Backcountry Ski Gear: Our Favourite Picks for this Winter (Part 1)

Backcountry Ski Gear: Our Favourite Picks for this Winter (Part 1)
Colder nights and the occasional dusting of snow can only mean one thing: ski season is approaching! Although it has been a busy Summer for us, we have once again carefully curated a wide selection of backcountry skiing gear from our favourite brands. It’s one of those times where if the maximal amount of skis was really (n+2), we would have a really hard time not buying every single model for ourselves. This is the stuff that we believe in and the stuff that will us and you to incredible places this Winter. Here are, as a preview, some of our top gear picks for 2018-2019.

Trail Running Shoes - Our Line Up for Summer 2018

Spring and Easter are already here. While there are still tons of great ski turns to be had this season, the snowy trails are starting to melt (That was before we got 20 cm of snow yesterday...). We are starting to think about the trails we want to run this Summer. This video goes through our line up of shoes for the year

A couple of weeks back Joel got a heads up from one Andrew Wexler aka The Best Skier On The Mountain that he should check out Commonwealth Couloir. This was a line I’d put on my ‘never even consider’ list so I was apprehensive to say the least. Still, Joel has a winning smile and it’s hard to say no to the guy so we went up for a look.

We were stymied at the first cliff band by snow, rock, spindrift and a general lack of ability. Retreat was the only option but the fires in the Temple of Stoke had been, well, stoked.
