Re: Toe bang, really want to make boots work.

So the injury has become a medium term, subtle arhtritic feeling behind both toes. Really surprised as they weren't extremely uncomfortable and I had no warning. That is why I didn't follow up or try to use them. It could be that I'm a 27.0 excursion shell also but thats unexpected because I thought...

Re: Toe bang, really want to make boots work.

I knew the advice to see a bootfitter would arise. Its just not convenient at this place and time. If the boots do not fill an area, molding will not help. Heating a liner allows a liner to fit better by conforming to foot. The liner does not expand. I’ve purchased two new liners from Intuition and ...

Toe bang, really want to make boots work.

I had a little pain in my big toe sockets (first joint, technically the feet) after the last time with Excursions. It wasn't a lot, but it was the sort of deep sensation that causes me concern. These boots opened me up to a new type of skiing, and I really want to get back in them. I have tried on a...

Re: New Super Tele's and full thickness soles?

Ski Marchs in EU44. I can close the bail to the middle position, too. If folks here use both, Ski Marchs and Alaskas, they could give you information about sole thickness. The ST with cables are an awesome binding! My experience is different. I mounted some STs because they were 50% off. Ski marche...

Re: Front skins with kicker skins instead of full length... anyone tried this?

@John Dee Are you referring to a racing skin? example: https://www.pomoca.com/skins/014-race-pro-2-0 Nope. I went to a shop in 2022 for climbing skins, and one of the options was 3/4 front to back. I don't recall much else except they were dark orange color, and that they were a fairly common skin ...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Put some old NNNBC bindings I had on my Hoks using the AltaiSki adapter plates. I ski 3 pin but my rock skiing buddy is on NNNNBC and wanted to give them a try on some crusty hiking trails. I think he’s gonna do some bushwhacking too. I just recently learned of the adapter plates and was thinking t...

Re: Front skins with kicker skins instead of full length... anyone tried this?

They sell 3/4 length skins fairly commonly. So you can look at reviews for them. I think its economical more than anything.

Re: Technique feedback thread - post a video.

- I have found success with a tighter and more rear-ski weighted stance. - Bring skis closer together (in the left-right axis). I have been told imagine you are holding your car keys between your thighs. This helps with the concept of turning your 2 skis into one big ski during a telemark turn. Lea...
