  1. Hi

    Pretty new to backcountry skiing and finally broke down and bought a setup. But I still need to buy skins. I bought BD aspect skis and was wonder best brand and bang for your buck. I also see them pop up from time to time used. Is it worth it or just buy new?

    Any info is welcome

    Thanks


  2. So. Im rigging a safety system for my brother to be protected while climbing up into his tree stand. He's scared of heights. I'm using webbing for the top anchor wrapped around a branch or the tree. With a locker going into a figure eight on a bite. Then I was going to connect the other end of the rope to the bottom of the tree. He would use a tibloc or Prusik to make his way up. Two questions: Is this the easiest way to do this? I'm also wondering if you can dye a rope a more camo color? I have some pmi 8mm cord but it has neon yellow in it.

    Thanks for any advice.
