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 Thom, as compared to the Hoji Pro, Dynafit brought the toe height down a notch and also made it a bit narrower in the forefoot. The instep was opened somewhat as well.
Hi Aci, lengthwise it will be fine! To weigh other factors, visit our online boot fitter.
Hi Eric! We were able to ski the new Backlands and I also found that review strange. The new version skis closer to a tongueless Backland than a tongued Backland since, hey, they removed the tongue. I'll be generous and say it's half-way between, making it a nice boot for those who prefer simplicity versus the removable tongue system. Same story with TLT6 as those were comparable boots. The listed 98mm last is off, felt wider and more voluminous than an F1, though there may be tweaks for production.
Hi Karl, I concur with Eric, I have a hard time describing the functional difference after skiing the new version. They are as good as ever!
