The 2014/2015 Gear Guide

Gear Guide 2014/15

Gear Guide 2014/15

169 skis, 102 jackets and pants, 85 boots and a whole lot of clobber… It can only be our annual Gear Guide!

As well as some 120 pages dedicated to gear reviews, buying tips and know-how, we’ve managed to squeeze in our usual mix of backcountry knowledge, expert columns, riveting ski stories and stunning photography, including:

  • Decision-making traps in backcountry terrain
  • Sniffing out powder stashes and ski tours in small but perfectly formed Meiringen
  • Tracking down killer shots at Arc’teryx’s King of the Dolomites competition
  • A Day in the Life of climbing bum-turned-sponsored skier Tom Grant
  • Graham Bell takes a look at the work that goes into prepping the perfect ski race course
  • Simon Ashton asks whether Sauze d’Oulx is the ‘Essex of the Alps’?
  • Patrick Thorne investigates the fastest non-mechanised sport in the world (yes, we’re talking speed skiing)
  • Telemark skills: how to tele rails. It can be done, trust us.
  • Exploring little-known Tomamu, Japan

If you want to get your hands on our biggest issue of the year, you can buy it direct from our online shop, or from good newsagents.
