You know how to cover some serious distance in the backcountry, but you're not about to slog through a long sufferfest for a subpar descent. Lightweight on the skintrack and reliable when you're crushing steep lines in the alpine, the Fritschi Vipec Evo 12 is the ultimate weapon of choice for tackling big objectives and ripping them to shreds on the way down. The heel-locking lever gives you the confidence and security you need to crush the lines you just battled your way up, while a front lateral release provides reliable release values in both ski and walk mode for added safety when you're skiing or get caught in a slide while skinning. Weighing in at just over a pound per binding, the Vipec EVOs keep it light on the skintrack, while a three-level heel riser accommodates changing slope angles as you skin across flat meadows, mellow aprons, and steep headwalls.

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.
