poutanen;749681]The other thing about backcountry riding is you'll be riding almost all untracked snow, no?
Sure, that's what you want. But... I don't know how it is at your mountains but here madame nature can be very nasty... we have a lot of stong winds that blow away the fresh snow from exposed ridges. Thus sometimes you have to negotiate frozen snow fields to get to the fun run
Hahaha... they only have the Solution in 168w... bit big for me
Went to the local shop today. They have one single split for rent: K2 Panoramic 161 (with Spark). Other splits would have to be sent by post (for 150$ a day). I guess I go for the K2 then...
