Gear Test Week Arrives at Powder Mountain

POWDER MOUNTAIN, UTAH The 2017 Backcountry Magazine Gear Test Week kicked off yesterday, with over 200 pair of skis arriving to be tested over the next week. More than 50 testers flocked to Powder Mountain to give Backcountry Magazine their blood, sweat and toenails in pursuit of finding the best of next year’s skis and boots.

And when the testers aren’t on the slopes examining a ski’s shredding properties, they are partaking in après libations and general shenanigans that would make their mothers cringe.

Check out more photos and updates from the test week here, on our Facebook page and on Instagram at @backcountrymag.
