im getting a set this year, seems great to set the boot pack up a small zone, or kicker that you sled into. The spark ones with a set of puck on your regular board should be great for lift serve slackcountry.

Verts are awesome for setting boot packs. You got that right.

All true......however this winter while ya'all are flailing in the snow trying to do kick turns on the steep sections I'll be stomping up the mountains a pair of these verts on.

Honestly probably wouldn't have been that bad had it not been so dam icy, that was probably the most un-enjoyable thing I have EVER done in the backcountry in summer or winter, I wanted to drop kick a baby 3\4 of the way up!

Did you forget? I wasn't flailing. I was on the ridge waiting on everyone. That was a day to forget that's for sure haha.

Hmm I remember someone smashing their face bloody on the less steep(but crazy icy) sections in the pitch black dark before we even got to the crazy steep part.........

but yea you were the only one looking even remotely graceful on those steep sections, I thought I was doing great before we got to those wicked steep icy shitbacks.

Ski crampons can be pretty helpful too...

Yes. I've used them on icy skin tracks quite a few times. There is one traverse at Bert that I bring them along every time as I'd rather not go for over a 1k vertical slide down a notorious slide path. Again, something I don't use often, but I am glad to have when I do need them. I also use my ski crampons more than I do my Verts.
