    Gday, I am a boarder but posting for a mate. He is a skier and wants to have a crack at some BC. Can anybody give some advice on what sort of setup he might need for, say, a short trip from dead horse gap carpark to south rams head/ leather barrell creek, and a longer trip from guthega to wilson's crags? is he able to use his downhill boots and skis? any help much appreciated.
