Ski mountaineering, or “skimo” if you’re one of the cool kids, has been on our minds here at Dispatch Radio ever since we sat down with Joe Howdyshell in our “Pre-Stoke” show. So I went out to Salt Lake City to check out the latest and greatest (and lightest) gear available, and in some cases not yet available, for getting up and down a hill of snow. We’ll have a full report on all of soon. For now, all this talk of ski weight got me wondering about my own backcountry setup. How much does this shit weigh, anyway?
