Kevin_Runolfson Posted September 28, 2018 Share Posted September 28, 2018 Hey all, I am planning to climb Denali next year and use skis to either 11k or 14k camp. My AT setup is pretty darn old. I am pretty sure I bought them around 2005. Scarpa Matrix 3-buckle boots (old yellow model) 180cm Volke Mountain Skis https://www.freeheellife.com/170cm-Volkl-Mountain-Unmounted-Skis-Brand-New-p/1011.htm Dimensions are 104/70/92 Dynafit TLT Vertical bindings. No brakes and the old-style leash. What I like about this set-up is that it is super light. However, it is now about 13 years old, the bindings are loosing their spring and hard to get into, and the skis are very skinny and punch through crust easily, leaving me unable to turn. I mainly use my AT skis to skin up peaks and get down. I don't do a lot of back-country touring. They are mainly to make a 4 hour boot descent into a 30 minute descent. Any advice for a new setup? There are so many different boots/skis/bindings out there that I figure I would ask around for opinions first. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
