Re: crampon vs skins

Crampons vs skins are not an either/or question. ATers know ski crampons are a thing. While not common to tele', it's no big leap and I can see them on crusty stuff where skins won't work.

Off the Bakerville, Loveland Trail. -The BLT. Fair warning.
Fair warning to who?

Getting there, getting there... Weird technique though, with boots outside the bindings... very, very neutral.

Surely you have some ideas… :D Me? Never. ... Go to (play with temporary holiday theme, hit the "G" in the corner a ...

It needs to be "machine-able" and not rigid, not more than 1/4" thick, of regular envelope dimensions (not square, see USPS), and not contain anything prohibited. For kick wax, you'd...

Oh, ho, ho... NOW you've done it! The only way I see to settle this is in person! With "samples"! And "witnesses" who also ski! And food! And more "samples"!
