Traeger PTG+ Grill
Nothing celebrates warm weather like grilling, and nothing makes grilling/ tailgating easier than Traeger’s new Portable Tabletop Grill. The PTG+ wood pellet grill plugs into any standard 110v outlet, so you can bring your wood-fired taste on the go. Whether you are enjoying the last few lift powered runs of the season, or touring your way through the spring and summer, finish the day off in the lot properly with your Traeger PTG+ Grill.
Nitro Nomad Splitboard
Splitboarding popularity has recently shot through roof, yet the barrier to entry remains exceedingly high. The Nitro Nomad Splitboard was created to help change that. The Nomad was designed to be the most affordable split on the market, all without sacrificing any tech or performance. Equipped with Nitro’s “Flat-Out Rocker” and “Power Pods” the Nomad is your go anywhere do anything split. Extend your season long after the lifts stop spinning and do it without hurting your wallet on the Nitro Nomad.
Spark R&D Surge Bindings
Two things should be considered when you’re looking at new splitboard bindings: weight and function. Unlike resort riding, most time is spent in touring mode on the way to a descent, meaning it is vital to have equipment that is light and easy to use. At a mere 1.68 lbs per binding, those countless steps on the way to a line will conserve much needed energy for the main event and when you finally get there, the ease of the Tesla T1 system makes it a snap to transition between tour and ride mode. When you’re out there, your attention should be directed forward, not down at your feet.
G3 Alpinist Splitboard Skins
G3 creates backcountry equipment for guides and avalanche professionals who make the mountains their office. These skins are, hands-down, without question, the best, and better yet, their length is designed to fit your splitboard right out of the box. Simply trim to width with the super easy included tool.
Just because temperatures are rising and snowfall is slowing doesn’t mean avalanche dangers are no longer prevalent. The Tracker3 from BCA is not only the thinnest multiple-antenna avalanche transceiver on the market, but “Signal Suppression” and “Big Picture” modes designed for multiple-victim searching make the Tracker3 the most technically advanced beacon out there as well. Don’t skimp on your gear, and if you don’t know, don’t go.
