If you have any joint injuries that need a little attention and support to get you through your active life then the Zamst line of products is worth taking a look at. I was not sure what to expect from the Zamst ZK-7 Knee Brace and the The Zamst ZW-7 Back Brace but I was pleased with the amount of support that they provided while backcountry skiing as well as skiing laps at the resort. I have been wearing the Zamst ZW-7 Back Brace over my base layer for the past two months while skiing and it has made a world of difference. My lower back muscles are not as fatigued after a hard day out with plenty of vertical gain under my skis.
Our goal in creating Back Country Skiing Canada and the guidebook is to celebrate the mountain lifestyle we have chosen and to share our backcountry skiing knowledge amongst ourselves and with folks from away. As Back Country Skiing Canada and the knowledge base grows with more contributions on the Forums, we hope to build the backcountry skiing community, encourage safe travel through the mountains, promote a healthy appreciation for Mother Nature, and crank up the fun factor.
