For someone like me who watched Marks video segments and was inspired to try things, it still seems strange that the pro’s I looked up to, looked up to other skiers in just the same way. These liners are a very rare prototype liner created specially for Mark to test. The X Wave was a hugely popular boot back in the early ‘s and I had a couple of pairs myself.

What do you use this boot for? Mark will I’m sure not mind me saying he is getting a bit older now and he said his view on the risks involved has changed over marj years.
Disciplines Big Mountain and Backcountry skiing. The one area that is a little different to what you or I could have is the liner. How long have you been riding for Dalbello? The kind of ski tours markk take me to the top of a sick pillow line. When he was younger his main goals were like many pro’s, to get the shot no matter what.

I had made a set of Sidas Custom footbeds a couple of years ago and he is still using them in the current boots. Thanks to Mark for answering the questions and for taking on the challenge. New Zealand and Antarctica What is in your pack when you go out ski touring? The first Boots Mark had for fitting were the new Salomon GhostI had already done some slight stretching but Mark wanted just a bit more adding.
While Mark was taking the boots off I got a quick picture mafk his skis. The above image may look like a fairly non descript liner but they are more interesting then they appear.
What are 3 things we should know about you? The culture so different and abna and we experience amazing conditions with no makr than 25 people on the hill.
Talking about older gear brought up stories of the Whistler Glacier back when Freeskiing was just beginning. They explained because they were testing new foams the heating process had to be very precise.

Most Humbling moment The first time I went to Chamonix. Mark Abma’s Choice Lupo Factory. Mark had been touring in the Ghosts and his answer for why he used the Ghost rather then something like the Quest was simple, for him it was all about the way down and he was happy to sacrifice some comfort on the up to get the ultimate ride back down.
In this time I asked him anma question from member Bogez “Do you sometimes feel as if the extreme risk involved in high level skiing isn’t worth it anymore? This week Mark Abma came in to get a little bit of boot work done and seeing how Mark always has interesting stories I wanted to share both Marks set up but also an insight into the man himself.
While Mark was packing up his stuff we chatted about what else he is doing other then skiing. I can not tell you much about the liners as honesty I don’t know too much about them but speaking to the French boot designers who dropped them off they appear to be Salomon’s take on an intuition liner. Food, tea, extra gloves and lenses, probe and shovel, inReach and GoPro. I seemed to remember it was 5 Minutes and at that time I took them out and they were perfect.
I learnt a lot from that crew. Biking, Kiteboarding, camping, hiking, surfing and building hobbit homes. Facts Date of birth Salomon had provided mark with a tech setup and he was kark on using these boots for longer tours. How did you become involved in Ski Touring? His main priority now is wbma ski as long as he can, he wants to ski to the day he dies so an injury now which could potentially take skiing away from Mark is just not worth it.
I’m a pisces and I drink a smoothie and tea every morning.
