Ski season is upon us and so are the winter storms, bringing in daydream-worthy forecasts that have powder hounds antsy for epic ski days. Whether you’re a backcountry explorer earning your turns or you prefer to stick to the resort and lap the corduroy, the Peak Performance Ski Kits collection has a little something stylish and functional to meets every skier’s needs.
Backcountry Peak Performance 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 a high-quality waterproof membrane like GORE-TEX or FUTURELIGHT, 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.

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.
