My Skiing

Almost entirely a backcountry skier, I like going far and racking up big days. I've skied several years in the Utah backcountry, around Colorado, and in the Pacific Northwest. I'm an ex-ski bum at Snowbird and an ex-professional ski patroller at Park City. I also race and love doing it.

My Gear

TLT 5 Performance boots
Dynafit PDG 160 cm with TLT speed superlight bindings.
Black Diamond Stigma 170 cm with TLT Speed bindings.
Black Diamond Revert 180 cm with TLT speed bindings.

It's impossible to get the cord adequately tight when adjusting by hand, so they need to be adjusted, put on the boot, and retightened af...

Are the older crampon mounts removable once installed? ie. can you unscrew and remove then reinstall as needed?
