MTN Approach review - Will Jackways June 16 2014
Last season we hooked up with kiwi shred legend Will Jackways, and gave him some MTN Approach backcountry gear. He has been using it on his travels around the world this past summer, and was kind enough to let us know his thoughts about the system.
This past winter away I had the privilege of using the MTN Approach gear on a trip up to Mt Cook. I was really blown away with how useful the MTN approach kit was and it really made such a huge difference in accessing the terrain we wanted.
The ski's were super easy to use and worked well with staying on top of the snow, it was fast to unpack and reload , and the poles along with the backpack are a great combination overall.
Having a system like this is so useful and practical to have in the backcountry and will open up a huge range of accessible terrain in the future.
Its light, easy to use and provides a great alternative to having to use a heavy and stiff split board .
I cant wait to get out there this season on my MNT Approach and start exploring our amazing back yard.
Thanks MTN Approach you rock, 10 / 10 !
