    Agreed. There's no real evidence they aren't durable inbounds.

    Sluff was moving up high at bridger this morning. Can still feel the crust underneath in many spots, but the skiing is really good

    Did you know that when those Volkl Karmas were made in 2004 that Friends was still on air? And that it was Dubya’s FIRST term? And that Lance Armstrong had only won his 5th Tour? Pretty crazy how...

    It does make you say WTF? to see someone who clearly loves to ski post about snowshoeing and photos of pool chairs. I mean it’s almost entirely green light conditions + a lot of elevations and...

    Nice!

    Had to delete my previous post because of a photo issue. But yesterday I skied Blackmore around 3:00. E/NE/N faces still have cold snow up high. S faces are cooked, but probably fun when it...

    The people who should worry about skiing the Shift are the (few) people who ski harder than Cody Townsend. Not the people who have skied 1,000 days on the Freeride w/out issues. You'll be fine on the...

    I've got the FR14 on the Head Kore 117, but I could totally see putting them on a Vwerks next. Seems like the perfect all around travel setup.

    Get the Shift. 90-95% of the negative stuff you read about that binding is from user error.

    I’d love to own a the Katana, but like OP the price is tough to justify. Although I was looking up the weight and did find a pair for $537 from snow country.eu if anyone wants some “cheap” 191’s...

    The 95 is a ski that comes with the sacrifices of being 1500g and pretty cheap. The Katana is fatter, 400g heavier, and $400 more expensive. Why would anyone be surprised the katana is more stable at...

    I don't think they're the same. Tour wrap has a strap. FT liner doesn't. Intuition liners usually have a different material on the inside that's less "plush" than the FT liners.

    I don't think Andorra would work as a venue if people just skied fast down the fall line.

    100% agree that the Chamonix venue is incredible.

    On the FR14? It's easy. I skin in very thin nordic gloves or leather Kinco's if it's cold. Kinco's make it a bit harder to push the lever, but not a big deal. Also I've maybe done 50 or more...
