  2. WTB Silvretta Size L

    Bumping this. Confirmed I need a size L binding.
  3. Sold: approach ski setup - $200

    Can't believe I missed this! If Thaddeus backs out I'll take them.
  4. SOLD

    I hate to rain on your deal but they're $39.93 and free shipping (to REI store) and lifetime returns from REI right now.
  5. WTB Silvretta Size L

    Sounds intriguing. Carbon right? What's the waist size of the ski? I'm getting different answers on sizing for these things. Can you somehow determine if it will fit a size 13 spantik with overboots? I can take measurements for you if needed.
  6. WTB Silvretta Size L

    Looks like medium size will work too!
  7. WTB Silvretta Size L

    Anyone neglecting their Silvrettas and interested in sending them to a good, loving, happy home? Bonus points if they come mounted to something I can use to slide down a hill!
  8. Interested in Silvretta's. PM Sent.
  9. best of the eastern sierra?

    April is an awesome time to be in Yosemite Valley. Not too hot, not too many crowds and not too many mosquitoes. Getting from there to the east side, however, is a bit of a chore. If you have a month, though, I would definitely consider spending a week in the Valley. For routes on the east side, depending of course on snow conditions and temps you could try the classics on Temple Crag, Incredible Hulk and several classics in the Whitney cirque. Might still be pretty cold but you might get a good window. Bear creek spire and the rock creek region has great climbing and skiing. I haven't been into Langley but there are supposed to be some great routes in the 10's as well as good skiing...Again, might be a bit cold for a 14'er. For skiing, you have plenty of time to do a trans sierra, sierra high route, evolution loop, palisades loop, sawtooth loop...Probably not all of those but definitely some great options.

    what's wrong with the Cap 4?
  11. I WILL THROW IN MINTY BD MOHAIR SKINS CUT TO SIZE! $300 - 4FRNT EHP 186 from 2007/8. Drilled twice for large dukes at a 330 bsl. Once on the line, once back 4cm. Skied less than ten times but these have seen some action. Three core shots and a little edge/base separation all fixed with epoxy, metal grip and base weld. Bases are currently in good shape. Edges look good. Top sheet has a few scrapes but is in good condition. I'll post pics this evening. Reason for selling: I'm crazy, these are the best planks you can have under your feet. Fun, lively, playful, they give back 110% and will make you a rock star on the mountain. Rock. Star. It's like Eric himself is skiing and you're just telling him where to go. Can your current sticks give you an out of body experience like that?
