Nice vid. But also bring a few feet of duct tape. It can be used to fix broken torn shell jackets and pants, broken skis and so much more!

Started this video playing in the background… thought it was Tiger Woods for a minute. You have a very similar voice. After watching the video finally, it’s very helpful. Hope to get into touring very very soon!

“101” you need a good ski binders. . . Do not go to a dynafit binding as your first backcountry setup. Jesus. Act like you are actually educating people. Thee most valuable piece of equipment (not a beacon) it is their head!!!!!. Stay off of terrain that puts you in danger depending on snow conditions! Your cell phone is way more valuable , than a beacon, if just read the snow report ! Stay off of slopes that are dangerous. P.s. go to the local beacon on park to learn how to search effectively. And carry a compass. So you know which slope your on.

The dude on this video is a very good presenter. It is easy to follow him. He speaks clearly.
