This pack is perfect for days that you feel like riding everywhere. When headed to the resort for the day I rock the Camelbak Gambler to satisfy any backcountry urges I might have, while still being comfortable on a chairlift.

For the low profile design there is no board holder on this pack so that might limit your backcountry distance. Also, The Gambler has a precise design for your shovel and probe. It takes a second to pack tight so your gear does fly out when cruising but it is also easy to get to for quick access.
