Whether you're on dawn patrol, enjoying a backcountry hut trip with friends or simply taking advantage of your local resort's uphill skiing policy, touring is a great way to get outside, put in some cardio and have a ton of fun on the ride down. As participation in backcountry skiing and splitboarding grows, so has the availability and quality of gear. From fast and light peak bagging spring setups to deep winter sled shredding, there's a wide range of products available to make your next adventure an unforgettable one.

Ski Touring

Pick your own adventure - that's the theme for this season's alpine touring highlight. With more boot options than ever before and the introduction of the innovative Salomon Shift bindings that further blur the lines between inbounds and out of bounds setups, it's easier than ever to get a taste of the backcountry.

Splitboarding

Snowboard brands are making more splitboard models than ever before, available in a wide variety of different shapes, sizes, and purposes. From camber-dominant chargers to snow-surf inspired designs, evo alone carries almost 30 different unique models. All these shapes, along with the greater availability of pre-cut skins and more refined, durable, and lighter-weight bindings make it easy to get out there and find your own line--whatever your riding style.

Outerwear, Layering & Accessories

Backcountry preparedness is the key to your safety and success, so having the right layers and accessories is essential. From super waterproof and packable weather protection to warm and breathable midlayers, being able to control your temperature on-demand (whether that’s warming you up or helping evacuate moisture) is key. That puffy you carried up in your pack or on your back needs to be super warm, but unlike your street puffy, needs to breathe and pack down small, too. On the outside, your jacket and pants need to move with you, while maintaining a high level of breathability and waterproofing. Depending on the weather, the right combination of eye and hand wear can make all the difference, too. Shop our collection of backcountry approved outerwear, layers and accessories below.

Backcountry Safety

Several new beacon options and lighter, easier to operate avalanche airbags highlight this year’s batch of new backcountry safety gear. But none of this stuff works without a partner and the knowledge to use it properly. Having the gear is only half of the equation. Knowing how to use it, how to analyze terrain and snowpack, and which resources to check prior to departure is the other half. For starters, we'd recommend taking an avalanche awareness class (offered for free throughout the winter at evo Seattle, evo Portland, and evo Denver locations). Follow that up with an AIARE Level 1 course, and regularly practice using your avalanche rescue tools with the people you'll be touring with. And finally, get out there and explore! To help you "know before you go," we've rounded up top gear picks along with a number of useful resources including upcoming clinics, evoTrips, and free avalanche awareness classes for riders of all levels.
