Backcountry Like A Boss

Backcountry Like A Boss - Instagram Contest

All season G3's team of freeride athletes, guides and mountaineers have been sharing #G3U pro tips to help you make the most of your winter backcountry experience. Now it's your turn and we want to have some fun with it. 

Kootenay & Coast Mountain Culture magazines and G3 are teaming up to hook up one lucky instagrammer with shiny new G3 FINDr skis or G3 Black Sheep splitboard. All you have to do is share an entertaining pro tip on how you do #BackcountryLikeABoss. Pocket bacon snacks for extra power? MacGyver tricks for getting out of a jam? Touring pantless for extra breathability? Burger flipping with a shovel? You tell us.  


This contest is now closed. Congratulations to the winner @thedybber. We liked his creativity and eagerness to get into backcountry skiing.

Honourable Mentions

There were hundreds of great entries to this contest. We'd like to thank each of you for participating. Like any judged contest, almost anyone could have walked away with the prize. Here are a few of our other favourites. Well done.

The contest winner, selected by the judges based on quality and creativity, will be awarded their choice of a pair of G3 FINDr skis or a G3 Black Sheep splitboard. Note that sizing/availability is limited this time of season, so we will do our best to accomodate the winner's specific sizing request.  

The award-winning FINDr 102 bridges the gap between fat, floaty powder skis and super light mountaineering skis. G3's uniqu, flexible Poly-Urethane sidewalls compliment the lightweight carbon construction by increasing dampness and stability. Expect a smooth, confident ride for those varied conditions that any good ski mountaineering mission will throw at you. 

The Black Sheep is our all-around all-mountain freeride splitboard. Full rocker, lightweight carbon hybrid construction, and a playful all-mountain shape that's begging to be ridden.
