A good pair of backcountry skis, alpine touring boots, AT or Tech bindings (and some would say poles) can be a game changer. Good gear can bring you to backcountry ski touring locations you never thought possible. Bad gear can be a complete buzz kill. Are you able to support a garage full of backcountry gear including a light touring set-up and one for bomber slackcountry days? Perhaps you are looking for a quiver of one that’ll do it all? Whatever the case, backcountry ski touring gear is evolving leaps and bounds and, in this section, we try to help you navigate through the myriad of choices. We hope to add some telemark and split board gear this year too! Be sure to join in the fun and tell us your thoughts regarding a specific piece of gear.
