Having skins that don’t function well can really affect the enjoyment of a day of ski touring. Thus, when I got my new BCA Climbing Skins this year, I quickly realized that this was a game-changing piece of gear. North Cascades Mountain Guides' Larry Goldie reports.
There's no better endorsement of our BCA products than that of a professional mountain guide. We are pleased to share this gear review by Larry Goldie of North Cascades Mountain Guides (NCMG) of our BCA Hybrid skins written February 15, 2021. NCMG operates under Special Use Permits with the Okanogan-Wenatchee, and Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forests, and is an equal opportunity outdoor recreation service provider.
When we do our morning gear check before snowmobiling up the North Cascades Highway, the one thing I always double-check with folks is “Do you have your skins?”. This is one of the true showstopper pieces of equipment that we use and forgetting them is an easy way to derail your entire day. Having skins that don’t function well is a close second when it comes to affecting the enjoyment of a day of ski touring. Thus, when I got my new BCA Hybrid climbing skins this year, I quickly realized that this was a game-changing piece of gear.
All in all, BCA has knocked this one out of the park and I can wholeheartedly recommend the BCA Climbing Skins to anyone in the market for a new set of skins.
