My Skiing

Touring and skimo focusing on mileage and vertical, traverses, enchainments, etc. I do enjoy powder laps as well. Goals mostly involve traverses and peak bagging of ranges in SW Montana. I'm single and enjoy long walks on deserted beaches. I like to rock climb, cook, and dance to progressive house music. I skied a big mountain in Alaska once. I vote for public lands.

My Gear

Skis: Ski Trab Magico 171, Volkl Nunataq 179, Movement X-Session 171. Various Frankenbindings. Boots: Scarpa Aliens and Alien RS.

I forgot to say, the lower part of this jacket does feel slightly baggy, but after sticking my skins inside, I'm really glad it's there, otherwise, it would be way too tight. I'll take this to be part of the design. Good design makes for good performance.
I got these with the hopes to make my TLT 6 Performance fit. Although the liners performed willingly, and everything I could have asked them to do, I couldn't make the boots work. I bought these a 25.5 TLT 6, and they fit great, giving me more toe box and more width. I think it's the best replacement liner if you are looking for a simple, lightweight, warm, no-nonsense liner. The only reasons I'm giving 4 stars, is the lack of rear pull loop, and the excessive width around the lower leg. I have skinny legs,...
After about 10 days in the Nitro Jacket, it has become my go-to piece. The breathability combined with perceived durability should make it a regular in my fall-spring wardrobe. I'm 5'10" 135 and decide to go with the medium, since I have rock climber lats. This was a good call. I can still get a heavy fleece on to layer, but it isn't too baggy when I'm just wearing a single layer underneath. For the price, I think it's a great value. The fabric is quiet and supple. I also really like the black center for wa...

I took Trace's encouragement to get these over the Dynafits. They go on surprisingly easily. Ski crampons were a game-changer to me, and the ATKs leave nothing to be desired. Highly recommended! I am using these on Movement X-Session 169 (89 waist) with Dynafit Speed Radical toes. I have the 97mm version. It's a perfect fit.

I have two sets of these. One is mounted on SkiTrab Magicos (with SkiTrab toes), the other on Movement X-Sessions (with Dynafit toes). I'm 5'10", 136. Mostly, I've used them for enduro ski tours. I have pushed them pretty hard on steep descents. Overall, they have worked flawlessly. They are easy to manipulate. It's a simple and lightweight design. I do have a pair of the plastic risers, which I tend to use more on my Movements when I know I'm going to be setting tracks in the deep stuff. Thanks, Skimo guys...
