Re: Randonee (AT) vs Telemarking?

Hey Cope since you're into winter hiking you may also enjoy cross country skiing. Telemark is just xc on steroids for me. People have been doing xc for years because it gets you where you're going and it feels good. AT may get you where you want to go and it's probably fun, but I don't know how good...

Duty on items shipped from Canada to US

I am in the process of buying a used tent from a guy in Brantford Ontario. He suggested I pay the shipping cost when the package is delivered so there won't be any holdup because of a possible duty that is due. Does anyone know anything about a duty on used items going across the border? The tent is...

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

I can't speak for Crister but it may be because it is the only light weight 75mm binding with a cable still in production, that I know of. It tours great w/o the heel throws on and is surprisingly capable for the downhill. I used a 3p cable mounted on HW risers on vectors this year and they were mor...

Re: Randonee (AT) vs Telemarking?

If you are in it as much for the hiking (touring) as the downhill you can go with telemark gear and do P turns and you won't have to learn new skills right off the bat.

Yes it was, but it lacked a smooth flex and the tails were not supportive enough. The UV fixed the problems but otherwise skis the same.

Re: Really New Skis

While I certainly see people skidding and sliding around on powder skis on consolidated snow- I personally don't get it. To each their own, but I personally want a ski that will charge and hold an edge on hardpack- I would think that I would "prefer" the UV over the V6 on hardpack- though I much pr...
