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.
Oh come on Josh The Agenta slide path is a totally viable option and the quickest way to get on top of Kessler. You will see this year.....
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!

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.
