Hey all, I started skiing this winter and wanted to share some pictures of my adventures. The stoke is real, and I’m loving backcountry Nordic skiing, and making attempts at tele turns. I bought a pair of Madshus Eons, 195cm, waxless, and mounted NNNBC AUTO bindings to ski the rolling hills of cherryville/monashees, in BC, Canada. I am 5’10, 170lbs (for anyone who cares) and I LOVE my ski set up. Most of what we are doing are loops on FSRs, and exploring gentle and technical terrain. We have been skiing down cut blocks as we have seen enough snow this year, and had temps reaching -21 Celsius. Starting to move into more moderate terrain.... today we traversed and skied “saddle mountain” in lumby. Technical up hill climbing with fairly committing descents. Starting to get exciting for me. Anyway, hope this brings a smile to someone’s face!

I’d definitely like to start taking better photos, but I’m often too excited to think about it...,

Thanks for posting Jigz. The joy of the tour never gets old. Imagine how much stoke you will have when you are cranking out effortless turns in soft floaty snow. IME the more skill you have the more physical pleasure you will get.

Awesome stuff Jigz-
Please do keep posting and let us know how you make out.
Forgive me if I missed it- what boot are you using with the Eon?
