Sure you can strap on snowshoes or ride an awkward splitboard, but these are yet to match the feel and ride of traditional boards. Meet MTNApproach, a system that alleviates this headache, it consists of two foldable skis that easily stow in a specifically designed pack. The skis feature a unique binding designed to fit snowboard boots, and feature permanently affixed climbing skins and cross country-inspired bindings, efficiently reducing fatigue whilst cross-country touring.
