My Skiing

Proud member of the Skimo Co staff for 2019-2020!!
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 25+ years, Utahn-come-lately. Frequent user/abuser of 65-90mm skis, race skins, long poles, 1kg boots, small-volume packs, and copious skin wax.

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.

Hey Alex, thanks for the awesome review! If you ever do want to get that tip notch added, we offer notching as an aftermarket service, and you can ship your skis to us to have it done!
Hey Nevada, thanks for reaching out (from our neighboring state?)! The Xenic would be perfectly compatible with your Cochises (it's a full "pin-tech" binding that pairs with the front and rear tech fittings on your boots), but as you mention the high riser on the Xenic might not give you quite enough lift for steeper skintracks and a less-flexible boot. I would advocate either upgrading to a boot with better ankle articulation -- like the Tecnica Zero G you mention, or better yet a two-buckle touring boot -...
Hey Brian, the Zenoxide is no longer, alas! For a similarly girthy, yet energetic ski, you might want to check out theBlizzard Zero G 105 or the Movement Alp Tracks 106.
Hey Tony, thanks for reaching out and glad to hear you will be finding freeheel bliss with the Kreuzspitze kit! While the Kreuzspitze toes are pretty much the best thing going if you like a simple, trouble-free race-style toe piece, you are putting some different forces on the binding with telemark turns and may want a binding toe with particularly strong retention for that reason. I would take a look at either the Plum Guide toe piece or the Ski Trab Gara Titan toe piece, both of which would fit the pre-dr...
Hey Dana, sorry to hear that! Shoot us an email at help@skimo.co and we'll see what we can dig up for ya!
