I live at Big White and Backcountry ski everyday here as Im the physio on the MTN thus work outside of skiing hrs. Last year I was able to hit the 150 day mark! I take many people backcountry here as it has some good terrain for newbies and also some decent stuff for the european travellers that are used to off piste.
With so many days on skis, I go thru gear (especially gear that isn't up to snuff) quickly, for example last year the only item I did not have to return were my G3 Empires. The list of gear that had to be returned for warranty are:
Arcteryx Alpha SV Jacket, Beta AR gloves, Procline boot (wow what a boot for the UP), G3 Ion 12, G3 high traction skins.
In 2016 I rode my moto thru South America and took in the absolutely amazing BC opportunities there in the Andes . I don't have any ski write ups anywhere but did write a blog on the moto trip but that was more travel and moto focused.....anyways I would love to be a gear tester or reviewer if you are interested?
Cheers and Thanks
