      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Those REXs are incredibly sexy. Though be careful, once you put Dynafits on them women will swarm you in droves. This may make it hard to go skiing.

I don't know about the Dynafits. I've got brand new Comforts in a box in a corner, but then I have to get new boots. Megarides don't go big enough to accommodate my ankles and calves, so I'd have to go with Laser and mod them extensively like I've done with my Denalis. But that's a PITA, and costs more, too. Maybe I'll just put Freerides on them, keep the Denalis, and deal with the weight. I dearly love those XTs by now.

 

Hey Rudy, I heard that K2 was going to name the Shuksan the "Rudy" because it's short and doesn't ski well, but the PR people stepped in at the last minute. yelrotflmao.gif

Surprisingly few snowboards in the lineup. Just wondering if that's due to lack of participation in the activity or if people don't consider them part of the (special for Kurt) quiver.

 

I vowed that I'd never get on a board, and still self identify as a skier, but after using a snoboard for a 30+ days in a season while nursing torn knee ligaments back to life I became a convert. It's nice to have both options in the (extra special for Kurt) quiver to keep things interesting.

 

If at some point I get really, really, really bored with skiing I might have to take up telemarking, but that day is a long way away....
