      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!

Karhu Meta skis

Recommended Posts

Anyone used these for backcountry/approach type stuff? They're stubby 120cm skis that are fairly wide. Do they downhill at all, or suck in general? Reviews on the web are sparse, and I've never seen anyone use them out climbing. But, if they trek better than snowshoes and allow you to ski moderate downhills, they might be better than snowshoes w/o the weight of backcountry skis and boots. Any info on how they perform would be great. Thanks.

CPSC Says Snowshoe Bindings Recalled To Prevent Injury


WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--A Vermont company is voluntarily recalling about 420

snowshoe bindings, a safety regulator said Wednesday.

Trak Inc., which does business as Karhu Inc. of Burlington, is recalling the

bindings, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

"Screws and other hardware used to keep the bindings intact are too short,

causing the binding to separate from the shoe," the CPSC said. "This poses a

fall hazard to consumers."

CPSC and Trak Inc. are not aware of any injuries involving these bindings.

"This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury," the

agency said.

The recall involves bindings sold on the "Karhu Meta Sweeper" and "Karhu

Morph Sweeper" snowshoes.

A variety of retailers sold the snowshoes nationwide during November for

about $250.
