Ascend Splitboarding

MARCH 10-12, 2017

Celebrate backcountry snowboarding and all things seeking, shredding and safety with Ascend, a guided splitboarding experience in Jasper National Park! Even if you can’t make it out for day tours, head on over to D’ed Dog Bar & Grill for a Fundraising Social on March 11, 2017, with all proceeds going to Avalanche Canada.



Our goal is to celebrate backcountry snowboarding and the people who share the passion. The Ascend community is geared toward backcountry safety, education and increased awareness of the sport. Any and all split-boarders are welcome to participate. Whether you are a seasoned mountain goat or fresh to the backcountry, we provide you with a safe, fun and educational experience set in our beautiful National Parks.
