  1. Hey man, I am going up baker tommarrow and boarding down. If you wanna come then your welcome. I fly out of seattle at 11:00 Pm on the 18th, so I gotta be back by then. If we could meet in seattle and ride down togethor then I would opt for muir since I have never been there. Let me know soon, I ll pm you my number.

  2. What would "lightweight" be considered when talking about fatter skis? Would something like this Atomic Janac be good? Size 163? They are 99 wide and from the little looking IO have done thats FAATT.


    Btw not saying I would get those, they are definately on the expensive side.

  3. Well, I guess in the book they go short so the ski's are lighter. I am like 5,10 and 135 though, but I guess with a full pack a gear I d be closwer to 160-170. They also reccomend the silveretta 300 bindings in the book, because they are the lightest. Basically I am looking for the lightest combo I can get that will alow me to skin up and ski down using mountaineering boots.

  4. So I am looking for some ski's and know nothing about them. Basically I need some idea's of what to look for. I will be using them for descents and ascents mountaineering. So stuff like coming down baker, glacier peak, silverstar, muir. ext. I would like something as light as possible, that will still work without sinking. In Extreme Alpinism they recomend 130-140 cm skis? Second what bindings? They have to work with a mountaineering boot...does anyone else use a system like this. I mean it seams like it would be easier to just skin up.
