The Re-Gram: Gear Test Week Day 1 social media highlights

With eight inches of snow accumulating over the course of the first day and 11 inches in the recent 48 hour period, the 2017 Gear Test Week at Powder Mountain, Utah started out with a bang. Gear tests are more fun and more productive when the conditions are good, and day 1 saw testers getting after it on steeps, trees and open pow fields that are representative of Powder Mountain. Here are a few Instagram selects of the powder revelries.
