Welcome to PowderAlps!

Powderalps is the place for backcountry & off-piste snow and avalanche safety gear, tools, clothing accessories and learning, as well as ski touring adventure.

We're a group of passionate backcountry powder hounds who've lived a little, survived a little, and know the value of a wise head, good safety systems and reliable, top-notch gear.

This is our place where you can commune, buy great kit, learn vital safety tips, and find great adventures with the best guides in the business, in the world's most fab places.

Of course, it's all about you. We want your feedback, engagement and passion too. Backcountry riding is about shredding, riding and skinning with your mates and doing it to smile, knock one back and live another day.

And for all of you old enough to remember Hill Street Blues - "be careful out there".
