Backcountry ski boot repair. There we were, skiing in the backcountry at 9,000 feet in the Sierra Nevada in midwinter, 7 feet of snow, and over a mile from a plowed road. The sole of my friend's ski boot completely delaminates, leaving the upper boot still on his foot, but the separate sole attached to the ski. Walking out without skis was not really an option. Some duct tape and zip-ties held the separate boot parts all together for the 1-mile trip back to the cars. For those unfamiliar with free-heel backcountry ski bindings, only the toe of the boot is attached to the ski and it needs to flex repeatedly with each forward stride.
