**** PLEASE NOTE ****

We prefer you to pack using a small to medium sized duffel bag rather than the large hockey sized bags. The large ones are awkward and often difficult to fit into the helicopter.


Avalanche transceiver: 457 kHz new single frequency only. Please buy a new beacon if you have an old one. This is your life. Many old ones are not compatible with new three antenna transceivers. All guests must wear and know how to use an avalanche transceiver. Instruction will be provided on guided trips. We can arrange a rental for those who need to.

Avalanche shovel: Everyone must carry a shovel at all times. We do not sell or rent these so you must either purchase or borrow one. We don’t much like the plastic ones. Avalanche probe: everyone should have one. (ski pole probes are not acceptable).

Harness: All skiers must have their own harness + locking carabineers.

Rope: Guides will provide ropes. If you are on a self-guided trip, please make sure that there are at least two ropes per group.

Rentals: Check your gear before coming to Golden. Boots must fit bindings, skins must fit skis etc. Please don’t buy new boots just for the trip! It is possible to rent gear in Golden but contact us ahead of time so we can make sure you will get the gear you need. Your ultimate enjoyment of your trip could be jeopardized if your gear is inappropriate or improperly fitted.
