    Yeah, I was ogling it last spring and it looked super choice to me. Spent the night right by the base of it before doing Hope. With the right conditions, that's my kind of approach. Nice one.

    Does anybody want this gear? Love these skis, I would still ski this setup but I wore the boots to clear some snow last time it snowed in town. They feel tight and I don't want to wear them again....
