Skins or shoes
So I have the SFBs with deadbolts. Is there any way to put skins on and have some sort of free heel device that clicks in to my binding, or would i have to have my heel in binding? In that case should i get snowshoes? Can i get snowshoes to go over my ski boots?
To properly skin you need touring bindings (ones Jon has in TBC, allow your heel to be free) or you could just do it with you heel in and it would prob be ok, not as easy tho. And i don't think they make snow shoes for ski boots, that would be pretty cool though.
ummm, yeah, anyone ever hear of trekkers? I hear they may, just may, be the solution to your problem...
what do you care what I do with my underpants navy?
Pretty sure there is no snowshoe for ski boots but snowshoes are great. I have a pair that I got when I was like 12 and I still have them. They're awesome.

roadkillx69x: yeah. but i can't remember how to spell it
you can use snowshoes fine with ski boots. but if you get some trekker bindings you'll be in a lot better shape. you can either get straight up skin bindings or you could get something like the at trekker which would work with your current downhill bindings. they will be super heavy, and a bit of a pain in the ass to handle, but you can still use your regular bindings for downhill use. either way, you'll have a much easier time getting around in the bc using either one of these methods. snowshoes are so last season.
Backcountry Access ALPINE TREKKERS. They're the same concept as a AT binding, but you click into them, then click them into your regular bindings. Or just drop the skrilla and get Fritschi Freerides. Either way you'll need skins.
