Experience: You have a day or two out touring with friends but feel new and intimidated with 1) the term “complex terrain” 2) Transitions 3) multi peak day 4) Your outfit Fitness: Love the outdoors, but wish you could get out more. A full day is fine, but prefer lots of snack breaks Shredability: Strong intermediate. Can shred at least 85% of inbounds terrain at your local resort.
Experience: Completed either an Avalanche Skills Training Level 1 course or been guided backcountry skiing before. Generally proficient and confident with mountain travel. Limited experience in complex terrain, but excited to #exploremore Fitness: Bring on a big day, but let’s talk the whole way. There’s more to life then panting for air. Shredability: Advanced. Will shred all terrain and comfortable in changing snow conditions
Experience: You’ve been out there doing this for years maybe even completed an AST 2. You own an ice axe and aren’t afraid to use it. Fitness: So you’re fit, and you identify yourself as such. You’re looking for big days and big vert. Shredability: Humility is good but you can ski any terrain and make it look good.
Experience: Years of backcountry touring in complex terrain and a credible level of avalanche training. More-than-proficient with technical equipment: ice axe, crampons, roping up on a glacier. Fitness: You think you can actually hang with Greg Hill?… the guy that ski toured 2 million vertical in a season. Shredability: Rappel into a couloir or 10,000+ ft days – BRING IT

They've learned everything the hard way and are passionate at expediting the learning process for splitboarding everywhere. You might just find a new best friend.

We think safety should be fun, cool and the first priority of the ever-growing community of backcountry enthusiasts. It is our prerogative to communicate from the start to the end of the day. We’re going shredding and we’ll let ya know whats up, there’s a lot to learn from that. If you’re not into this, we’re not into you…the backcountry is our home, passion and arena to bring the best out of you. Lets get deep

First off, no one is getting left behind. secondly you’re probably faster than you think. We’re here to empower you, and cater to all abilities. CAPOW excels at dynamics, we do everything we can to get like minded people together and make sure you’re in the right trip before we even start.
