What bindings do you use?
The Jester Pro and Duke
Why do you like this binding?
I really like the Jester Pro because of it’s wide platform that allows you to initiate your turn earlier then most bindings, it’s also highly durable and has a metal bar that allows you to kick off ice and snow easily without damaging the binding.
I like the duke because it is easy to use in the backcountry and I have full confidence in charging any line after I’ve skinned to the top of a peak, which I can’t say I’ve experienced with any other backcountry binder.
Where do you mount them?

I usually ride on 15 or 16.

Goals and plans: My goals are to keep traveling the world skiing and pushing myself in the backcounty while creating something intriguing for people to watch, learn from and enjoy. Life is about sharing your experience with others so why not try to inspire them to explore and push themselves. My plans for next year include traveling to Japan and Russia, BC and Alaska in search of deep snow, pillows, spines, cliffs and anything else to huck my carcass off of.
