    I seam to break gear continuously. I recently got my skis tuned up before a big traverse by the folks at Norseman’s (they did a great job) and they let me know that despite pristine bases (my advice is just don’t hit rocks, doesn’t seem like rocket science), the tops of my skis were more beat up than anything they’d ever seen before. I felt special.

    Anyway, given that I’m lucky if I can get two seasons out of a ski setup, I was interested to see what ACMG Guide Cam McLellan had to say in an interesting write up on finding compromise in going light – light enough to tour, but heavy enough to not fall apart. The result is he ends up with a touring setup that looks catastrophically heavy – but he got a 100+ day season without destroying his gear, so what do I know…
