Backcountry, The Only Way to Travel

Just a little over a year ago I had a friend of mine invite me on a backcountry hut ski trip.  At this point I only had a vague idea of how an AT setup worked.  I did, however, have almost 20 years of skiing experience, unfortunately this was East Coast, inbounds, mostly groomer skiing experience.  Obviously the best way to learn was to do it with a 40+ pound pack of gear on my back!  So I rented an AT setup, and was off to Keith's Hut in B.C., Canada.  After that trip I was hooked and began tirelessly scouring the internet for a cheap used AT rig.  A year later and I'm still doing whatever I can to avoid getting on a lift.

Here are a few shots from skiing this past holiday season.
