Combining a shovel, probe, and pack, the K2
Snowboarding Hyak Kit is critical gear for winter travelers in the backcountry. The minimalist 15 liter Hyak pack is large enough to carry your gear for a day trip. Ski and snowboard carrying straps give you the option to boot pack in comfort. The lightweight shovel and probe are housed in their own interior pockets for rapid deployment in a rescue situation. Before you are venture beyond the ski area boundary, you'll need an avalanche beacon and the K2 Snowboarding Hyak Kit. And—most importantly—you'll need to acquire the skills to use these tools.
