      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!

Steep & Cheap: Atomic MX:7 Telemark Ski $43.75!!!!

Recommended Posts

No. You need a bill, which your mountaineering boots do not have. Instead, buy a pair of AT bindings like the 500s or 505s that will take a mountaineering boot. Keep in mind, if skiing with mountaineering boots, it ain't easy and with no cuff support, you won't be ripping up the steep n' deep. I'd recommend getting a pair of AT bindings and Boots and climbing in your AT boots. My climbing partner summitted Denali in AT boots and you can climb anything around here with AT boots as long as you do not need to French technique anything. You can also climb ice in AT boots as well.

yeah.. but are these skis any good? I've heard mixed reviews. $60 aint much, but its $60 wasted if the skis suck.

decent enough for beginners. They're good light skis, great for the tour. However, if yer the agrresive type and in the crud and the steeps, you'll need somethin a little fatter. Im buyin these for a friend thats brand new to tele, so should work well for her, and hell, if they dont, i bet i could turn around and sell'em on ebay for a profit!
