  • Spring Tour at Carson Pass-Trip Report

    Low snow year this year but still great spring ski touring up at Carson Pass in the Tahoe Backcountry. My ski buddy Billy was on his Hagan 130s direct mounted with Fritschi bindings and I was on my new garage modified Spruce riser with Dynafit bindings. It was a beautiful very warm day!
    Here I am reaching a meadow before moving on to our final climb to the summit.

    Here are my Dynafit mounted Spruce risers in climbing mode. The green strap is for a strap on crampon that I used to climb up a steep icy section before reaching this meadow.
