How does one get into back country travel?
I'm getting tired of the resorts. I want to get out. The only issue is money
My wife and I and a few friends have done Cat trips and the only issue is selecting gear, there seems to be so many options.
Can my Burton Rulers be used with showshoes? I'd rather not invest in a split board this year, it would be pure day hikes. Obviously the probes, PLD's, etc. are a given but actually getting up the ridges, what is the best bet?
Sorry for the total n00b questions here. I'm in NorCal if that helps any.
