Whether he's riding a remote peak in an untapped range or raising the bar for what tricks can be done in the backcountry, Travis Rice is always expanding the boundaries of what's possible on a snowboard. Lib Tech takes a similar approach when it comes to designing and building snowboards, and no board in Lib Tech's line illustrates that better than the T. Rice Climax Snowboard. Using experimental technologies and proven features, this board is quite simply the lightest, strongest, and most advanced board Lib Tech has ever created.Travis wanted to take advantage of the unsurpassed strength-to-weight ratio of carbon fiber, but the problem is that this brittle material creates an overly chattery riding experience. Lib Tech founder/mad scientist Mike Olson was intrigued by the challenge of creating a carbon fiber board that wasn't just light and strong, but also rides like a dream. His solution was to mix ribs of recycled PET (made from used plastic bottles) foam in the core butted up against the carbon to achieve a supreme balance of strength and weight while maintaining the dampness needed for high-speed charging and sending jumps.If that wasn't enough, Lib Tech also decided to add its lightest core and a magnesium fiber layup for incredibly lightweight, yet strong performance. Spin-Slim tips reduce swing weight to help Travis huck ever-bigger spins into powder. In addition to these space-age materials, this board also sports Lib Tech's proven C2x profile with lengthened camber zones for an aggressive, powerful feel that still maintains float in the deep stuff. All of these features add up to make this one of the most environmentally-friendly boards on the market.

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.
