Nothing compares to the joy of an epic day in the backcountry, but are you ready for everything that winter can throw at you?

While we still don’t know how to control the weather, we do know that with the right gear, training, and skills it is possible to safely navigate the backcountry pow and make the right decisions for a safe trip home. Avalanche danger is no joke, and neither is being prepared. That’s why we’re diving into the world of avalanche education, proper backcountry practices, group dynamics, route planning, and all-things safety all December-long - and did we mention we’re giving away $5,000 worth of backcountry gear?!

With some help from our friends at Ortovox, G3, Smith OpticsGive'r GlovesSkida, Skout Backcountry and Guest Contributor Ian Fohrman, we’re getting you stoked, educated, and outfitted for those backcountry touring adventures of your dreams! Whether you’re on one plank or two, we’ve got you covered from head to toe - literally.
