With over 20 years of combined professional outdoor guiding experience, CSG is Colorado's premier snowboard specific guide service. Created by riders and for riders we are a grassroots and local guide service that was developed with you in mind. With the increase in lift prices and capacities, more and more people are now starting to venture into the backcountry. With this increase CSG noticed the demand to fulfill an outlet for snowboarders to further their skill-sets off-piste through courses in backcountry education, guided trips, and mentorship while helping spread the passion to others. Located in the heart of Colorado, our office is our sanctuary and our goal is to bring you into the backcountry to experience what this beautiful world has to offer.

"I have taken a few guided splitboard tours with Justin Ibarra and I was thoroughly impressed with his knowledge of the backcountry terrain, safety and splitboarding techniques. He is a true professional and I would highly recommend his guiding services."
Jake L., Portland
"The Intro to Splitboarding course with Justin was tailored to my needs as a new splitboarder. I learned new techniques and knowledge that I look forward to using when I get my Avy 1 certification this season. I highly recommend this course to anyone who's new to the backcountry."
Bonny V., Wheatridge
"I signed up for their advanced splitboard hut trip. The trip was such a great experience! We learned compass and map navigation, how to build an emergency snow pit, beacon searches with multiple burials, trip planning, skinning techniques, on snow safety and route decisions. It was based in an awesome backcountry hut!
