At Eddie Bauer, our guides and athletes know that in order to build gear that will withstand the rigors of the outdoors, you have to get it out into the field and put it to the test. And what better place to test our ski apparel and gear than the ultimate testing ground, Haines, Alaska. There's truly no place like it on the planet for backcountry skiiing and for putting gear to the ultimate test.
Our First Ascent Guides spend their days reaching the tops of mountains, hanging off the sides of rock faces and pushing themselves off of waterfalls. In the course of their adventures, they are also busy working on designing and improving the First Ascent line of outerwear and gear.
