Re: Alfa Greenland 75 Advance Leather Boots

Very professional video, thanks!! The leather workmanship on the Alfa boots looks like very nice quality. it's interesting, and somewhat sad, to me that most boot companies choose the thinner, glue-on 75mm sole instead of the traditional thicker welted version. The glued sole is definitely lighter w...

Re: Northwest Coast of Norway!

what's up with this "gnome" stuff, I noticed this store has a "troll" section https://oslosweatershop.com/ I've been migrating my clothing back over to wool after wearing fleece for the last 30+ years - tired of wearing plastic. High quality wool is so much better. I've got some Dale and Devold swea...

sounds cool, I can see how the pulling the load would be better than carrying it, if the trail is smooth and gradual.

Re: Circumnavigating Crater Lake March 10th-12th, 2020 on Altai Hok Skis and Pulk Sled

what a trip! It looks beautiful, the weather is perfect. 8000 vertical? were the ups & downs mostly gradual or did you have to make downhill turns with the pulk?

How do you like living in Bend? Has it become super-expensive or otherwise ruined? :lol:

Re: NIB Andrew Shoes Zenith 12.5 US, Alico Ski March 13 wide

The Ski March are very different IMO - much heavier and stiffer all around. More padding inside the lining of the boot. The Zenith are similar to Crispi Antarctic and Andrew Refugio, only slightly heavier with a little more stiffness & support in the back of the boot around the ankles. And the buckl...

Andrew Shoes Zenith size 12.5 US which is 46.5. Turns out I take 47 in Andrew. New price is $350. Will sell for $280 including shipping i...

Re: Favorite places to XCd in Vermont? Taking trip next tues-thurs

Never heard of Northeast Slopes before - very cool! Will have to check it out. I love T-bars. T-cat yes, to ski the Notch you drive up 108 through the Stowe resort and Route 108 terminates in a parking lot at the closed gate. A stone's throw from the Stowe parking lots. 108 continues up the Notch an...

Re: Skins and wax help!

you're wondering if leftover glide wax will interfere with applying polar or green?? Maybe...they'll probably just blend together. I would get something to clean the bases - either a ski base cleaner or just a bottle of "goo-gone" or other citrus cleaner. With rags from an old T-shirt these will tak...
