Global Storming – May – Colorado

Post by blogger | May 12, 2011      

In the west Elk mountains today, Tony and Scott said they’d make me break trail if I didn’t immediately publish hero shots upon our return. Yes Virginia, these photos have no intellectually redeeming value whatsoever — they’re just human beings having fun backcountry skiing, and we hope they’re fun to look at.

    Fun morning out there today with you guys. Still amazed at how good it was.

    Anyone know where to find boot center/midsole on some older K2 tele skis (World Pistes, 167cm) with the old binding inserts? (K2 didn’t mark the midsole) I want to mount some Dynafits, and don’t want to use an adapter plate. Anyone done this?

    Trying to find something to ski this weekend in the Alpine where I won’t get all killed up. Any suggestions?

Got something to say? Please do so.
