HOW TO BACKCOUNTRY SKI (ULTIMATE GUIDE & VIDEO)
Do you want to learn how go go from the slopes out to the fresh powder snow in the backcountry?
We made this guide to help you who already knows how to ski in the slopes, proceed out to the backcountry.
This video is complementary to the written article and covers gear and how it is used in real situations.
Pontus from Ridestore Magazine tags along two local ski patrols and a pro skier when they are heading out to explore a new area.
We had some great times with loads of fresh snow, partly blue skies and a lot of Dope shredding.
We hear ski patrol Sebastian talk about the importance of safety gear and breaking down which skiing gear is optimal for backcountry.
Ski patrol Rasmus shows us how to perform an extended column test, to check snow stability and therefore current avalanche situation.
Pro skier Jesaias shows us some neat drops and chest deep powder runs.
In order to create a better skiing segment, the skiing part is filmed under the course of to days whilst the touring and “How to backcountry ski” part is filmed during one day.
