Backcountry skiing is a democratic sport, right?

Well, the best way to find out is judging people's reactions. What happens with three seasoned backcountry tourers dress up as inexperienced skiers and head out onto the Wapta Icefield with gear purchased at Canadian Tire?

Our vote for best scene: "You put these on your skis so you can walk uphill."
