Time to prep for La Nina- Part 2 Equipment

posted in: Uncategorized 2

When a winter is as cold and deep as La Ninas are, your equipment needs the capability to handle the volume of faceshots.


K2 Hardsides

La Sportiva Hi5


Dynafit Speed



Dynafit TLT Performance

Scarpa Maestrale


BD Ascension


This is a good guideline of gear that will take you from the slack country of the resorts to the summits and high routes of the great alpine ranges. Clothes and kits next week;)

    I just bought a ski kit that will hopefully keep me as versatile as your suggestions… I wish I would have found your post earlier…

      Hi Chris,

      It looks like a solid kit for side country and some longer tours. If weight becomes an issue I believe the Factors are tech binding compatible and you can eventually upgrade to a tech binding, Have fun on your new set up and be safe out there!
