Ben Briggs | A Steeper Perspective
Ben is at the forefront of a new generation of ski mountaineers chasing ever bigger lines in the best possible style. Growing up far from the mountains before moving to Chamonix in the French Alps, it's been a steep learning curve.
Travelling through serious, technical terrain in winter requires you to combine mountaineering and skiing skills in equal measure, whether traversing a range or seeking out the most outrageous lines of descent. It places huge demands on your clothing system as front point sprints up major faces are followed by freezing summits and descents with little margin for error. Our ski mountaineering clothing combines into a flexible system that excels through every part of the day.
Leaving the lifts behind opens up a different world in the winter months. Steady climbs on zig zag skinning tracks lead to isolated cols and summits followed by stunning descents through remote bowls. When conditions are good it’s suddenly possible to travel long distances with relative ease, whether out for a day tour or on a multi-day hut trip. This is the clothing you’ll need to stay comfortable through fast changing temperatures on sun soaked ascents and shady powder fields far from the road.
