HOW?

We both previously got into the backcountry sport of “splitboarding” that lead to us to knowing about a particular skills camp based out of Revelstoke, BC, Canada called CAPOW. We had happened to sign-up for the same camp in January of 2014. From then on we clicked and found a common ground to leave our industry jobs, head to the mountains and travel around the world pursuing what we love doing outdoors.

WHERE?

So far we’ve travelled to: Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, England, and spent the last 15 months travelling around and living in our caravan in New Zealand! Currently, we’re back home living in Alberta, Canada for the summer trail mapping in the rockies and coaching mountain biking!
