With the winter upon us in full swing on the West Coast, it’s time to haul out the ski touring gear. Most of the gear I take on my day trips is similar no matter where we are going. Depending on the weather the number of layers and thicknesses will change but the basic gear stays the same. Note: Travelling in the backcountry can be dangerous and appropriate precautions should be taken. Make sure you are prepared.
