I'm interested in this unique foldable touring rig, but need something a bit longer than 163's. Will SkiMo be stocked with more size options in the future?
I've been enjoying the Hoji Pro Tour boots for most of the 2020-2021 season. This is a touring boot that is tough enough to aggressively ski the resorts! Single-control for walk mode is very nice (just flip lever, no need to mess with buckles). Indeed, this boot is what I've been skiing the resorts with this year, including some big lines at Snowbird. (Even my resort skis have touring bindings, in case I hit the sidecountry) Amazing how stiff and supportive it is, for its light weight. I have not skin...
I'm impressed with this ski - the scales work well on the up, and it turns well on the down, even carves. Ski likes late-season hardpack. Definitely improved since the old "baby blue" version - a bit softer, with longer tails. I was actually able to climb all the way to top of Alta's Supreme lift, without using skins even once!
Wow! What a great binding! Expensive, but worth it. Just got these mounted on a new pair of Voile Vector BC's. Skinned up Alta, took Challenger down in variable spring snow. Very sold feel, even on frozen crud. The toe springs are somehow enclosed, so they can't ice up. Also, the easiest to step toe into of any I've tried.
Nels, you are right, 6mm is on the light side, diameter-wise, yet still strong enough with the Dyneema core. I suggest 4 mm polyester cord for using prussiks on the 6mm rope - available from Sterling and other brands. Para cord is not to be trusted with your body weight!
