Re: When skiing was beautiful, an art, an expression of self..

Artistically I hope my skiing is as good as it was last year. I brought down the house or got standing Os on all but a few runs. 8-)

Re: New Rossignol BC skis for 2019-2020

Verskis doesn't Asnes have a ski that would work for you. I would go with a ski that everyone is raving about, either Asnes or Voiles. Rossi recommends there skis for the near expert skier. Maybe that's because you need to be a near expert to get them to work?? We talk about good skis being "easy to...

Re: Gear Basket

You get what you pay for, and judging by the reviews I would think they are worth what they cost.

Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

I've pretty much retired the T2s in favor of the T4s Bob. They don't have that ski boot feel, having full ROM of the ankle yet they hold an edge like a plastic boot, for me anyway. My wife loves her T4s for touring but I think her DH performance was better in T2s.

Re: another ski recommendation post...

Hi Ed, my opinion differs from the others here. I prefer heavier equipment with a T4 or excursion type boot and a shorter wider ski even on low angle terrain. I have no problem going out for 3 or 4 hours covering 8 or more miles with that gear and it doesn't feel sluggish to me. The heavier gear is ...

Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

I don't doubt it at all Bob, there is enough slop in a leather boot 3pin binding combo that it wouldn't be hard to improve upon. If the boots were as stout as something like the old Merril Ultra I could see nnn bc superior. I guess the beauty is you don't need such a beefy boot. My thinking is that ...

Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

I know that many disagree - I find I have more downhill stability and control with the NNNBC versions of most of the BC-XC boots (e.g. Alpina Alaska/Fischer BCX6/Rossi BCX6). Ahhhhh...! I couldn't agree more... It's always such a refreshing feeling everytime we hear a bit of pure wisdom... 8-) Reme...

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

Nick, the big downside to TTS is that they don't work with leather boots and I think boot choice in general is also limited. You can also mount a Voile 3 pin cable on a riser that has climbing bars.

Re: Duty on items shipped from Canada to US

From the picture it looks complicated to set up, but it's not. It only takes four stakes or tie down points to set up, in a storm it takes six. It only takes about ten minutes or less to put up, but you can keep tweaking it to make it better or adapt to condition.
