      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!

touring snowblades......swiss of course

being a 20+ year snowboarder gives me little thought of taking up skiing but these snowblades may convert me to a two plank life style. if you would allow me to be liberal with the term plank in regards to snowblades.

 

may turn out to be a great ice climbing approach tool though.

I'm not sure how these are really an improvement over the Rossignol Free Trek Venture approach skis I bought in the early 2000's. Actually the binding is identical, but the Freetreks were just a normal 99cm fat snowblade with a standard skin with glue. They really work quite well although are difficult to ski in anything but corn with a pack on (with my leather ice boots anyways). I haven't really used them since I made the switch to real skis with dynafits. I'd probably sell em if someone is interested.

I've got a pair of Summit Ski Boards that are mounted with Silvretta Touring bindings. They work pretty well, but nothing is as good as a set of AT skis.......

It's a parody right? The music.. Haha

 

It is a Swiss commercial.

 

Those Swiss with their dry sense of humor.. wonder why such an incredible best of both worlds product didn't previously saturate the market.
