Grew up getting drug along on family XC trips through the Cascades, as soon as I could walk I was on XC skis. Family enjoys the outdoors - fortunately for me, but slowly trekking through the forest wasn’t my cup of tea as a kid (gear and lift tickets for a family of seven was too much). On family vacations I’ve climbed Mt. Rainier twice, hiked around it (100 miles), gone XC skiing snowshoeing more than I can remember and numerous other adventures such as a weeklong family bike trip along the Oregon Coast and a month long trip through the Grand Canyon. Three years ago I got my first chance to do downhill. I found my sisters old skis, old REI rentals, the people who rented them skied them to a pulp, then she did, and now I do. I’m attending college near Grand Targhee & too poor for a lift ticket so I’ve started to love the backcountry. I would really appreciate some gear and a machine to get me up the hill. The Obsethed skis are perfect for what I do and skiing with and getting tips from someone like Seth would be a legit experience.
Thanks, Joe Temus
