      Depends…if you’re out for fun, a latte+salmon bagel while you surf the new at the local espresso joint, dawn patrol, 12k+ of vertical laps in one of your choice locs in the Rockies/Sierras, finished with some PBR’s with the bros, AT is great and makes perfect sense. It’s also a great way to train at ski resorts/sidecountry and focus on downhill skiing and using skins with your team. If you’re out for long-term/range stuff and most actual work (and not talking about ski patrol at the resort, which is legit work) where the goal is movement over snow and route selection is based on mission, not recreation, plastic AT boots and clickety-clack dynafits/G3/fritschi/traab etc. have a tendency to fall short in a few key areas, especially if you’re in real cold and supply/support isn’t close at hand. There’s a role for both and anyone who would operate in the mtns should be able to handle skiing with a ruck on both tele and AT setups without too much trouble.
