G3 Alpinist Climbing Skin

When it comes to climbing skins, there's no room for existential questions that sound a whole lot like "to stick or not to stick"--the role is simple: stay sticky. And while its name may be a dead giveaway, the G3 Alpinist Climbing Skin accomplishes the aforementioned task with flying colors. Additionally, the Alpinist Climbing Skin boasts a newly redesigned, lower-profile (than in previous editions) stainless steel hands that assure a better ski fit and reduced tip-catch. However, in keeping with its original design, the Alpinist features plush nylon material that bites into everything from soft powder to nasty, compacted skintracks. G3's classic Alpinist got a facelift this season with a removable Ripstrip on the adhesive side, which reduces skin-to-skin adhesion for easier pull-aparts during transitions, but it can also be removed when you need some extra sticking power if your skin glue starts to ice over, or gets a little dirty drying in the hut. The skins are treated with a hydrophobic coating (that's also PFOA free) to prevent ice build up, and their glue is rated to perform in temperatures down to -22F.

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
