Keeping it Safe in the Backcountry. What's in Your Pack?

Winter has come in like a lion to the Cascades of Central Oregon. Soon all you winter fun hogs will be heading into our backcountry. So what should be in your backpack and the packs of your partners in powder? Not long ago we asked globally tested backcountry guide and local David Marchi to take us through the essentials of his personal backpack; and what an education that was. David has some great information to share, and with the huge dump of snow that kicked off December, we couldn’t think of a more timely and important video to show you all again. Thinking of the perfect gift for the Backcountry enthusiast on your list? How about a pack filled with the contents from this video? No matter the snow sport, it literally could be the gift of life, and just in time for Winter, Christmas, and Holiday gift giving.

Our thanks to Diversified Heating & Cooling, Mother’s Juice Cafe, and PowderHouse Ski & Snowboard for their support in making these community inspired videos possible.
