again. But right now we're certainly on working on the fringes of skiing to be prepared. Sure. Yeah. And I think it's smart. You're gonna be happier if you just have separate equipment. But at the same time, you know, do you wanna have to go out there and tell everyone that they need four bikes and five skis and you know that? Then we just start toe, get into a weird spots where you have to be just ridiculously rich toe do these things. So yeah, I think it's smart. Thio, you're gonna enjoy yourself better if you have an uphill set up right, And you're not using I mean, g s. When I started, I had secure fix on regular GS boards. Yeah, that's, you know, we have a podcast. Thio called totally deep, and we've been doing that for seven years now, and it's one of my most common asked. First question is, what was your first set up? You're on and everybody has been touring for more than 10 years. Has a bit of a horror story of where that started, Which is why I was just saying air like because my first set up was you know, Paranaque so bindings that I think we're only made for a year or two. But it was like a so heavy as a duke, but broke a lot easier on. Kept you a good, like 8 to 10 inches above the snow. When you're skinning, it's like you're teetering on some sort of platform shoe or something, right and using a full Alpine boot with no hinging walk mode at all. And and if you can avoid yourself a little of that heartache, you don't have to spend a million dollars to do it. You know, just just pick a good, comfortable booth that that's got a solid walk mode and started heading uphill. Exactly. Yeah, Boy, it's amazing that we stuck with it sometimes when I look at the way we learned Mountain bike and kayak and uphill back country tour back in the day. Yeah, I certainly teetered on the verge of tears my first few times out, and I think about how much different my life would have gone if I would have just, you know, through those things in the garbage one all the way back to riding lifts. It's funny, so one thing we like to ask everybody on the show is about a piece of advice that they have that they still remember when they're skiing. You know, it could be something you know, we've heard from, you know, pro skiers who have a sort of a mental mantra that keep themselves charting in the game we've heard from, You know, technical skiers who are, you know, have advice in with Chin to win, Put shins in front of the boot. All sorts of good advice is there. Is there anything that resonates in your head that you've been telling yourself for? You know, your entire career on skis that you still say to yourself when you're out on the hill to keep it specific, you know, it's my zone again. It Zen joy the whole day, the uphill and the downhill, you know, as one journey in the mountains. And I think so much. Now we think of skiing as a downhill sport, and that's what it what it's become with chairlifts and gondolas and high speed everything. But skiing originally was, you know, across country sport. Now, uh, you know, we have this amazing equipment to do either, but I still have to remind myself all the time on a ski tour that every step you're taking uphill, you should be enjoying instead of just thinking about how you could get it over with faster, because then you're really gonna have a sad couple hours on the way up the hill. A good advice I enjoy Enjoy both the
