Packing List: Skiing in Bariloche, Argentina.

argentinapackstraightscroppedI just returned from skiing in Bariloche, Argentina with the Oakley Field Testing team! It was most definitely one of the best trips I have taken in my life, and a memorable next-step into ski mountaineering. It required a lot more gear than I was used to traveling with, but I used every piece of equipment that I packed. Here is a list of what I brought in case you might find it helpful for a ski touring trip of your own! I was skiing both resort and in the backcountry. Our accommodations were very safe, so I felt fine about bringing my electronics on the trip.

Armada VJJ’s
Armada TSTw’s with AT bindings and Skins
Tecnica Cochise Alpine Touring Boots
