You have to move fast if you're going to make it to the alpine and back in a day. It helps if your skimo and climbing setups are light and packed in Lowe's Alpine Ascent 40:50 Backpack. With a straightforward, simple, versatile, and lightweight design, the Alpine Ascent is more than suitable to assist you whether you're ski mountaineering in winter or alpine climbing in summer. It boasts carry systems for climbing ropes, crampons, hydration reservoirs, and more, including Lowe's Head Locker ice axe carry system for extra security when you're carrying sharp tools. The back panel sheds snow when you're skiing pow, and it's removable for accommodating harnesses on rock climbs.
