It's a race to the sunlight.
Waking up before sunrise is difficult enough. Add backcountry touring in freezing temperatures to your pre-dawn schedule, and your sleepy mind can't simply comprehend why you want to put such physical effort when your bed is not only a comfortable alternative, but a completely reasonable one as well. It's around the time you see the sunrise near the summit of a snowy, trackless peak that your psyche to ski wakes you up better than any cup of coffee could. Sure your fingers might be numb during the skintrack, but the Black Diamond Women's First Light Jacket keeps you warm and comfy as you slide your way uphill. Not just warm, the First Light's stretchy, breathable construction also keeps you comfy when you work up a sweat.
