10 Must-Have Items in Our Ski Touring Kit

From eye protection to bibs to energy chews, we reach for these products again and again.

Beacon, shovel, probe: There are some things every responsible skier needs to carry in the backcountry. But after the snow safety and hard goods, there are the essentials that tag along in your pack for every tour. Here’s what’s in our ski-obsessed contributing writer’s kit.

Bonus: Need a post-run beer? Our writer recommends New Image Brewing’s Coriolis Effect ($15 for a six-pack). This floral and hoppy New Zealand style IPA balances tropical notes with the dry and bitter ones, and will have you frothing for a handle (a Kiwi pint) at the end of your powder run.
