For the past ten years, SASS Global Travel has offered one of the premier guided backcountry snowboarding experiences in the world at their flagship SASS Argentina program based in Bariloche, Argentina. Taking advantage of full-on winter conditions in the Andes Mountains during the North Hemisphere summer, SASS’ Argentina camp is an all-ages guided program that offers a rare opportunity for dedicated snowboarders to ride incredible backcountry terrain in August and learn critical backcountry skills such as avalanche awareness and splitboarding from SASS professional coaches like Jones Snowboards’ Ambassador Guide Chris Coulter. For 2014 and beyond, all splitboard clinics taught at SASS Argentina and the new SASS Japan program will feature Jones Snowboards’ award winning splitboard models including the Solution and the new Explorer.

“Introducing people to the backcountry is our specialty at SASS and teaching our clients to splitboard is the perfect way for us to help them take their backcountry snowboarding to the next level,” said Pete Connolly, SASS Brand Manager and SASS Argentina Mountain Operations Manager. “We’ve always had the terrain and the personnel dialed in, now with this partnership with Jones Snowboards we have the ultimate splitboards for our clients as well.“ 

Jones Snowboards’ Solution splitboard was designed by freeride snowboarding legend Jeremy Jones and is the best selling splitboard in the world; renowned for it’s performance and versatility in all terrain and snow conditions. The 2015 Explorer is a new Jones splitboard design made for aspiring backcountry riders and crossover freestyle riders who demand a hard charging board that’s still playful and forgiving. The Jones splitboard demo fleet available to SASS clients includes men’s and women’s Solution and Explorer splitboards in several sizes.
