My Skiing

I spend most of my ski days in the Wasatch backcountry. I love all types of skiing, from lapping powder to technical chuting. I ski solo a lot of the time and probably should get more partners. Look me up if you're interested.

My Gear

I'm fortunate enough to have several setups and access to even more.
I've been using the Ski Trab Magico with Gara Titan Release bindings a ton. Often with Sportiva Syborg or Fischer Travers Carbon boots. I also ski a lot on the Movement Response-X 177 w/ Kreuzspitze SCTT bindings. Really loved the Hagan Y-Flows but those are now my favorite rock skis.

Good news is we're blessed with many more options as compared to the TLT5 & 6 days.

Hi frede, we have verified our specs. They are shorter.
Hi Matt, we generally recommend this one for racing only. It's not the most confidence-inspiring heel piece for ski mountaineering.



Trip Reports

Grrr Couloir

Managed to catch the Grrr with some fresh snow on a beautiful day. Amazing! This was just as our snowpack was starting to heal after a long, unstable early season. Clouds came and went but it was glorious, especially after waiting for so long to ski anything steep this season.

Mt Superior - South Face

I typically ski the south face a handful of times per season. This photo is from the 2019/20 season, just after an epic avalanche cycle. In fact, the road below superior was closed on this day and we skinned up the middle of the road back to the car. There was a backcountry closure in t...
