Our last talk before the holidays! 

"Winter isn't just coming, it's upon us! And as John Snow would say: "a warm, dry, and safe day in the snow (and rain) starts with gear that is properly maintained and correctly used". Or something like that. I never watched Game of Thrones.

So join Nick (virtually) to learn how to make sure all that snow gear you unceremoniously threw into the closet at the end of last you will treat you well (or at least better than you treated it) for the rest of this year.
We'll cover cleaning, conditioning, choosing, and wearing your whole kit. From toque to toe socks!


And, as a bonus, I might go over some basic hard gear (ski, board, boot, etc.) maintenance as well. Just gotta find an old iron somewhere....


See you there!
Nick "The (can't plan any right now, thanks COVID) Trip Planner" Abel
