostly in response to the number of people that came out of the woodwork for The Splitting Hares: Kootenay Splitfest that pseudo-went-down this past weekend; Snowpack and snowfall have been pretty sparse so far this season, but a few brave riders did venture out to Kootenay Pass (pictured) to put in some turns atop Canada's highest year-round highway accessed mountain pass.

If anyone is ever in the neighbourhood or planning to come explore the Kootenays, consider looking up KABS or any of our membership; Snowboarders, splitboarders, skiers and 'shoers all welcome.
