    Great video Stephen. I would love to see more. So, I know you have a pretty extensive section on the gear you use, but your boot/binding set up in that video didn’t appear to be strap bindings and soft boots. Just curious what you were using there.

    Scarpa F1 boots, Dynafit toe for skinning as binding and a pair of custom Burton race plate bindings mounted to Voile plates.

    Hi Chris,
    I was using Dynafit Binding toe pieces, Scarpa touring boots and for the descent I frankensteined an old pair of Burton Race Plate Bindings onto the the Voile Split Binding Kit, which can take any binding, including a soft binding. A functional way to go for plate snowboard bindings is the Voile Mountain Plates that slide onto the disk. This setup saves weight. Hope this helps.
