Westbeach kitted the Tailgate team out with clothing and beanies to fend off the chill in the air at the inaugural Tailgate BC event which took place in Revelstoke BC.
The gear will get its next test at Tailgate Alaska held near Valdez, AK on Thompson Pass set to kick off in April 1-12 2012.
Now heading into its fifth year, Tailgate Alaska has become one of THE must-attend events in winter sports. The location provides some of the most direct big-mountain access on the planet. Around camp, backcountry education plays a central role, with snow-safety classes, beacon searches, and snowmobile-riding/sled maintenance clinics.
"The event was a great success bringing together new friends to ride amazing conditions in some of the worlds best mountains. Snow science classes, Man Games and nightly parties kept the energy going while the powder fell"
