WATCH: The FIFTY - Gear Talk

In this episode of THE FIFTY, Cody dives into his main quiver of skis, boots, bindings, and poles, while also digging into the reason behind these gear decisions and what kind of line dictates what kind of gear to choose for the day.


'The FIFTY' is a project to climb and ski all 50 lines chronicled in the book, "The Fifty Classic Descents of North America". Over the next three years, Cody Townsend will be chronicling the adventures, challenges, and travels as he takes on a collection of the most aesthetic, spectacular, and hardest lines in North America.
