Ditch the resort.
Instead of waiting in crowded lift lines filled with gapers when there's fresh powder to shred, load up the Dakine Women's Heli Pro DLX Backpack and earn your turns in the backcountry. It's equipped with plenty of specialized pockets and straps to hold your gear, and it has a contoured harness designed specifically to fit a lady's frame so you can carry your gear comfortably.
The main compartment has a shovel blade sleeve and room for your probe, and loops on the exterior hold your shovel handle so your rescue tools are always easy to access. An insulated hydration pocket keeps your water from freezing, and a fleece-lined goggle pocket protects spare lenses from getting scratched. If you feel like bootpacking, you have the option of vertical or horizontal snowboard carry straps, and retractable cables hold your skis if you're on two planks. A quick-draw ice axe sleeve allows quick access to your axe if you find yourself in a hairy situation, and an integrated rescue whistle on the sternum strap can help you if you really find yourself in a pinch.
