Get out of trouble with this essential equipment for backcountry riding.

Riding in the backcountry is fun, but doing it safely takes more preparation than sitting on a lift. Step one: Get yourself a beacon and take an avalanche safety class from an AIARE-certified instructor. Step two: Gear up with these packs, shovels, probes, and other winter gear.
