    My question for him would be why not unstrap your foot from the "Aircraft grade Aluminum!" frame like you would getting out of a snowboard, leaving the frame in the ski binding. Then you would only have 2 things to carry back to the jeep instead of 4.

    Edit to add...
    We may need to have a ski off with someone sporting these things. It is the only way to be sure!
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just .... snowboard?

    Did anyone go? Would like to see the numbers on that one. Did anyone actually make money or at least break even?

    If your back foot isn't strapped in during the lesson, most definitely otherwise,

    what about those 'rowing machine' bindings? or just rear entry boots?

    those would be better if they were made of spacecraft aluminum. or boeing 737 max aluminium

    Crab Chowder was good at the highest restaurant in North America. Only $17.50 with the bock.
