My Skiing

I'm from the midwest, so my skiing isn't pretty but I sure do love to do it as much as possible! I'm an employee at Skimo Co and I also work as a ski guide for backcountry skiing and avalanche education.

My Gear

I'm currently skiing a light prototype ski from K2. On the feet, I'm in the Atomic Backland Carbon and clicked into the discontinued Black Diamond Helio 180.

Chris, Sorry to hear you're having compatibility issues with your crampons! If you're looking for something that'll fit extremely well and instill some confidence, then check out  The CAMP Skimo Tour Crampon.
Hey Nels, Thanks for reaching out! A good way to learn crevasse rescue is to hire a certified guide. They'll be able to do a deep dive into what is the industry standard for crevasse rescue.
Hey Olesya, Thanks for the question! Sadly the 105mm crampon will not work with a 110mm ski. We've found that the best fitting crampon will be one that is the same width or better yet, 1-2mm wider. You can check out our Ski Crampon Compatibility article to see what other crampons might work well with your binding & ski!

Hey Dug, Thanks for the question! I would go for the 110mm version. The waist of the Movement Alp Tracks 100 is indeed 100 but where the toe is mounted will actually be a bit wider since it's further up the ski.
Hey Ivan, Great question! I think both the 88 & 95 would work well for you. If you're looking to fill the ski mountaineering quiver slot, then I'd lean more towards the 88. As for length, you'd be able to get away with either the 177cm or 184cm. However, the 177cm will be a bit more appropriate given that it'll weigh less and perform a bit better in tight turning areas.
