Spring Touring

May 12, 2015

Hidden amoungst the towering peaks in the Mont Blanc Massif, at an altitude of 2750 meters, is Morgan's backcountry hut. Despite its name it's actually quite an impressive building. Morgan and his friends took of advantage of the nice weather and toured up to the property to ready it for the summer season. Whilst they were there they took advantage of the area's abundant snow and bagged some turns. Weighing only 1500 grams per ski our feedback from Morgan is that the 15/16 Ego Trip Evolution is the perfect tool for long hikes and freeride skiing.

Views to die for, unlimited lines and not another soul on the mountain... what's not to like about ski touring in May?
