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.

FYI I have also had this problem three times, twice bent it back and the third time had scarpa replace the hook. I wouldn't worry about it in a race unless there was lots of running. It has always happened when running/fast walking mountaineering
