Ski Touring

No lifts, no problem! Touring has become one of the fastest growing facets of the ski world and with it’s limitless potential it’s no wonder so many skiers are getting into it.

Back country or slack country? There is a big difference, one is more about the challenge while the other is more about finding that untouched pow or hidden booter, and for some it’s both. Our selection of touring gear is focused more on our local skiers, the powder seekers, we carry brands and equipment that can best benefit them in all aspects of their skiing, back country or at the resorts.
