Re: 2022 Falketind 62 Xplore 196 cm First Impressions

Thanks for the review reborntelemark ! This week, I skied a 34 km XC-BC tour on my 196 cm Falketind Xplores up in the fjells. Snow was hard, you could ski through forests without your skis sinking at all. On the other hand, the snow was soft enough for blue wax to grip. IMG_6212.jpg Before going out...

Yeah I had the outsoles come off on two pairs of Pi Tech. I am switching to the Pi Pro for the last 700 km of my ski through of Norway now. I'll get back in a couple of weeks.
@Theme Thanks for the info! And by the way, congratulations for reaching Nordkapp. Wow, a great achievement. Kudos +1

Re: Style

I would say A Tele, but I come from a PSIA Alpine background. Now I believe @lowangle al would say B Tele. Also I saw some nice tracks from @tkarhu made on Gamme’s with B Tele technique I would still say A Tele ;) ! fisheater Thanks for remembering me! I had a couple of months break in skiing becau...

Scarpa T4's size 290 for sale

I am selling a pair of older Scarpa T4's. Size is 11 / 44.5 / 290. The boots are in good condition. Delivery within EU would probably make sense.

Re: Learning to turn with Gammes

Another day on Gammes after transitioning to b-tele! Snow was somewhat challenging today. We had 40-45 cm of powder, which was great. However, temps were rising, and the snow felt heavy. Further, wind had started to create crust. Also, there were many tracks already, mostly of snowboarders. In today...

Re: 2022 Falketind 62 Xplore 196 cm First Impressions

I had an oppurtunity to ski downhill in 30-70 cm powder with my new 2022 FTX’s. The skis are 196 cm, for my 83 kg weight. I also skied some XC on my way back, it was a nice and sunny blue wax day :) On a 10°slope, the FTX’s worked well, when there was about 50 cm or less powder. In 70 cm of soft sno...

Re: -40°C in Finland

First Arctic trip I did, my -45 rated bag collapsed due to moisture (bad management on my part) on the night that the mercury hit -40 C. It was beyond unpleasant and borderline dangerous. I since learned about VBL bags and use one now... life changing! I'm a very hot/sweaty person though, so moistu...

Re: Pinnah's Simple Kick Waxing For Touring

@Lhartley I think too much wax can also make snow stick, when weather gets weird. I normally put 3-4 thin layers or less.

Re: Pinnah's Simple Kick Waxing For Touring

@tkarhu which Vaughti Carrot are you having good success, I found a few variations on my wax supplier’s web sight. Speaking of Vaughti waxes, under some situations I find Vaught Pure Pro White to be Nordic magic. It’s a wax that works really well, when it works in temps just below freezing. It’s ra...
