Type II - Moderate
100+ days / year
Fan of all things light, tight, race-y, and Italian. I love skimo racing, climbing and descending glaciated peaks, long ski-traverse slogs and linkups, consolidated snow, and bushwhacking. East Coaster for life, yearly/spring-ly Rockies/PNW visitor. Frequent user/abuser of 65-90mm skis, race skins, long poles, 1kg boots, small-volume packs, and copious skin wax.
Constantly tinkering with setups and options! Here are a few favorites...
For racing, traversing, and speed missions: Ski Trab Gara Aero or Movement Race Pro 71, Plum Race 120, and Scarpa Alien 1.1 boots.
For going up and down peaks: Ski Trab Maestro and/or Maestro.2 with Kreuzspitze SCTT bindings, Scarpa Alien RS boots. Ski Trab Mohair or Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide skins.
For putting down wiggles in the powder: Movement Alp Tracks 89, Dynafit TLT7, Plum Race 150, Pomoca Free Pro 2.0 skins.
For breaking trail in the Wasatch in January: Voile Hyper V8, Plum Race 170 with high riser option, Scarpa F1 boots, Pomoca Climb Pro Mohair skins.
