WHY CHOOSE US?

Created by Justin Ibarra, our Director of Operations/Lead Guide and founder of Colorado Snowboard Guides, we are one of the first splitboard specific course developers and providers in the country. With an increase of lift prices and traffic, more and more people have been venturing into the backcountry. With this increase we noticed the demand to fulfill an outlet for snowboarders to further their skill-sets off-piste through courses in backcountry education, guided trips, and mentorship while helping spread the passion to others. Now in partnership with Weston, and with years of program execution and development, we are one of the premier Guided Splitboard Education Providers in the country. Our office is our sanctuary and our goal is to bring you into the backcountry to experience what this beautiful world has to offer.
