When starting up the skintrack at 6am watching the snow blow through the bubble of light from your headlamp, throw on the Mammut Alvier HS Hooded jacket and lead the pack. Gore-Tex C-Knit material provides exceptional protection from the elements high up in the alpine, and the helmet-compatible hood offers extra protection from the biting wind and shards of ice that attack your face when breaking trail up the long approach. If somehow you begin to overheat in the arctic conditions, underarm ventilation can dump heat in a flash and allow for easy temperature regulation. After reaching the summit, take a photo of the sunrise over the mountain peaks and stash your phone in one of the many pockets available. Then, connect the powder skirt and the jacket to pant connection system to prevent snow from sneaking into the jacket while carving turns in the steep and deep, and drop in.

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.
