BCA T3 Avalanche Rescue Package Review
David Tucker
Combo packages have pros and cons. Buying everything at once is convenient and mindless, plus manufacturers usually discount product slightly if you making a bigger purchase. But avalanche safety gear isn't necessarily where you want to skimp, and your process should be anything but mindless. Read more >>

Chris McCarthy
We take preventative measures for our health every day: we brush our teeth to prevent cavities; we exercise for ­our hearts; we wear our seatbelts in case of a car wreck. Read more >>
Salomon Qst Pro 120
Chris McCarthy
As much as I picture myself a hardcore skier—the kind that searches for powder stashes well beyond ski-area boundaries—I know that I’m not there yet. I can handle myself in most situations, but when it comes to going out of bounds, I always let excuses stop me. Read more >>

FlyLow IQ Pant Review
Tucker, David
Come winter, I wear my ski pants more than any other item of clothing. That means they need to be durable, they need to be comfortable, and they need to be functional. Read more >>

Madshus Glitterhind BC Review
Chris McCarthy
I was in search of a backcountry ski package that would be as effective on groomers and packed snow as it would be cutting trail through fresh powder. Read more >>

G3 Alpinist
Tucker, David
Nothing ruins a day in the backcountry like iffy skins. It can’t be “all about the uphill” if snow is piling up between your skis and your skins, your skins won’t stay attached to your tails, and you’re losing traction after an hour. Read more >>

Stio Environ Bib
Pogge, Drew
I have a heck of a time with ski pants. Since I put a lot of days in, durability is a huge factor, but since I ski primarily in the backcountry, so are weight, venting, and range of motion. Last year, I went through three pairs (two succumbed to ripped crotches and one to a gash in the thigh). Read more >>
Patagonia Powslayer Bibs, Montana Backcountry Skiing
McCarthy, Chris
When you spend a lot of time outdoors in the elements, protection is key, but functionality is equally important. With that in mind, I went looking for a workhorse ski pant and landed on the PowSlayer Bibs from Patagonia. Read more >>
Madshus Hypersonic
Pollastro, Joyce
While learning to skate ski was infinitely more challenging than I’d anticipated, I was lucky enough to have Madshus’s Hypersonic skate skis along for the ride. The Hypersonics have a Triaxial carbon construction, which makes them durable while still being light and flexible. Read more >>
