Wanted Want to buy Womens Alpine Touring Gear

Discussion in 'For Sale' started by Sarah71985, Feb 26, 2018.

  1. I want to get into backcountry AT skiing. I ski downhill, groomed runs and my husband telemarks and I'd like to be able to skin uphill with him and go more places than just the groomers.

    I'm looking for boots, bindings and skiis. I am a 9 1/2 in womens, I do not want men's gear. So that would make me 26.5, I would consider sizing up to 27. I don't want super wide skiis, no wider than 105. No longer than 160. I think it would be ideal if I could find a package deal somewhere. So any leads, advice or anyone selling their setup.. please let me know! I don't have a lot of money to spend, but would really like to get into the sport and see more backcountry! Thanks!

  2. if your on a budget the struggle is real and I feel for ya. I was just in Northwest Outdoors the consignment shop in Spokane on division. It's a cool shop and they had lots of alpine touring boots (pretty sure they had some ladies options, some scarpa freedoms I think in your size for crazy cheap) and three or four pairs of backcountry specific woman's skis for a decent price. If your really committed to getting into the sport I'd strongly suggest getting a tech binding or at least getting a boot with tech fittings so you can always go that route eventually. It's fairly easy these days to find affordable frame bindings new or used but you end up lifting a lot more weight every step of the way. For Skins just expect to buy new ($110+)or maybe get lucky online for some used ones. I find the older generation black diamond skins to be extremely reliable with easy to find replacement parts. I feel like skis are the easiest to find at a decent price (anything relatively light that's got a little width) Good luck on your journey. It's well worth the effort to shop around and now is the best time to find deals on new gear.
