What else does one need for Easter?
Yeah well, if you were not there, you should have been! Maybe next year?

You don't want to ski that with leathers??? To me that has leather written all over it!

I only do that when on multi-day expeditions. Otherwise, I maintain quite a sizeable quiver, like most ski freaks out there.MikeK wrote:Was still under the impression you were trying to do everything with one boot and one ski.

That is what I meant by my previous post, and my wisdom, or lack thereof is always the same. It's going to be some compromise. Only you know what that is, but you seem to be still searching. My suggestion was to perhaps search inside rather than out.
I'm always looking for a nice balance. But perfection does not exist. You are either going to clomp with a stiff boot and wide ski or learn to ski touring gear in more difficult situations. I keep suggesting the latter because you are at heart a XC guy, and I know you can do it
I'm the same, that's why my quiver tends more toward touring gear despite me doing more xcD these days.
