Re: Tele bindings on Objectives, consensus?

Yeah, I think they're a great in-bounds ski. I like them better in-bounds than my V6s even though my objectives have a patterned base which is less than ideal for lift service. I find them to be just fine even on hard snow and ice... as long as it's a relatively uniform surface. Bumpy ice and tracke...

Re: Tele bindings on Objectives, consensus?

It’s fine. I have multiple years with voile 3pin on risers on my objective bc, no inserts. I haven’t babied them, but I also generally try to use good style instead of brute force.

Re: Total newb, looking for advice.

You can totally do this all yourself with patience. The only challenge is not drilling through your bases so a press with a stop, a stepped bit, or an adjustable countersink bit (my choice) will work.

Re: Lets talk about your pole..s

Re: The new Rottefella Back Country binding system

Bumping this back up just in case anyone has a lead. I know that "new light pin+NTN boot from Scarpa" did not make an appearance in any manner but hoping maybe something is moving in this area. Either of those two things would keep me from giving up and going AT for alpine ice excursions.

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

Those snow conditions are difficult for anyone on any ski. Breakable crust is maybe only second to iced sun cups for "maybe I'll just not" backcountry conditions. As someone who started coming here because I was on bc nordic skis and I wanted to learn to turn the advice here is all good and correct....
