Bring on the Snow. I'm thinking about making the switch too. I need new boots, bindings and skis. Now would be a good time to make the move. Hmmm

Scarpa's have always fit my wide feet(3e's) better than the Grammonts. but I have always popped for heat moldable inners as well. So I do not know what is on the market for that. As for binding's, I have been a fan of Rainy superloops then the hammer head, now the design 22 hammer heads.
I looked at the new NTN stuff, releasable and failry heavy compared to the old style toe and hammerhead binding. But it looks like it would put more edge down on the hard stuff than any old style binding. Just do not know if it will be a light set up. The design looks more like a resort set up than BC. So I am opting for waiting until I return from California work trip. That Way I can demo the set up for a couple of days to decide if I want to go with the NTN set up.
I need to see how the insurance will go for the Contents of the out building. I had a ton or two of stuff that has value to me. But maybe not to the insurance company. So far they have been generous to us. I hope it continues.
I will be looking to ski a bit more this season.

Was at Gary W's house this morning around 8:30 and also got snow. A nice group of elk were bedded down in the meadow covered in snow when I left.

If you go that route, there is a 100 rebate for purchasing boots/bindings.

most boots come with thermo-moldable liners these days. You probably knew that.
