Another Example Of Why Ski Straps Are A Backcountry Skier's Best Friend...

“What do you do when a Marker Kingpin toe pin shears off? If you can’t strap it, scrap it!”

The good folks at Sawtooth Mountain Guides showing us another use of the ever versatile and inevitably clutch Polyurethane Ski Strap. These easy to carry items can be used to tie down or hold together nearly anything and time and time again prove themselves indispensable in the backcountry.

Its an absolute workhorse of a tool, that weighs almost nothing. Whether building a ski sled for a rescue in the backcountry, strapping your skis together for an effortless carry, or improvising fix when your toe pin shears…ski straps have been used by ski bums for decades and will continue to be used long into the future.
