Best way to hike a ridge line with skiis? - Page 2

post #31 of 39

you are blowing my mind man. your narrative is worse than those crazy drawing with the solid line and the bold lines and the dotted lines and the arrows and the steps one through fourteen woven into a story about a rabbit and a tree and a burrow and a tar baby. how about a darn picture, or three. kidding. yes, a friend of mine just whips out some webbing and presto....skis on back, one pole in each hand. I'll get him to teach me this year; I'm a poor knotster.

Use that at the top near your shoulder running with the webbing under the toe piece of each ski. This will hold the weight of the skis. Then have something like a taught line hitch on the under arm side which you can adjust and use to keep the webbing tight.

 

Or just do two slipknots and get the length of line dialled.

 

Google for the knots.

Haha, sorry. I was in the boy scouts and have done just a bit of climbing. I just assume everyone knows this stuff. I might wip up a video tonight and see if that doesn't help.

thanks. I'm just cracking up and sharing the mirth. knot tying is a right of passage (boy scouts) and a most unusual skill. when I climbed a little more than lately, I studied knots from books a bit, and thus the sometimes success and sometimes failure resulting from following those diagrams. the drawings of the water knot (for one example of many) were quite elegant, therefore a really fun knot to learn from a book. I may get back into it a little on down days.

Would be much appreciated if you have the time! I like to sail but hardly claim myself as an expert on knots.

You must be from another country. "Post" around here, especially as a verb, usually means posting something in a thread online like I'm doing right now. We mostly use the verb "mail" where the Queen's subjects would use "post."

 

I scratched my head when I read your post a minute ago. Then I laughed after I'd returned to the main forum. Then I had to come back here to explain the humor in such a way as to beat any funny out of it completely. You're welcome. yahoo.gif

Dakine Heli Pro 20L (last years model) or a Dakine Heli Pro DLX if you have a wide powder ski with rocker.  I have a Pro 20L (last years) and i find it a little difficult getting my S7's through the one size loop at the bottom of the pack.  The DLX has a cable that goes around pretty much any size ski, and i bet with a little practice you could do it without taking off your pack.  There's always a deal somewhere for a dakine pack.
