My Skiing

Light touch, enjoy skinning up and out as much as the skiing down. Kneeologist warned me to knock off high impact activities so my resort skiing will be limited.

My Gear

Elan Ripstick 106, 174, Fritschi Tecton for those rare to be resort days and lift serviced slackcountry.
Fischer TranAlp 88, 177cm, G3 Ion LT, for those days when I am wondering how all these people got on my planet.

The sensation I get when comparing this boot (Carbon Cuff) to my Travers Carbon's (now the backup boot) is, when skiing the Hannibal 96's, the skis feel much wider, float even better and controlling and maintaining speed is a simpler task.

Fischer Travers CC 27.5 Fischer Hannibal 96 176 Body weight 150 lbs Height 5'6" Skier Type II-III I took the boots out for two short tours from Albion lodge up Summer road to the top of the Albion lift. Skiing down was limited to groomers due to a fluid extraction procedure done on my knee four days prior. Comparing these boots to the Travers Carbon (18-19), the CC is much more laterally stiff. Noticeably so both skinning up and skiing down. The stiffer cuff did not inhibit cuff rotation and with the b...
Weight - 150 lbs Skier type - II/III Length - 176cm Boots - Fischer Travers Carbon Compared to the Fischer Hannibal (which was described by Skimo Co as a powder-hunting, ice-carving powerhouse), the Fischer Transalp 90C has a rather nonchalant attitude when in the same conditions. A very fun, easy turning ski.
Teddy, Thanks for recommending the S Glides for the Hannibal's. As stated in the User's Guide the skins came alive after 1,000 meters or so of ascent. Wicked fast.
