“Why buy two pieces of gear when one will do the work of both?” - Yvon Chouinard
Ski-touring, that’s walking - skinning in skiing terms - the mountain up and then skiing it down. It’s a great way to enjoy the mountains in winter and has similarities to hiking. But much unlike the light trailrunners I use from spring till autumn, in winter you need a ski boot. Happily I found after much research & pondering a boot which is light and performs great on the way up & down.
