The equipment I started backcountry skiing with...
Last Saturday was my first day out of the season on the skintrack. It was awesome to glide on snow again, make a couple kickturns and enjoy some turns. As we were skinning up, I couldn't help but notice what other skiers were hauling uphill and it made me think of what equipment I started touring on before I got to that weight I consider being the "sweet spot" for me. Here it is.

Weekend Warriors

Weekend Warriors

By Kieran Crimeen

A high pressure system poked its nose in on the tail end of some snow so the weekend looked like a great time to head up to the Columbia Icefields area and have another go at the Skyladder.

After agreeing to leave Canmore at some stupid hour (1.45 for those interested) I went to sleep fidgeting nervously because a) it’s an intimidating route and b) the Backcountry Alpha aka Peter Knight would be in attendance. We howled up the Parkway, nearly losing a wheel that wasn’t bolted on properly and got underway at 4.30. I crushed the approach, dropping Joel and Peter for at least 20 seconds before they caught up and had me puffing to keep them in sight.
