My Skiing

I live in a backcountry cabin and ski tour every day. Typically I ski low to moderate angle powder BTL, but in spring my skiing gets spicer. Either way I like lots of vert and distance. I race as well, but find the most enjoyment in tiring myself out by lapping powder, exploring, and seeing nobody's tracks but my own.

Just a follow up--it looks like the matching adjustment plates are no longer available?

I'm just wondering about the potential of pulling the binding out from a wide(r) plank. For reference, I'm 5'11" and 150lb. Thanks! Peter
After one season of daily use and abuse, the wind mitten on both gloves was completely shredded and useless. The problem mostly came from making transitions and flipping my Aliens from ski to walk mode while I had the wind-shell deployed. The lever would tear right trough the fabric if I was pulling hard and not careful. Maybe with a different boot/different mechanism this would be no problem at all. Clearly I should have read Ryan M's advice below. BUT, I mean, who can be bothered to stuff the shell back i...
