Show Description

Get started skiing the backcountry on alpine touring (AT) gear. AT gear has an advantage over traditional telemark gear in that it allows skiers to release their heels when climbing and lock down their heels when skiing down. To maximize fun and safety, this guide includes chapters on: clothing, gear, ascents, descents, terrain, weather, navigation, avalanches, safety, expedition planning and packing, and survival techniques.
