Bad case of GAS!

Somehow ski season fever hit me a couple days ago.  Probably because I just unloaded some old bike stuff and have some cash in my pocket.

Thinking about a pair of these:



Just waiting for $400 more to show up in my bank account... somehow...

Just some 3 pin bindings.  I have a pair of T2s and some leather boots I'll likely use with these.

Thanks man.  The glades where I do laps I don't usually get more than 400' or so per lap and some lines I only do 150' or so, so I don't really need anything too fancy.  In fact, the less time I spend messing with bindings and putting skins on, the more time I spend skiing.

I'd like to someday.  It's a long drive though.

That pic above is a half hour from my house and only about 5 people ski it.

4.5 hours.  Definitely out of my range for a day trip.

I have a hard time doing overnights now because of my kids.
