Very clever, if it stays put. Will have to test that out tonite, but it may not work for me at the angles i ride. Good thinking!

Cool idea. I used to do something similar when carrying the board on the pack, but my axe was way too long to wedge in with my boots in the bindings... It looks like from your pics that you can insert/remove the axe w/o having to take a boot out?

i just untie the rear boot, step the axe loop (->important) and tie the boot again.
It gets really fixed there.

next weekend i'll find even less snow, but there is no line with no much snow... only slack surfer! :)

OH my god- someone rides down holding an axe in their hands? Welcome to a broken face or stabbed gut! Put it on your pack- buy a pack w/ a axe attachement area or lash it to the very back. Dakine makes the Poacher- great pack for backcountry pursuits. Been using it for years.

I'd like to see you tell Stephen Koch that, after he boarded the 7 summits.
:lol: There are actually quite a few people that use their axe while riding down. I can't say I'm always totally in agreement, but if you check the recent Mount Johnson TR you'll see Bcrider using his.

You're a bit late... this debate happened about a 2.5 pages ago on this thread. :D

Oh, and I met the caretaker at Tuckerman's Ravine in NH that is on the Winterstick test team (He offered to let me take his Splitstick for a run, but I was too tired at that point to hike up for another go). He had a fresh scar on his cheek, and I found out it was from an ice-axe. I'm thinking he may be the guy in the article referenced previously in this thread.

I'll take a scar on my face or a puntured gut if it saves my life.

I'm not arguing that at all. Hell, I always wanted an eye-patch to turn on all the ladies when I say "Arrrr!" :wink:
