Forgive me if I use the wrong terminology! Feel free to correct it!
Typically, the snow melts after 2-3 days, then snows again. So far, we've kept about 2ft+ of hard pack crusty snow, covered by about 8 inches+ of light fluffy powder, for over 3 weeks now. Its still snowing! Temps about 10 F.
I'm looking at some gear to cut tracks with, ski over the same tracks, over Mid-Atlantic terrain. Hardwood forest, with rolling hills, some brush, rocks, etc. This is generally the same terrain I ride my mountain bike over. (I'm working on a picture or 2, download isn't being cooperative)
I have demoed before, and will do so again, when they quite closing the roads over to Whitegrass!
I don't care about going fast. I like durability, I'm currently hovering at 200lbs. Some lateral stability, would be good if I would like to make a turn or 2. I would like a boot that I could also use if I were to get something wider like a Karhu 10th Mountain.
The gear I have selected.....
Does this stuff sound good? Suggestions?
I had liked the look of the new Fischer BCX 6 boot. But I can't find the new ones in my size (45).
I don't understand 3 pin setups. They seem to be used for anything from strict XC, to light tele. Should I go there?
