"It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)"
19-20TH MARCH - CAIRNGORM MOUNTAIN
Upbattle is an annual grass roots splitboarding event held at the Cairngorm Mountain in the Scottish Highlands. Founded in 2014 by ex-pro snowboarder Jonny Barr, the weekend long event features public product demos, backcountry seminars, the Upbattle Derby, and a BBQ & Film night. In addition proceeds from the event go towards supporting the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team of volunteers who selflessly keep everyone safe in some of the harshest and most unforgiving terrain in the UK.
This year, as one of the proud sponsors of the event, we at TONIC Supply Co. have teamed up with the Upbattle team to create an Ubattle 2022 Capsule Collection, including some unique pieces featuring artwork by RPRoberts.
There's no such thing as harsh weather...
Some probing questions for Jonny
If you're not up for the lung buster that is the derby, you’ll still have the opportunity to demo some of the latest splitboards and check out some of the essential backcountry safety kit that’s available in the UK.
There will also be lots of on-hill advice covering subjects such as skinning techniques, avalanche transceivers, backcountry riding and much more.
Four skin strokers
Believe it or not, Scotland actually has some really great
So, if you've been wanting to get into splitboarding or backcountry riding, want to brush up on some useful skills, need some advice, or just simply want to have some fun, then you really should get yourself up to Aviemore and the Cairngorms on the 19 - 20th March for Upbattle 2022.
