Welcome to the forum Lars, and thanks for such a good TR. What skis and boots did you use and how much did your gear weigh?

I used Snowscape 9 skis, which are a thin, light, short ski. My boots were breathable Comfort Pros from Fischer. My backpack with food, gear, and equipment weighted about 35lbs. The picture show's warrior carbon poles, but I wound up using some adjustable backcountry poles by Fischer that have a max lenght of about 165cm.
