Gear, technique, fashion, jargon, guests, and assorted spray from folks who know how to earn it in the backcountry. The world's best backcountry skiing podcast.

Cody Townsend cements himself into the ski mountaineering lore (only you can define ski mountaineering) as his quest to ski The Fifty continues. This season, Tonswend has released videos documenting more classics, including a three-part Bugs to Rogers Traverse and a smattering of lines, including the Skyladder and a return to The Spinx in Alaska. 

Cody also chats about the season at hand and his progress with the project, and as it comes down to spicier and logistically more complex lines, how the Fifty Project could extend several years out.

Then there's the gear. Doug and Cody discuss the evolution of Salomon's touring boot lineup and the release of the new QST Echo 106 ski, a more touring-oriented QST.
