My Skiing

More than halfway through The Chuting Gallery. Used to live in Utah but now Boston which has severely curtailed my opportunities. Get to Utah at least once a year plus occasional trips elsewhere. Avoid skiing the East.

My Gear

Have lots, but my frequent skimo setup is Hagan x-ultra, TLT Mountain5, dynafit speed radical.

Had this for years and it's everything as advertised. I'm not sure I've ever brought it into the backcountry but I have to resorts, solely when on different snowboard/splitboard setups. Definitely useful for all the things in a neat little self-contained storage unit. In the backcountry, just use a voile strap. Lighter and more useful :p
Been using multiple versions of the whippet for 15+ years. It's an absolute must-have for Wasatch ski mountaineering. Just this week it got me down a chute in one piece. Use it for climbing on every booter. My biggest worry when first buying was stabbing myself or tearing my outerwear and neither has happened over hundreds of ski days. If you don't have at least one already, not sure what you're doing on this site.

downright abused is an understatement. Been around the world climbing on dirt, rocks, trees, ice, some snow, and everything in between with these guys. They have kept me moving up and always asked for more. Still sticky, still stretchy. They have my favorite tip/tail attachments of any skin I've ever used. glide very nicely and still get me up the steepest wasatch skin tracks. Love them and hope they last another forever.

I've been rocking Dynafit Ultras for a lot of years and trusted them in a million sketchy situations and they have never let me down. Absolutely love them for the skimo days when I'm putting lots of vertical and miles in. Especially love the skin attachment system which goes strong no matter how wet, snowy, hot, whatever your skins get during the day. Absolutely not a powder ski. But who skis powder anyway. I would give ten stars if that was an option.

Everything it says in the description. ultralight, ultrastrong, smooth rope pulldown. Everything I hoped for and no problems so far. They are small, so a thicker rope may not work. 6mm rope pulls silky smooth. My only fear is losing them/dropping them etc. Very small and light.
