Backcountry Ski Kits

When it comes to skiing in the backcountry, while the equipment in your backpack and knowledge in your head is absolutely crucial, choosing the appropriate apparel is also necessary. You want gear that fits correctly, protects you from the elements and is designed for the demands and terrain of the backcountry that you may encounter. You want gear that is crafted with Gore-Tex® or another high-quality waterproof membrane that is sure to keep you protected from the weather. Another essential feature to look for when choosing backcountry ski wear is the RECCO Avalanche Rescue System. Products equipped with RECCO® actually have small, band-aid sized reflectors located within the product. This passive device does not require any batteries and can help rescuers find you should you be caught in an avalanche. Even with RECCO® equipped outerwear, you should still use a beacon or transceiver while exploring in the backcountry.

For those spending long days in the backcountry discovering new terrain, Peak Performance has a series sure to meet your backcountry needs. Equipped with RECCO® and crafted with Gore-Tex®, below are the top backcountry ski kits for men and women for 2018.

Resort Ski Kits

A day in the resort calls for comfortable gear that’s also got a flare of style so while you’re ripping laps under the chair, you look good while doing it. Because there is almost always a chalet located on the mountain, you have a refuge where you can go to warm up or take a break if the weather turns. For this reason, it isn’t 100% necessary to be kitted out in a full Gore-Tex® ski suit allowing you to rock a down jacket for extra warmth on days when needed. 

Often times you can find the ideal ski kit for your resort routine and it will be equipped with RECCO® reflectors like the Alaska Ski Jacket, the Hakuba Ski Pants and the Alaska Melange Ski Jacket. This is a bonus and gives you that extra bit of security if you are skiing in a mountain resort where avalanches are not frequent but are a possibility. 

Other features you can find in a variety of the Peak Performance gear is their Hipe fabric which is breathable, seam-sealed, waterproof and windproof. There are four levels of the Hipe fabrics with the base being Hipe and the most technical being Hipe Core which is found in the followin gkits below excluding the Alaska SKi Jacket and the Alaska Melange Ski Jacket.
