 Searching for some snow   

Got out for a nice solo tour in the James Peak zone. The search for early season turns continues. This was a fun little tour and it needed to be as I got a super early alpine start at the crack of noon. Made pretty good time in shoes to the summit and found a surprisingly long descent. I ended up dropping in to the saddle gully between Parry and Bancroft. I skied 1800′ of vert with a short little walk for 50′ of vert.... More words and pics at my site makingturns.com

They are Ski Logik Pitons. It's their light weight backcountry ski. Though it's plenty stiff for steep lines.
