    I have a pair of 2013 Blizzard Free Cross 178’s (effectively same ski as Dynafit Seven Summits - 113, 78, 100 sidecut) mounted with Dynafit TLT2. Happy to sell either with or without the bindings,

    I bought the skis new for about $450, happy to let them go for $150 to a forumite. The skis are comparatively lightly used (I mainly tour with my patterned base skis) but the bindings have seen about 4 seasons of good use, but still service-able - maybe I’d let them go for about $300. So $450 all up.

    https://www.ski-review.com/ski_reviews/review/blizzard_mountain_free_cross_2013/

    A light woodcore ski with a Titanal topsheet - weight 1500g per ski.

    Good for beginner to intermediate touring, but will chatter at higher speeds, especially in firmer, more icy conditions and on groomers at speed.

    It’s in good nick. It’s a reasonably good width for Aussie conditions, but will be too light for most skiers, especially someone who wants to charge.

    I’m upgrading to a set of DPS Cassiar Alchemists.

    Pick up in Melbourne, or I could post at cost anywhere.

    Do you have skins to match?
    Would you sell the bindings without the planks?

    On other matters, is there a walking track between Bluff and Lovicks huts or do you just plod along the 4wd track?

    Yup - do have matching skins which I would chuck in for $50, and would probably sell the bindings without the planks if that would help a forumite.

    Between Bluff and Lovicks it’s mainly along the track although there are sections where a walking track cuts more directly across some bits.

    Not sold really - I’ve decided to give these skis one more season, but if anyone was REALLY interested I would probably let them go.
