Backcountry skiing is the best way to sample endless untracked powder—but when things get hairy, you can’t look to a ski patroller for help. People get hurt, break equipment, or get hypothermia, and without the right gear, the situation can escalate quickly. Before every trip to the backcountry, spend a few minutes to check for these basic items. I can’t count how many times one of these things changed a potential disaster into just another day of perfect skiing.
