Ski-Touring Season… Crowd-Sourced Guides

I’ve been fielding questions about gear for long-distance, multi-day trips, so I’ve compiled notes from the Alaska Mountain Wilderness Ski Classic crew into a Ski-Touring Equipment Guide.

A big part of the Classics is anticipating and repairing gear failures. After repairing poles, bindings, and boots, and based largely on the insights of engineer Eben Sargent and ski builder Graham Kraft, here is our recommended Backcountry Ski-Tour Repair Kit.

A bit has changed since 2011, but these notes on Fast and Light Winter Travel might also be of interest.
