Backcountry skiing can be invigorating and challenging. If you like to rough it in the wild, you need a special arrangement of tools and supplies to keep you and your buddies safe. Amazon.com carries many different kinds of backcountry gear so you can be fully equipped the next time you hit the trail.
We have everything you need to prepare yourself for your next expedition, including backcountry gear made for avalanche safety. We have a variety of beacons and transceivers to choose from, made from reliable and sturdy materials so you can find others or be found in the event of an avalanche. The displays can tell you the distance to the buried skier and the relative position of the skier within the snow. We carry beacons and transceivers from such trusted brands as Pieps, Ortovox, and Mammut. We also carry a wide variety of quickly assembling and disassembling snow probes to help you in your search.
We also have a wide variety of backcountry gear to help you get up to the right slope. Our attachable cleats will give you the traction to climb even packed-down, slick snow to get you to your desired altitude. If you’re climbing in your skis, we also have many climbing skins to make your trek a little easier. Climbing skins attach to the bottom of your skis so they can slide forward easily, but provide friction if they slide backwards, making it easier to find traction when you’re climbing up slopes.
If you’re looking for a sturdy and reliable snow shovel, we carry those, too. Choose from lightweight folding models that are easy to carry with you, or heavy-duty snow shovels that can really move some snow. We even have models that come with saws or have saw teeth built into the shovel design to make this the ultimate, all-purpose survival tool.
Find all the backcountry gear you need to keep you and your ski partners safe at Amazon.com.
