Default Verts

For this season I picked up a pair of verts and will be getting the Karakoram attachment kit. The one thing I am curious about is that if you are attaching the bindings to the verts, how do you ensure the board is stable on your pack?

Split it and A frame it on your pack. Use a Voile strap. Best way to carry anyhow.

I assume you a frame it, then voile strap near the top of the 'A' .. Kind of seems obvious now. I never liked putting it in A frame before with because I let the bindings sit on the bottom strap and it was too low. Too much of the ski came out the bottom.

There is definitely a happy point for setting up the a frame. The voile strap helps make it carry better. For the record, I put bindings above the top strap. When I need to boot or vert up something, trees are generally not something I have to worry about. I am usually doing that in alpine terrain, which I assume most people would be.
With the a frame, it keeps the ski tails out of your way when you are walking. Overall, just an easier way to do it. There are plenty of times where I also use the regular board carry of course. Don't discount the option though.

+1. Tho I put the top strap through the binding/over the binding base, to keep them fixated and avoid the clap-clap-clap when moving

Thanks for the help. Did a few a frame experiments, got a pretty nice setup now. For me it will be the same, when I am using my verts, trees will not be an issue. Mainly steeper chutes or steep open faces.

for this i prefer the two skis of the board base to base, voile strap top and bottom, and diagonal across the back of my pack kinda like a rifle. nothing wrong with A frame tho.

I just kind of strap my down and it works pretty well but its only a 156 so it doesn't get caught in the wind as much. In this particular picture I just left the board in two pieces and let my bindings kind of hold it together. was super quick in/out by leaving the skins on.
