Ok, this isnt the "conventional" piece of kit that you would take out on the slopes however it is highly recommended! Just back from a trip to Chamonix where i got the last ski lift of the day before the slopes were shut. So how managed to get lost through a mix of thinking i was better than i was and dodgy conditions. I had downloaded a Iphone app before i went as it has a feature where you can track where your mates are so after a bit of a "im not going to admit defeat and use technology" moment i pulled out the phone and used the 3d map function to get me out of the sticky situation! Needless to say, returned to the bottom of the slope in no time but just thought i'd share this item with you as without it, i think id still be wondering around on the top of a peak! You never know when you might need it!
