My Skiing

Roughly 200-250k vert per year touring. Living in VT about half of that comes from early morning skinning for freshly groomed piste and then carving down that. So I like touring skis that lay trenches on trails too.

Lots of skiing VT trees, alpine couloirs in NH, and annual bc ski trips to northeastern Quebec, San Juans, CO, GTNP, and Iceland.

My Gear

This years predominant touring skis will be
178 Kastle MX 98 w/ Dynafit Vertical FT12
189 Sportiva Vapor Float w/ Dynafit Vertical FT12

Boots are a 26.5 TLT6 Performance
