2016 Gear Test Week: Day 2 Dispatch

As testers rolled into Powder Mountain for Day 2 of Gear Test Week, they were greeted with sunny skies and warm temperatures, a total 180 from Tuesday’s blustery dumpage. Skiers snagged their picks for the second round of fat ski-testing and were mowing through Tuesday’s accumulation as quickly as their bindings could be adjusted.

Before the powder turned heavy from the warming temps, a dedicated crew of testers headed out to the nearby Lightning Ridge, where they were able ski and skin on their choice of 2016’s touring lineup. And although the coverage on James Peak was too sparse for shredding, Lightning Ridge, which offers 700 acres of accessible terrain, provided the powder bowls and lines necessary for a few face shots, skintracks and (unfortunately, undocumented) diggers.
