That's actually rather bad ass. Never seen it before.

I don't carry any tools on hill. Like others said you can usually find a bench with a screw driver. Then the lodges usually have stuff you can use. I have also asked lifties before when I needed a phillips and they have in the hut every time ive asked. I assume most of them would have a Phillips if you asked.

For an iron I just use a cheap $10 one I got a wal-mart. I am getting a Dakine one this year tho for my "shop" I have set up in a spare room. Dakine has a nice tune up kit you can get that comes with everything you really need and a nice carry along T shape driver.

Yeah, bringing tools are pretty pointless at a resort. The benches or rental shop will have whatever you need, and I have never met rental staff who wouldn't let you borrow tools. I would only bring something if your going backcountry. If you're still looking for a tool I like the Dakine Torque Driver; it's small and it's all I have ever needed.

I use the Burton EST tool. It's awesome because I only need a #2 and #3 Phillips for my bindings. It only has both of these and a bottle opener, and it simply unfolds so it can easily be used with gloves on. It also comes in a load of colors to choose from. The best thing about it is that it's all one piece, so there are no small screw heads to be lost in the snow like with the Dakine tool that I previously used.

This is a tasty burger.

I always check my stuff and rarely need to adjust/tighten things, but carry a pocket burton tool...and therefore I have met some nice damsels and have let them abuse my tool

I keep a hex driver and a couple of metric allen wrenches in my pack...the only tools I'll need to tighten anything on my boots or bindings. The pack stays in my truck or the lodge, though. The only thing I actually keep on me is my cable lock.
