Dynastar Intense 10 | Women's On Piste Ski

Dynastar Intense 10; My First Impression of my New On-Piste Skis.

I read reviews and opted for the Dynastar Intense 10. They hold edges like I’m on rails. They turn when I want them too. They deal with lumps and bumps with ease. If I had one niggle it would be the weight; not noticeable when in use, but they are heavier than my other skis when carrying them from bus to lift to piste.

Carrying skis when Back-Country Skiing with a Thule Upslope

Thule Upslope Backpack in Use Back-Country Skiing.

After record breaking snowfall in our part of Austria and the magnificent job of the piste-teams to make the mountains safe, those off-piste activities can now begin. With shovel, probe, extra clothes, food, drink, camera and other essential back-country skiing kit packed, we ventured out. He’s the Thule Upslope Review update.

The Thule Upslope on the Piste

Initial Review of Thule 25 litre Upslope Rucksack.

As we venture further and further away from the piste, we have acquired a Thule 25l Upslope ski rucksack. We’ve not had this pack very long and it hasn’t really been tested ‘in the field’ yet. We’ve been skiing at the Hintertux and Snowshoeing at Penken, so thought we’d share our initial impressions with you.
