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.

Hi Pete, yes it's possible! You needed to remount the heel pieces with the brakes underneath, drilling one more hole to secure them. You definitely want the 80mm brakes for a 78.
Hi Mariana, yes they do.
