Re: Scarpa T2 Boots on G3 Targa binding

Great video? Thank you MSU. Pretty sure I skied one of those chutes where the skier drops sharply off the cornice. I only get out there once a year or so to visit family, but that's a great heads up for the OP on the canyons. Yeah, I was wondering where that was shot....I'm guessing lower down in B...

Rocker launch....there's a term I haven't heard in a while! But it's true. Freeheellife = great place, great people. Very knowledgeable staff on the entire range of telemark gear. Owned by Josh Madsen, who has been an effective advocate for telemark out west for quite a while, ran "tele-tribe" to ge...

Re: ski leashes?

Leashes have gotten kind of pricey. Some ski brakes are as low as $40 while some ski leashes are as high as $50. I'd just get something fairly cheap like these: https://www.backcountry.com/22-designs-axl-vice-leashes?CMP_SKU=TTD0034&MER=0406&skid=TTD0034-ONECOL-COILEA&mr:trackingCode=7FBED0D8-75ED-E...

Re: Good so far!

Yeah, seems to me a few years ago we were in a drought and the East was getting pounded!
I WAS up to my armpits today, but that was after my fall.

Re: Good so far!

I live here (Park City actually, where we have half as much - 10 feet - as Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons). Snowpack is a big deal here because it's basically a desert in the summer. We're well above normal so far, but the avalanche danger in the BC is pretty high.

Good so far!

As of today, Snowbird, with over 20 FEET (246") of snow so far this season is #1 in North America.

My legs are tired.

Two more storms lined up in the next week. Keep 'em commin'!
#2 is Revelstoke at 244".

Backcountry has them, and you can usually talk them into a small discount (15% off for first order). https://www.backcountry.com/rossignol-experience-84ai-ski?CMP_SKU=ROS00E9&MER=0406&skid=ROS00E9-ONECOL-S176CM&mr:trackingCode=D95BFFE7-DC9C-E811-8105-005056944E17&mr:referralID=NA&mr:device=c&mr:adTy...

Re: Neutral vs. Active Bindings

You could make the case that there's no such thing as a completely neutral binding unless you're in tour mode and no pressure is felt....just degrees of activity. Any binding is going to pressure the tip as you drop a knee. I had tried a 3 pin with very soft boots in 1970 and those were certainly on...

Re: Rossignol Experience 84 AI initial impressions

Right now my impression is that they flex in a very similar fashion to my Vantage 85 CTI's. Edit: Actually, they have a similar even flex pattern but slightly stiffer overall. I think the CTI's are a little stiffer than the Vantage 85 but really mostly torsionally. I hit some baby bumps yesterday on...
