CCS Snow: Get Prepared for The Backcountry
There are few experiences that can compare to sliding down an immaculate mountain at full speed and blasting light feathery snow into the stratosphere. If you are after pristine power, at some point in your snowboarding career you will need to venture into the backcountry.
Taking your carcass into the backcountry will get you away from the masses and into some unspoiled and perfect terrain. The payoff off of unmolested powder is not cheap though, there are some serious dangers involved.
Don’t think you can just waltz into the backcountry unprepared; you’ll need some important gear and knowledge to stay alive and healthy to ride another day. Avalanches are no joke; they take scores of lives every year. It’s important that you are well versed in avalanche safety and you seek out all of the local knowledge available. Your best bet for doing your first foray into the backcountry is to do it as part of a prepared tour.
CCS has you covered, below is a list of essential items you’ll need to shred and survive an outing into the backcountry.
