I live in Ottawa Ontario and just finished applying to some BC schools. Two programs I applied for are adventure and mountain related programs. I am REQUIRED by the program to have a touring set up for our expeditions (yes id be getting a degree for this, hard to believe i know)
Anyway, school is expensive enough as it is and im not looking to break the bank on this set up, that being said i want something that is going to do me well.
I know little to nothing about alpine touring and backcountry skiing and would love some help to get me set up to go shred some (long awaited) powder.
Im 5'5" 140lbs
will be skiing at places like kicking horse and fernie
Along with skis bindings boots and skins...what other equipment should i be getting for touring and back country skiing? (besides probes beacons and shovels)
