What's in your backpack?

What kind of stuff do you bring with you when you ride? Just wondering if I'm missing any nice-to-haves from my kit. Here's what I've got.
  • pocket knife
  • water
  • phone

Unless you're in the backcountry or some big ass resort, I don't think you need much. Water, knife, some snacks, and a shovel should do it. Make sure you have plenty of lighters too. You know, in case you get stranded on the resort.

The funniest thing is, here in Mi our local hills are 400 ft vertical at most and some riders wear their backpacks. That's just

Hmm, what's the knife for?

I just picked up the helipack for the bigger resorts and also so I don't have to buy food at the lodge.

I figured extra layer, gloves, food, bladder, phone and keys. Blow up doll is just gonna be strapped to my frontside.

My backpack just holds my extra clothes for after boarding and stays in my car while I'm on the mountain. Of course, if I was doing some crazy BC stuff, that would be a different story entirely.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

No kidding...last year I saw a mom and a daughter sporting all new sh!t including matching backpacks on the bunny. They were noob's. Too add to it...our local hill is like a midwest speed bump. Only 19 runs and 350 vert ft. Maybe they keep over sized compacts stuffed in there, and that once a month back up gear. I thought it was funny.
