    cool!

    you have to move to the ball of your foot and off your heels.

    lean forward. react. like an animal.

    i hope to live in nz one day, for a bit.

    Are you talking about the guy in picture or the guy with the gopro?

    whoever is skiing on their heels.

    also, don't pick the skis up when skinning, just slide them forward.

    rock on. thanks for the stoke, will do.

    went out to do avy control routes on the south island with about 30-40cm of new snow depending on the wind loading. tomorrow we'll be throwing bombs on my birthday... something i never thought would ever happen.

    At first I thought he was skinning in alpine bindings.

    No Parking, where are you? Canterbury or southern lakes area? Or in between? I'm in Canterbury.
