With Christmas now in the rear view mirror, forget about fighting for the deal on that new TV at Walmart and instead put your hard-earned holiday cash towards something much more important - backcountry gear!
This week we're celebrating the end of 2015 with our annual Backcountry Boxing Week Sale with 40% off at both our Whistler and Squamish shop locations as well as online. Remember that all orders over $50 qualify for free shipping within Canada, so if you've got relatives on the other side of the country or have been hunting for a deal on some new some new gear or apparel, this week is your chance.
To help get you started with the Backcountry Boxing Week Sale we've done a round up of the some of the best deals on ski touring gear, apparel and accessories. For deepest discounts on clothing check out our discontinued lines from Arcteryx, Icebreaker and Black Diamond, with regular stock at up to 25% off. We've also got ski touring equipment (boots, bindings and skins) at up to 40% off.
Here's the highlights
Ski Touring Boots
Dynafit Mercury TF - $495 (regularly $795)
The most important piece of equipment to get right with ski touring (or any skiing really) are the boots. Dynafit boots tend to fit narrower feet, so if you have a compatible foot the Mercury TF is an excellent balance between weight savings and downhill performance. For boots that are a tad wider (and stiffer) check out the Dynafit TLT 6, also on sale in mens and womens models.
Ski Touring Bindings
Dynafit TLT Radical FT - $449 (regularly $629)
If you're looking to be spending more time in the backcountry than the resort, then tech bindings are the way forward. At just 599g per binding with a release value of 5-12, the Radical FT is the standard for freeride touring. Available with a 110mm or 130mm brake, these bindings will get you out to the deepest backcountry spots. Looking for something sturdier for resort laps with higher release value? The Dynafit Beast 16 is on sale at its lowest price ever at $495.
Black Diamond Deployment Hoody (Womens) - $131.99 (regularly $219.99)
When warmth and breathability is paramount, combining the insulation of merino wool on the inside with the durability of nylon on the outside, the Deployment Hoody offers versatility ahead of most mid-layers in its class. It also looks great, making it a great piece for casual mountain town wear. For our puffy layers take a look at the Arcteryx Atom LT Hoody and Cerium SL Jacket.
Icebreaker Atom Legless Women's - $71.99 (regularly $119.99)
Layering up against the cold has never been easier with Icebreaker Atom baselayers. With merino wool insulation with added Lycra for stretch and Nylon for strength, the Atom is your go-to next-to-skin layer for cold days in the resort or the backcountry. Check out more of our Icebreaker items on sale here.
Arcteryx Alpha SV Gloves - $180 (regularly $300)
Spending this much on a pair of gloves can seem excessive at first, but the Alpha SV glove is built to last for years. Not days, not seasons, these gloves will keep your hands warm, dry and protected well past the lifetime of your new skis. With unmatched dexterity for placing critical protection in the ice or weathering the wet coastal snowstorms, the Alpha SV will never let you down. A removable and washable Polartec liner means they will stay fresh for years to come.
