The Gear You Need for Backcountry Skiing, On Sale

Backcountry

Backcountry skiing is one of the most rewarding ways to get your turns in. Not only can you avoid the crowds and oftentimes find fresh powder, but you can also get a workout in and explore the natural areas close to home. The downside, like other winter sports, is that backcountry ski gear is expensive. But luckily, there's an easy solution for that. Backcountry is currently running its Winter Semi-Annual Sale, which has an entire section dedicated to skiing. Best of all, the savings are probably deeper than the powder you'll get into at up to 50 percent off. If you need a nudge in the right direction, Fischer's Ranger 130 boot, Backcountry x Black Diamond's collaboration GlideLite Skins and Sweet Protection's Switcher MIPS helmet are all on sale.
