Do they work?

My new and improved dream is to ski/hike from Penacook NH to the top of the Mt Kearsarge in central NH. Primarily following snowmobile trails.

I have, in the past, skied on my nnn-bc setp quite a bit in the area but as i become more risk averse I see my self walking up, and more likely, down the steeper and icier sections. So I think I want a set-up that will let me scoot thru the flatter sections and and bare boot or snowshoe the rest.

I have tricky feet so hiking in the nnn-bc sole is right out. The Alpina Alaska 75 has got my attention but the duckbill seems problematic for the uphills.

What say the masses?

Thanks

They do work... They are fun, but quite heavy... I would never use them for touring or downhill, but for "walking" or roaming around your backyard, they can be fun... 8-)

Id look at a At Setup with telemark tech system. And then follow Anrothar's lead

You can find outdated At boots that are ideal for this cheap.
Boots are easy to walk in especially when cut down.
