2020 Gear Test Week Instagram Recap

The 2020 Gear Test Week may be over, but memories of a week fueled by powder, sun and fun are still fresh in the minds of testers and editors. The work at Backcountry Magazine headquarters located in Jeffersonville, Vermont, however, is just beginning and over the next few months our team will work to organize and disseminate reviews from over 40 splitboard and ski testers.

To keep us moving ahead as we compile the 2020 Gear Guide, out this fall, we look back on the good times captured on camera and seen on the Instagram feeds of our testers.

Here are a few of our favorite moments.
