Re: Gear Basket

Why are these so cheap? -- because of the WL pattern?? and why is the waxless pattern variable? The pattern is variable because it is hand made as we can see in the picture. It is not factory made I think they are actually factory seconds, possibly prototyping waxless patterns or tweaking machines....

Re: skiing outside Seattle in the next couple of weeks..conditions?

Crystal has been limiting tickets due to crowds, from a recent report I received. Buy online for the days you are going, especially if a weekend or do your research beforehand.

I don't live out there.

I used to. Had a pass at Alpental. Fun mountain!

Yes, something weird has been going on for several weeks. From the amount of Cambodian soccer betting posts I have to keep deleting I think it’s some spam farm in the Far East.

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

This whole thread is all truth! I learned the Telemark turn on 88s, 189cm and 160lbs. When it clicks, it clicks. I still remember exactly where and when my brain rewired and I linked three turns in a row with relative ease. Low consequence slopes + speed helped me, I found it easier to use the centr...

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

Also, keep that BOF (ball of foot) down on your back ski. You MUST engage the NNN-BC rails to unlock that binding's potential. Coming up on the tippy toe and hitting the bumper is largely ineffectual

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

The 88s also have lots of camber. You are going to have to really compress that camber and bend the ski. Otherwise, ride it in long arcs. In this corner of the sport there are high camber skis that tour well and low camber skis that turn easy but are going to be a slog to go anywhere. The 88s are on...

Re: Broke my favorite resort skis :'( telebry saved my legs. Anyone know where to find used k2 sidestash?

Epoxy would be a good choice here, especially a good quality one. The area is relatively small and underfoot, flexing isn't going to be much of an issue. If you are using marine epoxy with fillers I'd soak the core first and then after it's absorbed I'd fill it with thickened epoxy. Don't let the so...

Re: New to xcd, need help figuring out gear for rivervalley exploring

I'm going to "third" the KOM. It's a real ski, it's fun, it's dependable, there are no gray areas.
