Cables Break. Are You Prepared?
Cables, heel lifters, and throws are likely to break. And since you're skis don't tend to break in your car or home, they're probably going to break while you're skiing. Be prepared, especially if you're going in the backcountry, and throw a backcountry kit in your pack, just in case. You'll be kicking yourself when ill fortune befalls you, or wiping your brow with relief depending on whether you buy the repair kit. Make the right choice, for yourself, and all your buddies who'll have to wait on your ass hiking out.
