  1. I don't have a solution but wanted to say that the same thing happened to me.


    I went from never having used the gear before, to skiing about 14 miles in two days. I got the blisters and worse, hurt my achilles badly enough that I had to bow out of a trip to Alaska when I hadn't recovered a month later.


    Maybe easing into using the boots/bindings/skis would help. But I also think the skiing just exacerbates any flaw in the way your boots fit. I'll be reading this thread if anyone has any suggestions.

  2. Thule roof rack with attachments for skis and mountain bike, plus fairing. This is in good shape, hasn't seen a lot of use. It fits a 2002 Subaru Impreza. From looking at Thule's website I believe this will fit any car that does not have rain gutters.


    $225 OBO.

  3. SOLD BD Lightsabre bivy: $50


    BD Winter Bivy: $30. Great shape.




    SOLD Black Diamond Beta Light: $80.


    SOLD Thermarest NeoAir: $40


    Hardman pad: Free with any other purchase.




    Scott Ninja Poles, 48": $10.




    Look Pivot demo bindings (12 DIN): $50. Brakes are kinda skinny, look like they'll clear 80 mm but could be tweaked out easily.



  4. Selling a full randonnee/alpine touring ski setup. Great for ski mountaineering, I climbed Stuart Glacier Couloir and skied the Sherpa Glacier with these.




    181 K2 Shuksan skis

    Dynafit TLT bindings

    Black Diamond climbing skins (purple, no tail clip)

    Garmont Mega-Lite boots size mondo 28 (US size 10)


    If you want me to part it out, make me an offer.

  5. You're worried that skiing is having a negative impact on your hill climbing workouts?? You've got your priorities backwards. Your workouts are to make it easier to go have fun!



    If you are a beginning or not very good skier, yes, I think your quads and other big leg muscles will be getting worn out skiing. This will lessen as your skill improves. Technique makes a huge difference.


    When I want to train for skiing, I do stairs and lunges. This helps with skiing generally, backcountry skiing more so.
