Getting into the steep and deep is no mean feat unless you've got the 'right' kit to keep you alive in the tundra of the Alaskan ranges. You've not only got to ensure you've got all the right gear, but that you keep the weight down as much as possible as well.

Luckily in this episode, the Tailgate Alaska crew show you the best thing to pack before you head into the wilderness. A highly calorific and universally loved substance, that the more you drink the better you'll feel.
