My Skiing

My wife raced alpine at a very high level and now coaches; she suffers no sissiness from me on or off piste. We live close to the resort, so at least 4-5 days a week we put in fitness laps. I took my first Avy 1 class 15 years ago and enjoy well-planned tours with good communication—chalk it up to a long tenure in the search-and-rescue world. I have strong technical rope skills, so rappels, belayed descents, etc. are always fair game. Pow or die (but, big GS corduroy turns are also pretty rad).

I can attest to the trail-running/hiking and ski-touring performance of these bad boys. They are pretty awesome. I'd been looking at something with like these or the Black Crows Furtis for the big adjustability factor that comes with such a long grip section. After reading Brian H's review (link in the review above this) on his blog, I was really close to ordering these directly from the inventor/manufacturer in Chamonix. I was glad that I held off for a week or so on that decision, because I spotted them d...
Purchased these in 177cm as my first lightweight touring/mountaineering ski to use in the Wasatch back. Coming from a beef setup, these feel soooo light—in a good way. Paired with the Ski Trab Titan Vario Adjustable binding and Arc'teryx Procline Carbon boots. After some resort days, a 8+ hours of fitness laps, and one standard backcountry adventure day, here are my thoughts: Quick & dirty: Stiffer ski that can float and carve without weighing you down on the up. Highly recommend for a one-ski backcountry ...
These suckers are awesome! So awesome that my wife—who knew what she'd be missing—ordered a set the same week (day?) as I did. Mine are mounted to a pair of Dynastar Mythic 97 Pros (driven with Arc'teryx Procline Carbon boot). Hers are mounted to some Movement Alp Tracks LT 84s (driven with Scarpa F1s). After two lift-served days early this season (skiing everything from 8" (20cm) of powder to icy moguls) to test their limits, several days of our regular resort fitness laps, and one solid touring day, I'm r...
