Re: How far can you travel, cross country, on ungroomed terrain, in one day?

Please excuse my perhaps obnoxiously opinionated response! :D :ugeek: :oops: I am assuming that there is no steep terrain on this trek? In particular- there is little to no true downhill skiing? I would be looking strongly at a more cambered XC ski with a kicker skin. I don't see how you can get en...

Re: How far can you travel, cross country, on ungroomed terrain, in one day?

If you are carrying all your gear I am assuming you will be winter camping? You want to know how much we travel in a single day, but there are so many factors do consider that our numbers will be of little relevance to you and your trip. If you actually want to figure out how long your trek will ta...

Re: How far can you travel, cross country, on ungroomed terrain, in one day?

60 miles in that terrain....let's see. factoring in vodka breaks, smoke breaks, and an occasional actual rest, i figure around 4 days in perfect conditions. more like 5 since i don't like to actually work when i tour. i think some people could probably do it in 2-3 days with no gear and not a lot o...

How far can you travel, cross country, on ungroomed terrain, in one day?

Been day dreaming, or shall we call it fantasizing, about a tour through the high Rocky Mountain desert region this winter... say 60 miles. The terrain is undulating with nothing gaining more than 15' at a time...a total elevation gain of 1000' over that 60 miles. The route would be on an old dirt r...

Re: Built-in gaitors in ski pants. Do they work?

For most skiing you will never miss them but I have used them when I needed to ventilate. I could roll up the outer pant above my boot and the gaiter had ventilating mesh that let heat out and kept snow from getting in. I'd leave it like that for the up and down and never had a strap under my boot ...

Re: Built-in gaitors in ski pants. Do they work?

Ok, I think I understand now... maybe. If the gaitor is attached to the boot, when your foot sinks in the snow, that part of the pant is not pushed up by the snow which would otherwise let snow inside the boot. If it isn't attached, the gaitor would make little difference. Sound about right? If so, ...

Re: Built-in gaitors in ski pants. Do they work?

Thanks, Looseheel. Good idea about leaving enough material to reattach if wanted. Lilcliffy - Thanks. I understand that they are supposed to help but in looking at them, I don't see how they would actually work. Both the gaitor and bottom of the pant are to be worn on the outside of the boot, correc...

Built-in gaitors in ski pants. Do they work?

I have a pair of Patagonia Mixed Guide's pants with built-in gaitors. I have yet to wear these pants. I look at the gaitors, wondering if they are effective enough to justify their extra weight. I'd like to cut them out... but not if they actually work. They don't fit snugly around my boots. Not eve...
