Oh man was this fun to watch!
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

Added benefit... it's tactical.

That is fantastic, and it looks like it actually works, too...

Anyone want to try skiing in bowling shoes?

100% epic. I've already thrown away my bindings and bought some. Even works under the ski as a climbing skin. 100% true.
