Should you find yourself in a patrolled environment or skiing steep slopes and don’t want to risk dropping your skis, a leash will come in handy. The Marker Alpinist Leashes are strong, coiled steel cable that connects to a lightweight wire-gate aluminum carabiner. The ‘biner attaches to a steel loop that should be girth-hitched somewhere on your boot. Clean, light, and a length that may promote ripping skins with skis on. Price is for a pair of leashes.
