arnaud de brux's Bio

Born and raised in South West France, I picked up skiing in the Pyrenees, before moving to Utah a few years ago. What a change (for the best): I (re)discovered what skiing really meant, powder days, shot faces and all of those fluffy snow goods! Also enjoy the MTB scene in the summer, along with some golfing and breweries visits!

Can I use those boots with a marker Tour binding or Salomon Guardian? They do NOT fit with regular salomon bindings, but are since I moved out of Utah and I have to travel with Skis & boots, I am considering putting AT bindings on all my skis.
I used them with Dynafit Radical right now, just want to make sure it would work with Marker's too.

Thanks!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had been looking at a new "do-it-all" ski for quite some time now, and was able to get a pair of the 185 Hell and Back.
They are mounted with Dynafit Radical ST bindings, and they RIP the entire mountain!
This set-up is light enough to do several laps in the backcountry, but also endure the in-bound skiing with some friends! To my surprise, even with the light touring bindings, once on the groomer, they just ask for more speed, and can slice through the slope, leaving nice, clean, deep trenches behind you!
For a 185cm ski, they handle bumps really well (the bindings become the limiting factor in my case), and it doesn't stop there. Once in the backcountry, they show the entire spectrom of their capabilities: flying down a bowl, technical turns in a tight(er) couloir, or just gliding up the skin track!
An absolute blast, for all but the deepest days!

I just got that bag from Backcountry, and it looks awesome. I really like the volume inside, as well as the fit of the bag over my shell.
I have one question / issue though... I cannot locate the re-arming tool to rearm the airbarg if you pull the trigger. It is supposed to be included, but I couldn't find it in the bag. Anyone knows where it is supposed to be?

Hey guys,
I am hesitating between these in 182 and the Atomic 185 Blog. I demoed both last year and had a blast on both...
I am 6' 210Lbs expert skiing and I do ski anywhere on the mountains depending on whom I am skiing with....
I do have a pair of Xwings fury in 177 and a Crossmax 8.9 in 175 for hard pack days or early season.
Live in Utah, so pow is not an issue.
Really enjoy skiing big powder bowls as well as tree lines...
Any recommendation?
Cheers!

Those are probably the best ski pants I've ever owned. I used to wear Columbia Titanium line, but was pretty disappointed with the durability and quality of it.
Those salomon pants are super confy, keep you warm and dry, and are full of small details that make the difference, like the magnetic closure on the side pocket!!
I highly recommand it for whoever is looking for a great do-it-all, all season pants!
