Backcountry Snowboarding

Backcountry Equipment 

Getting out of bounds, away from it all, hunting new terrain and powder fields – it's what skiing and snowboarding is all about to some riders. The freedom, scenery and fresh untracked snow just can’t be rivalled in a resort scenario – but backcountry touring comes with its own unique risks and challenges.

To overcome and avoid these obstacles and potential pitfalls, you need to make sure that you’re equipped with the knowledge, the training, and the right kit. At Freeze, we’ve been skiing and split-boarding in the backcountry for years. We know what makes quality backcountry equipment and we’ve been out there trying it and testing it in real world conditions.

With that insight and experience we’ve put together a wide range of top-notch equipment from the biggest and best brands in the outdoor industry. You can choose from a massive selection of transceivers, probes, shovels, crampons, ice axes, touring skins, head torches, backpacks, airbags, mountaineering kit, snow shoes, snow analysis kit and more, from the brands that we trust with our safety when we’re touring – Black Diamond, MSR, BCA, Mammut, Ortovox, G3, Spark R&D, Petzl and more.
