  1. These are awesome boots. I have used them once and will not be skiing anymore. These will hopefully serve you well as you get after it!
  2. Wise volcano climbers and skiers of this website and the PNW: Wondering if anyone can share their wisdom of forecasting good volcano ski conditions (winter/ pre-corn). I pretty much assume anything above treeline is wind blasted, golfball sized rime chunks, boilerplate ice, or sastrugi (usually a combo) during the winter. This sour grapes attitude has left me really surprised when friends report skiing (Mt. Hood in most cases) powder from the summit, or even on the Palmer during the winter (okay, maybe more like March-April, and given that it doesn't seem to happen that often!). I am not really talking about corn cycle, although any wisdom is appreciated. Mostly how to determine whether the skiing will be ice chunder or decent above timberline. It seems that most big storms are windy and rowdy, and just scour anything above timberline, with the exception of localized lee pockets of softer snow. Does it just take less windy storms? Better aspect/terrain choices? It also seems that given a few clear midwinter days, anything sunny gets icy or a nasty sun crust- yet I am surprised by the winter corn harvests I read about from such periods. Obviously my cynical mindset is holding me back from the goods, so can anyone walk me through their conditions forecasting process? Is it a matter of just hoping for the best or are you all semi pro meteorologists? Thanks and happy (ice) skiing! Max
  3. Hey folks! I’m looking for a scaled metal edged backcountry ski! Preferably around 180 in length. Let me know what you got! voile objective? Hyper vector? Madshus annum?
  4. Like new ski touring boots. I bought these 3 weeks ago and I skied in them twice but they are too small for me. They are crazy light and a rad boot for backcountry touring and ski mountaineering. Amazing walk mode and actually really stiff and decent on the decent too. I'll post a picture of the specifications of the boot. here are a few links to the boot - https://www.salomon.com/en-us/shop/product/s-lab-x-alp.html#color=10710https://sawtoothguides.com/2017/11/20/20172018-salomon-x-alp-ski-boot-review/I bought them for $899, so two uses cost me $200 haha but I need to sell them to buy a new pair so hey...The boots are 26.5 touring boots. Phone number is 5six2 three2one 8ninenine8shoot me a text and we can find a time for you to check out the boots. cheers! IMG_2189.heic
  5. wanted to buy Full AT setup x2

    Probably a little late into summer to look for a deal but my wife and I want to start ski touring this winter and we're each looking for a full AT setup. Male: 5'9", size 10.5 boot Female: 5'1", size 6 boot If anyone knows of stores anywhere in the PNW that still has closeouts on old merchandise, used or demos that'd be great too.
  6. I'm on the road and planning so spend late June and most of July in the PNW. I already have plans to ski Rainier with a friend, but besides that I would be down for any skiing or Alpine climbing. I'm available all week and pretty flexible with traveling. I have AIARE 1 and companion rescue. 10+ years experience sports, big wall and Alpine climbing. Have crevasse rescue training as well. I have all my gear including full rock rack with me. Let me know if you are interested.
  7. Alpine Touring Setup -- Asking $350 Skis: Rossignol T4 185cm (122-94-112) -- Some repairs, which you can see, but overall great shape. One crack on the top near the tail of one ski. Highlighted in the photos. Bindings: Fritschi Freerides, XL includes breaks Skins: Black Diamond Climbing Skins
