BMA team recommends :

  • Travel light, take your ski boots on board the plane, your checked in bag will be lighter of 4 kilos
  • Do not pack too many clothes for after ski, casual and warm clothes are the best
  • If you are traveling with your own ABS bag, do not forget to have the travel manifest. That could avoid some troubles at the security check at the airport. And do not hesitate to be ahead of schedule for departure.

The team of Big Mountain Adventures trust and recommend Mountain Hardwear to keep warm and hot ! here are the gears we recommend for this trip :

Vestes :

Mountain HardWear Compulsion 3L Jacket

Cette veste trois couches, vous permet une grande respirabilité. Elle maintient au chaud, pendant que la transpiration s’évacue. A porter avec une petite doudoune fine et un maillot technique (3 couches).

Pour les jours de grands froids la Nilas Jacket vous tiendra bien au chaud pendant les longues journées de ride.


Pantalon :

Mountain HardWear Compulsion 3L Pants

Dans le même esprit que la veste, trois couches DRY.Q à porter avec un collant, parfait pour la randonnée et les grands froids, grande ouverture aux genoux, et option salopette pour les jours de poudreuse.


Accessoires :

Mountain HardWear Compulsion Gloves

Pour les gants, on vous laisse l’embarras du choix ici mais nous on aura tendance à opter pour ceux là, en cuir, chauds, ils nécessitent peu d’entretien et sont très robustes



White Doctor TW10

Depuis cette année on est partenaire avec White Doctor, leur philosophie est simple, on revient à l’essentiel, un ski, une conception, une qualité de fabrication et ça nous a séduit.

Pour la poudreuse on partira avec un ski fun, double spat, 100mm sous le pied au minimum, parfait pr la pow, et pour la rando




Marker Duke ou Dynafit Radical FT

Pour les fixations, vous avez soit la possibilité d’opter pour une fixation type Marker Duke qui permettent de skier gros, tout en débrayant la fixation pour la montée, et accepte des chaussures de ski classiques. Sinon le must sera les fixations Dynafit ultra light mais qui nécessitent des chaussures avec inserts.
