The Sled Factor
The stink of burning fuel and the brazen braaap of snowmobiles makes them the manliest means of transportation to remote man trip shred zones, but if you’re not down, touring out on a splitboard is always an option. In fact, many of BC’s best backcountry cabins are split-access only. But whether your crew chooses to sled or shuffle into the wilderness, all other man trip rules still apply.
