You don't skin up steep, snowy summits simply for the exercise, although it does give you strong legs to charge downhill with all your backcountry skiing essentials inside the Lowe Alpine Women's Descent ND23 Backpack. The smaller option in Lowe Alpine's massive collection of skiing backpacks, the Descent has enough space for quick alpine tours. After packing your hydration reservoir and avalanche safety gear, this pack will still stow a compressible midlayer, extra gloves, goggles, and a lunch. There are multiple access points to the main compartment so you can get in the backpack whether you have skis attached or not.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
