A new documentary shines the spotlight on a unique winter sport. It’s called “splitboard mountaineering” and it uses a special board that can be used as a snowboard or split into skis as needed! Kyle Miller, a local splitboarding pioneer and the focus of the documentary called “FreeRider,” joined Margaret to talk about his love of the sport and the documentary. He also revealed a secret: he’s afraid of heights!
The FreeRider documentary will have its US premiere in Seattle on Friday, February 3 at 7:30pm, at the Mountaineers Program Center in Seattle. The event benefits the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center.
