Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

Cannatonic, as far as I knew Silvretta are not made anymore. I found that places website you mentioned but I'm not seeing Silvretta bindings, are they called something else now? STG, dynafit is just so expensive. bgregoire, I'm wondering if the Fischer bcx 675 would be a decent compromise just for t...

Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

He is much more of a skier than I am, he skied in on AT skis/boots, He said they didn't make the summit from postholeing but I don't think he took snowshoes for the glacier, they got about 200 feet below the summit.

Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

Soft ski boots are not rigid enough for climbing too much flex, etc. Stiff Mountaineering boots with good grip are much better at climbing, I'd prefer Snowshoeing on the glacier and as far up to the ridge that I can.

Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

Cannatonic, It's actually only 20 miles in and 20 miles out so a total of 40 miles. Well crampons, Ice axe, etc are needed as there is a glacier to cross but I'll have climbing gear, ya never know when you might have to do an emergency rappel, etc. I'm planning on doing 10 miles a day , so I don't h...

Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

bgregoire, I wished they just had an all purpose, climbing, skiing, hiking, boot that could just change from one thing to the other + bindings, lol I don't think there is much real downhill skiing involved in that area, as I'm not skiing down the mountain, lol I'd prefer not to drag a sled but we'll...

Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

STG, Yes that is the route that I'm going. To Gannett Peak over bonney pass. And I know someone who just came back from there yesterday and gave me a condition update, though I'm not heading in until around early May, so I'm sure conditions could change. I'll probably ski up to titcomb basin then af...

Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

Bgregoire, ya it's mostly a climbing trip, I figured the skis will probably take a good beating on that trip so why buy some new expensive ones. Actually I've looked at those altaski bindings as well, I was just concerned that maybe a true ski binding and boot might be better, but who knows maybe I ...

Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

I'm not really peakbagging, I'm going in to climb Gannett peak. But yes, I'm using them as approach skis, I see they make those Alpina's in 75mm too, so maybe either NNN-BC or Voile 3 pin either Mountaineer or the 3 pin cable. I'm wondering how these boots would do climbing.

Re: Which bindings and should I even use these skis

I've been following that thread, but I figured I'd ask in reference to the terrain I will be skiing on, MikeK what about bindings like these http://www.icetrek.com/np-bindings.html and just wearing my Mountaineering boots, I know about the Silvrettas but those seem pretty hard to find, It would be n...

Which bindings and should I even use these skis

I bought 2 pair of USGI Asnes Skis 210 cm supposidly the sidecut is 75/65/70, they came in great condition as they were never issued, I'm mostly just wanting them for trekking into the Wyoming back-country as an approach ski into the Wind River Range. Would these skis work with some Voile Hardwires ...
