Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

Tried nnn when they first came out.....Mostly I have done things on feeeeel, nothing else....Pins feel better in all conditions for me and I ain't no hippy or yuppie :D ....Don't think it makes much difference whatever speeds your skis.....If you learn at an Alpine area it will be difficult to trans...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

At the Sugar House I'm kind of an observer....The young ones have passed me by....My new job is to be the oldie curmudgeon.....Have to "keep them straight"....Mostly it's a lot of laughs and some hard work....Splitting and stacking several cords of wood....Firing up the rig and opening the red doors...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Sugaring was sweet.....!!....Bout 70 gallons and the place was full of Sugar Children!!!! I shudder to wonder what they are like when they get home....You know how good it is just off the rig....Where did you get the ft-62?....For real unless I got some seriously sharp edges and the Alpine area wash...

Re: Randonee (AT) vs Telemarking?

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

What does the FT stand for?.....The 62 is possibly the ski that can ski the downs well but are a bit slower on the cruise?....Could these do the job at a ski area if one went there with them?....Ski in lots of areas with lots of touring.....Always going up to see what there is at the top....AND have...
