A product of innovation in touring tech, the Burton Hitchhiker Snowboard Binding is designed on the iconic performance of Spark R&D's Tesla T1 System. This touring interface features Side-Lock touring brackets that eliminate the need for pesky pin systems, which are a major hassle to transition from touring to riding. Not only is this interface much faster on the transition, but just as importantly, it offers an efficient interface for demanding tours with its free-rotating attachment and integrated fatty climbing wire (attached to the binding instead of heel plate). Another cool feature is the ability to attach Burton Splitboard Crampons (not included) for extra traction across icy glaciers and treacherous snow. The rest of the binding sports Burton's premium components for the best in comfort and support when you're skinning up and ripping down the lines of your dreams. The Single-Component Hi-Back is stiff enough for charging steeps and railing dreamy carves down springtime corn, with strategic padding to eliminate calf bite and pressure points. Negative forward lean enhances your stride on the skin-track, all without requiring a tool with its quick-adjust lever. Burton's Hammockstrap is the same as what you'd find on their award-winning Genesis and Malavita Bindings for a secure, boot-wrapping fit. The Supergrip Capstrap hugs the tip of your boot, ensuring a non-slip fit for riders plunging down chutes and open bowls at high speeds. Please note, the Hitchhiker comes with brackets and heel plates, but it doesn't include Spark R&D pucks. All 2015 and newer Burton Splits include compatible pucks, but riders with other splitboards will have to purchase the pucks separately.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
