What would you need a shovel for? Or a avalanche beacon? Do avalanches happen a lot there. How would you use a shovel to dig yourself out?
Harder marked runs are controlled, back country terrain isn't. Being able to go down bc terrain is the least of your worries. Listen to shredlife you can't just buy gear, ride hard trails and assume you're ready for the backcountry it's a whole different beast
