Re: another ski recommendation post...

Oh- and BTW- the Fischer 78 is remarkably stable and supportive. It is just as stable as the 88 in deep soft snow, it just sinks deeper- but it is faster than the 88 on consolidated snow. If you can get a 199cm Traverse 78 at a low discount price- that would be an excellent place to start! (BTW- in ...

Re: New Rossignol BC skis for 2019-2020

The new BC 100 looks interesting. Like the dimensions for Nordic touring: 100-80-90mm (Rossi is still posting the wrong sidecut measurements on their website- they have been screwing that up for years!). Both the BC100 and the BC80 need to come in longer lengths to accommodate heavier skiers if they...

Re: another ski recommendation post...

I'm mostly in the Tahoe area, so it's a bit of everything, but more often than not, it's dense and wet, particularly since the snowfall seems to be coming later and later in the season these days. Some thoughts- I really don't think that any of the current Madshus XCD skis are going offer enough st...

Re: another ski recommendation post...

Hello and welcome Ed!

What is the typical snow like that you will be skiing on?

Deep, soft and dry? Dense and moisture-rich?

Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

Welcome, zgadow20! Very pleased to see another budding Nordic tourer join our site! Your Alpine skiing background will help you somewhat, but Nordic skiing is very different. My first bit of advice is to get out on the snow - a lot. The simplest and least expensive way to develop Nordic skiing skill...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Hello Crister- Could you give us some more information on your FT62 setup? Why did you choose the 3-pin Traverse binding and how does it perform on that ski? Do you always use the heel cable? What do you think of the riser plate on a backcountry ski that narrow? What boot(s) are you using with the F...

Re: Randonee (AT) vs Telemarking?

Welcome to our site! To add to Johnny's excellent post- I did a fair amount of big-mountain backcountry touring in the 90s in both AT and Telemark setups (I worked in the logging industry in BC and went on wilderness expeditions on my downtime with my close friend and mountain fanatic from Germany)....
