What is it that draws us to snowy peaks, windswept mountain passes and places above the clouds? As the new year finds its footing there’s a calling to seek altitude and draw lines amongst alpine trees and the freshest powder.
The journeys we take to white slopes becomes an annual pilgrimage, as the days draw closer we double check snow reports, depths, chance of clear skies. Maybe it’ll all come together, a fresh dump followed by clear blue skies, crackling fires and good company. It’s these moments found on ridges, runs and banks that inspire us and keep us coming back for more.
For our winter escapes it’s the travel worn comforting layers and reliable warmth that gets the nod. We’ve compiled our top picks of the gear to get you there, as we journey to the mountains.
