AMGA And OR Present: Ski Touring Crampons


AMGA and OR Team Up To Create Backcountry Skiing Video Series | Ski Touring Crampons

Ski touring crampons gives backcountry tourers extra grip while ascending on firm snow. Attach them to your bindings before you need them and you’ll have a much better day.

This is final video of an eight video series created by the American Mountain Guide Association and Outdoor Research. The series focuses on backcountry skiing technique and safety. It is designed to “raise awareness and reduce the risks associated with traveling in the backcountry.”

Watch as the AMGA and OR team up to bring you a short video on ski touring crampons:

Thanks to IFMGA Guides Margaret Wheeler and Jeff Ward for the tips.
