Part of last year's bumper crop. Time for me to pull the bindings, change boots and move on...
Skis only, no bindings.
All are in exceptionally good condition tops and bottoms. One mount with Dynafit Radicals on the Protest, and Huascaran. Speed Superlight were mounted on the 182 GPO. Radicals and then Rossi Axial 2 on the 192 GPO. There are no lemons here.
Add actual shipping costs via US mail to any of these skis or boots. US sales only. Pay Pal preferred.

Much of the cream of the outdoor specialty world is eventually here. I don't review, buy or sell 2nd best. But I can't keep or use it it all. I'd ratehr see it used than hanging or sitting in my gear room being wasted.

All the skis have new or like new bases and top skins. Unless noted all have been mounted for a Dynafit Radical toe pattern and any assortment of Dynafit tech heels. Depending on ski boots used are a 28 (307 mm) or a 29 (317mm) shell. Ski do not include the bindings.
This a big surfy ski @ 115 under the foot. Another ski I really like. It is big , bad and will go any where. You'll want toi make sure you have the boots and the legs to drive this one. But if you are looking for an amazing soft snow or heli board and have the stones to drive a 196 this is an exceptional ski. Mildly rockered tip, up turned pin tail and light weight by comparison to others. No problem holding an edge with these on ice, surfing a spline or ripping a straight shot at max warp. I am keeping a short pair of Huascarans for back country missions in tight terrain. Lovely ski! These have freshly stone ground and prepped bases and edges. Better than new.
Video on the details;
retail : $899.
Boots? Again all in exceptionally good condition. Many of them are virtually "new". Ask me via email first if you have condition specific questions. I can only use and climb in so many boots and skis. My gear room isn't that big. So if any of these interest you.....all are screaming deals for condition and price.
Salewa Firetrail GTX size 12. $148. new-- $75
Scarpa Aveolite lace up liners. Good for most plastic double boots. $30, size 11.5. Older version but looks to be the same pattern here, but elastic in the toes, no laces. unused
Boreal ACE is a fully lined, medium stiff, all-around, low cut shoe equally competent climbing micro-edges, cracks and friction slabs. The ACE has probably been used to put up more hard crack climbs in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Joshua Tree than any other shoe - except maybe the BALLET GOLD. If you wear a men's 10.5 US street shoe (UK9.5) order this size for comforatable crack climbing and long routes. I you want the ACE to be "stiffer" for standing on knobs and thin edges go down 1/2 size to a UK9. Like new, USA 12 $100 plus shipping. ($139. retail)
Boreal, bright blue Ballet Gold, size 10.5 UK, 44.5 Euro, minor wear on a new set of thin C4 soles by Remuta when the shoe was new and prior to climbing on the original. $50
New old stock La Sportiva Syncros (white purple laces)
size 44.... $50 and shipping
Mtn Hardware pants
Ridgetop, 3/4 length, soft shell pant, $40, Large (new with tags or just new) black. Perfect summer alpine pant. Not bad as a winter pant either in mild conditions.
Ridgetop pant being used at the Ice Fest, Hyalite Canyon, late Dec 2010
