How to Pack for Big Mountain Skiing and Riding

Going into the mountains is all about meeting the challenges of the terrain and conditions with creative solutions. The gear we choose to pack—or not pack—for a big day out can be the difference between an enjoyable outing and a total sufferfest.

Going into the mountains is all about meeting the challenges of the terrain and conditions with creative solutions. The gear we choose to pack—or not pack—for a big day out can be the difference between an enjoyable outing and a total sufferfest.
