My Skiing

100% free heel skiing, both in the resort and backcountry. I use both telemark and alpine turns as I feel is warranted by the conditions. I ski a finesse style. I prefer to let the skis do the work and go along for the ride. As such I generally prefer skis with a shorter turning radius.

I used to ski 90% backcountry, but not anymore now that we have 2 kids. I expect to do more and more backcountry skiing again as the kids get older.

After breaking and replacing a couple of C2 lower shafts, I have started covering the bottom 12" with heat shrink tubing. This seems to be just enough to prevent ski edges from cutting into the carbon fibre. Also it comes in an awesome variety of bright colours.
In the end I acquired a combin reglue kit from my local distributor. It's a 2 part adhesive. The reglue process was similar to regluing with gold label, but without the need to scrape off the old glue. I used a hot putty knife to remove the glue from my erroneous attempt to put gold label over the combin glue which didn't work at all.
So I picked up a pair of these at a local shop to try them out. I was able to make them fit the 240mm boot soles by shimming the boots up with a thin piece of plywood (about 3/16" thick). The added height pulled the wire bales in tighter to the boot.
