  1. Smartwool?

    Bridgedale socks are the best socks to buy. They dry fast and feel great on the feet, also they do not fall apart after a moderate trip. The model that is similar to the Mountaineering is the Summit................

  5. Naxo A.T. Bindings

    I've skied two hard days on the Pure at a lift area and found them to half a good boot to binding to ski feel. I do agree that the Pure wouldn't be the best for day in day out hammering. But an excellent choice for lightweight ski mountaineering and comfortable pivot point for touring. I definatly find the Dyanfit system has the best boot to binding interface. The freerides are bomber, but heavy and the fact that when you flex the ski past a point the heel lock down releases. As I have found all of the bindings have pros and cons, you just need to decide what works for you.
  6. Naxo A.T. Bindings

    We were at Red Mtn a couple weeks ago and the conditions were not the best. New snow a few days prior then it warmed up and then it froze again. Conditions were basically funky. The Naxo broke just below the toe piece, were it connects to the main binding. The whole toe piece started with a small crack then it completly fell off after we tried to see if we could secure it better. The other binding had a small crack forming also. My friend had to walk all the way down the mtn. Sucks to be him. Also I would be worried because the part the binding screws go through to mount to the ski are plastic, another possible week point. THe Naxo is also a tank, look at the new Silvretta Pure, 1200g and has a great pivot point. The pivot point is 30mm back from the toe where the Naxo is about 50mm forward of the toe.
  7. Naxo A.T. Bindings

    I have used them a couple of times. The second time the toe piece broke off completly. We had to jerry rig the boot to the binding with some bailing wire and p-cord. I'm not a big fan, too heavy and it doesn't tour all that well. Look at the new Silvretta Pure, light (1200g) and tours great.

  13. access questions

    Tod, I don't think I ever showed you any of my Alaska photos. You would get a kick out of the ski tracks left on the top of the Rooster Comb. Paul and a couple of pilots had, at the time, a little game of putting the most interesting ski tracks on peaks in the range. We did a touch and go on the top of the Rooster Comb. A very eye opening experience when you here the stall warning going off touching the top of the peak and then gliding off the north side. Fun Fun.............
  14. access questions

    $450 american (not a cheap flight) Time in air was about 1hr 30min.
  15. access questions

    The company that flies to Waddington is Glacier Air out of Squamish. There is an airstrip about a mile north of town. I used them about 7 years ago. The cost per person was roughly $450. There were three of us that flew into the Tiedaman Glacier in April to climb The Wadd, Combatant, Tiedeman, and do a ton of skiing. The pilot flew a Cessna 210, if my memory serves me right. It took one trip in and two trips out because the glacier was a bit sloppy. On the way out we had a very interesting flight as the engine sputtered because we were running on empty. The pilot didn't take in account that he would have to fly half of the gear and group down to a hard runway at Scar Creek and go back for the other person and gear. Other than that we had a great climbing trip. We climb everything we intended on to during the trip, weather was great.

  18. Wanted: Hobie Cat

    I sail out of Shilshole in Seattle and have noticed many Hobie 18 and 21 sitting on the dingy dock, located at the north end of the marina. The registration stickes are dated 2000. There is a nice 21 that the rudders have not been pulled out of the water for at least 2 years, a bit green. You might want to contact the harbor office at Shilshole and see if you can get any info regarding the owners. If you live in the area I have a key to get on the dock. Good Luck.
