Light touring gear as compared to performance track gear is recommended. Ankle high boots with support, 75 mm, NNN BC or SNS BC bindings and skis with waist of 50-60 mm and tip/tail 70-85 ¾ edge (your choice, no matter) are recommended. Climbing, descending and traveling in off-piste snow will be covered in the technique area as well as fitting equipment. What should go in a daypack and how to use will also be covered. A long day tour or two tours, depending on the situation, will allow us to practice what we will be discussing. Climbing, traveling, descending, transitioning, hydration, energy, timing and orienteering will be topical areas we will cover in greater depth before departing or en route.
