Re: Asnes quiver of two

BGregoire would know with his Amundsens, maybe. YO BEN!? Yo Woods! How ya doing? Looking forward to another great season I hear? Totally right about your BC ski options for tracks. However, I assumed Dany here still prefer a ski that performs better in the BC and AT skinning trails (and on hut to h...

Re: Asnes quiver of two

For an all Asnes quiver of two, your case 1 examples are good options. Keep in mind some of those skis like the Gamme are perfect for hut to hut tours in the Gaspesie park. I have a pair of Asnes Amundsen 200cm that I could trade for your Nansen's, what length are they? For your case 2, I would disr...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

More thoughts for Nitram, in the hopes he can be a hero and abstain from compulsive shopping! ;) Although I cannot stand cables (3-pin traverse) with a softish leather boot, several friends with very big feet swear by 'em. This surely has to do with the mechanics of the system. I think the 3-pin tra...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

It seems that I am the only one on this forum without a pair of those boots... Before I do buy them I just want to be sure that they are way stiffer than Alaskas. I kind of think that the Alaskas will be too soft for my new Raab that I will use for tour and turn. But I don't want to commit for eith...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Man Martin, You really got hit with a bad case of upgraditis. Usually, when you get your significant one involved, you are in deep deep trouble. If you want a stiff sole, you cannot go wrong with the Alico Ski March (make sure you get the proper UK size). There are several advantages to the T4/Excur...

Re: Recommendation for XCd ski for central Alberta foothills

Lilcliff is right, in cold dry snow, its nice to have a ski that floats well. But don't waste too much time looking for 250cm skis in North America. You will not find them. Besides, I have spent some time skiing and living in both Sweden and Norway, and I have only seen LONG skis on snow ONCE. A rea...

Re: Recommendation for XCd ski for central Alberta foothills

195 will be easier to turn and skoot around trees. 200 will be faster on the flats. At 160lbs plus small pack, personally I would not go for a ski longer thanks 200, maybe 205 in a pinch, but I have a lot of trees to dodge here in eastern Quebec.

Re: Recommendation for XCd ski for central Alberta foothills

HI! If you are on a budget just go for the first pair of E99-style (Fischer or equivalent spec'qed ski) ski you can find on the used market in the APPROPRIATE LENGTH for you, say 195-200cm. Fishscales or wax is mostly a personal preference according to local conditions. If you get the skis cheap eno...

Re: narrow xcd skis- to mount a riser or not- that is the question

As some of you know now, I am one of those weird peeps who converted from NNN-BC back to 3pin for BC skinnies. This is also the case for my E99s (Make sure you get TM's opinion on this, :lol: !). They are just so much more fun and easier to turn whenever I point them down with that boot/binding comb...
