Backcountry Skiing and Ski Mountaineering in Rocky Mountain National Park
A full color backcountry ski guidebook to Colorado's most popular National Park by AMGA mountain guide Mark Kelly, a long time local and former guide in the park.
STAFF PICK: TUCKER
I'm constantly referring to this book for information, and as a journal to keep track of what I've skied and when. It's so useful to have information about all of the major backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering within Rocky Mountain National Park in one book so clearly organized.

I have been using the MSR Trail Shot for two years now and love it. I use it on long trail runs in RMNP. It is great because it is extremely compact and quick and easy to use. A great answer for bikepacking to spring backcountry ski tours - my go-to water filtration source.
