Ski Machine Pack

The ski Machine: Our Alpine Machine packs modified to carry skis and our Avalanche Gear Pocket.  This includes the New Day Rising and all top load Alpine Machines.


After you order we will discuss the set up of your pack. As shown below, some customers want a ski specific pack, while others want a climbing pack that can carry skis. The Avalanche Gear Pocket is included with the Ski Machine. Customers who already own an alpine Machine pack, with compression straps, can just order the Avy Gear pocket and I'll customize it to fit.
