Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

btw, nice photos from Norway! I would love to visit someday. I always wanted to ski there and maybe get those fancy expedition Alfa boots and do the Spitsbergen, Svalbard crossing on a long pair of Asnes skis.

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Here in Alaska, they just wrapped up grooming last weekend as the snow gets too soft along the trails... but off piste K+G / crust skiing early morning at 3000ft+ is still fantastic for at least another week. And up high at 7000+, the skiing was the best spring skiing ever last weekend. After more s...

Skiied and climbed Sovereign Mt. (8849' ...highest in the Talkeetna range). The chute was straightforward going up, but terribly b...

Re: Tele lite: 3 pin to NNN transformation

wow! That's crazy! I definitely will not be trying this one at home.


But will such a rigid boot cause the NNN BC binding to break prematurely?? I don't know if NNN BC can handle a plastic boot like that.

Let us know how it performs!

Thanks

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Right now, Hatcher Pass is pretty great. It has been very sunny. Hard crust in the morning, soft corn/mash potatoes in the afternoon. I have been skiing around 10am to 3pm. There seems to be a 3hr sweet spot. I think we have another 3 wks left of the spring snow season...then a break for a month bef...

I am in Southcentral Alaska.

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

I'm glad you had a good trip Joe. What kind of amenities do the huts have? Are they just like forest service rental cabins? When your s125s wear out it might be time for an Ultra Vector. Except for Serenity Falls Hut (which sleeps 13 and has a wood stove), the other 3 are MCA huts with only $30/yr ...
