Touring

Growing up in Canmore has exposed me to mountain culture like no where else would. Taught as a ski racer and now stepping into alpine climbing in the summer, I hope to check some classic and not so classic lines off my list of objectives. Touring hotspot is along highway 93N. There are so many cool alpine features to ski and climb.. Although some of them are deceivingly far away the Alpinist will surely get me there faster and without any technical failures.

The kingpin 13 but I think the alpinist will be My new favourite
2. Why?
The king pin is an incredibly robust double use binding. I've seen carter macmillan win hardpack freeride comps on kinpins with ease. Obviously an awesome touring binding. Looking forward to the simplicity and reliability on the alpinist. Not only is it fast and light. It's alo dependable when you're way the heck out there.
