What bindings do you use?
The Jester Pro, Schizofrentic and Duke
Why do you like this
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. I like the Schizofrentic while Heliskiing or
Sidecountry skiing because you can adjust your stance depending on the
conditions, how hard you want to charge or if you want to land backwards off of

Alaska in search of deep snow, pillows, spines, cliffs and anything else to
huck my carcass off of.
