Re: The Finest Leathers: Nordic Norm 75mm Backcountry/Telemark Boots

Thanks for that explanation TM. I agree that the stiff camber can create more energy coming out of a turn. This is a good thing because extreme unweighting leads to extreme weighting and that is what you need to get dbl camber skis to turn. That being said I have had skinny alpine skis that gave a s...

Re: Just impulse bought new skis on sale, what do you think of the set up?

You'll notice a lot more responsiveness / edge control with those boots... i.e. smaller movements to make the same turns. This is true, the tradeoff is that you may have to readjust your stance and or learn how to pressure the new boots while staying centered on your skis. Good luck with the new ge...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

I was going to mention that this would be the year to fly up to the Ruth, with no or at least very few out of staters.. Were you climbing or just skiing? A spectacular place, post more pics.
