The Inertia

Ever wondered what gear makes the cut for a pro skier during a day in the backcountry? Duct tape and extra ski straps, to name a couple of items. In this recent video from Salomon TV, Cody Townsend and Josh Daiek break down what they put in their packs for either a couple of laps in the sidecountry or a full day of backcountry touring. As Episode Four of Salomon’s “How To Get Into Backcountry Skiing”, this video (and the other six that make up the series) should be on the watch list of anyone wanting to get out this winter. Old dogs might learn a few new tricks from Episode Four as well.


Only the best. We promise.
