If you want to design the perfect kit for backcountry skiers and snowboarders, a really good place to start is with the people that live in their gear: professional backcountry guides. So we turned to our friends up north, the Canadian Powder Guides, aka Capow Guiding. Led by the inimitable Marty Schaffer, the Caposse is a band of professional guides whose mission is to merge the worlds of backcountry education and stoke-filled powder shredding.
The Capow Guides are incredible sources of inspiration for design not only because they have specific needs themselves, but also because they have thousands of hours of observing clients using different gear in the backcountry. It was from that well of experience and observations that we drew from to design the Capow Kit.
