My Skiing

In the winter a fair bit of racing, and below treeline, safe BC skiing. Also some multiday touring and staying in miners cabins/huts.

By the time April comes around I have half my ski days for the season. The rest come after. Interesting, steep, technical lines are the name of the game in the spring. If it involves ice or rock climbing all the better.

The heels are great, but if using without the brakes you need an extra piece(spacer) so the adjustment track operates correctly. I love the brakes and how I can still do a one motion transition with them, unli...

What else to say other than phenomenal! They keep all the stability and confidence of the first version. Incredibly light and versatile. If I had to have one ski only this would be it, however it should also be noted that it doesn't just do all things well, it excels at steep and technical mountaineering and long distance tours where ski ability is required. For anything touring I do where it is more than 2 hours and has real skiing these are my skis. For tours less than 2 hours where going fast doesn't m...

How does the zebra light work for bright sun on snow conditions? Does it get dark enough?
