I'm likely heading to Tuckerman Ravine in a few weeks and have been fooling with tying my skis on a backpack. I got them secure using A frame method. But it seems like the ski brakes might end up poking me in the sides. I'm rigging them on a framed typical but small backpack. Would it hurt anything to forcefully close the brakes by tying them closed? The skis are not really going to fit clean against the sides of my pack. It's only a 3-4 mile walk with them, so i don't need the most perfect set-up, just something that'll last that long up and down.
