Duct Tape!!!!     05/31/2008 00:36
Glad to see the super tape job held up to the mighty Columbia. I thought we were just putting tape on there to you could label LEFT and RIGHT!?!
Nice job slaying the mountain and Hudson.


nice report     05/31/2008 02:10
how do you like those kilowatts? I just got a pair this winter with dynafits and they rip! Nice report


Bindings     05/31/2008 05:04
Nice job on a semi-solo day. It‘s great to see how happy a day of playing in some snow can make a pooch. Out of curiosity, what happened with your Naxo‘s? How the heck did you come up with replacement bindings so quickly? Assuming that you used the duct tape to cover the old mounting holes, Tognar carries some threaded inserts you can use to plug the holes to prevent future delamination.


Nice job Jordan!     05/31/2008 15:28
I‘ve been thinking about this route for a little while now. What would you say is the average slope degree? Good luck on your next big solo ski!


There are a couple     06/01/2008 23:06
shops around here that still have bindings in stock, so I picked up a pair and off we went. We did plug the holes with some glue, the duct tape was just to make sure the glue was dry.

Love the kilowatts, own more than one pair right now.

Not too steep 35-40 maybe


I‘m too heavy     06/01/2008 23:06
