What do you mean by de-tuning? I've never really understood what I was supposed to do to the first few inches to "de-tune" it.

I do NOT like the taste of dem apples. That does sound like a nice light solution if weight is a priority.

Ok, I admit this is a good choice too, but you'll have to choke me with a compression strap to get me to give up my skins. EDIT: Question, where do you end up for total weight (skis, bindings, boots) for a setup like this?

Oh good, I was getting scared! My standard winter backpacking kit (no clothing) is about 20lbs. I always expect to carry more equipment in the winter than the summer - any extra energy I expend on the way out I get back on the comfortable ride down.

16lbs? Including boots and layers for 15F? That is either an exaggeration or extremely impressive.

comment How do you sharpen a hand chain saw?
Thanks for the video addition. You can grip the chain directly in a vise, just don't crank it down too hard. I know that is a bit vague, but when you've got it gripped, you can tell when you are about to crush something. Use rubber vice pads if you are uncertain. The sharpening will go a bit slower because you won't be able to hold it as tightly as a chainsaw bar (and hence, you'll need to take lighter passes with the file), but it will still work.
