Snowy Colorado

Post by blogger | October 29, 2009      

Warren Miller said something like “every minute of every day, somewhere in the world it’s snowing.” Sounds like those snowy minutes are hitting a lot of you guys out there. Yesterday, we got our share here. Looking like a good start to a fine backcountry skiing season!

    Hello! I have acquired a fixation(fixing) tlt vertical st with brakes.
    It is possible to use fixation(fixing) is without brakes?
    I say it, because in the heel the boot rests in a projection. Rompera this projection of the heel, on having unloaded the weight?

    On having bought the fixation(fixing) with included brakes, to remove them I have to change wharves. Is it(he) true?

    Thank you very much.
