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

Teleman, FT stands for Falketind, I think that translates to Falcon Peak. The FT 62 is fun on the downhill, with good control. As for skiing the groomed, the ski is a hoot as long as you are skiing on snow. Last winter we went cold to rain. The FT probably isn't the best on glacier base with tilled ...

Re: Randonee (AT) vs Telemarking?

Johnny and Lilcliffy gave great answers. Lilcliffy has a great manner of analysis and I generally either agree and and have admiration for his well thought out process. In this matter wouldn't consider adding to his post. I am not familiar with Andinista,however I thought he gave a great answer. To ...

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

Crister, The link below was my attempt to explain how the camber works on the FT 62. I also attempted to explain why I get a little "wax drag" on hardpacked trails, why the ski with just a small amount of soft snow exhibits such good performance "walking", and why it arcs so nicely in the snow. http...

Re: Avalanche

I forgot another thing that was important to the 80 year old man. The knowledge his time for sharing these adventures with his grandchildren was closing. The determination to share the mountains with his grandchildren as long as he could must be strong. I can't help to have anything but admiration.

Re: Avalanche

After reading the article it makes sense to me. As people get older there is a a school of thought that they need to be protected from themselves. It's likely only hiking with his grandsons, both still in their teens, both still embracing and loving newfound personal freedom of being teens. Not only...

Re: Paddling Biking Fishing Gardening

Al, thank you for sharing. I usually paddle on the big water of the Great Lakes, or find my self paddling upstream to fish downstream. I rarely use my hand carved otter tail paddle, relying mostly on the power provided by my double bladed (kayak) paddle. I admire your ability to handle a tandem cano...

Re: Skis Stuck In Sweden - how to get them to the USA?

Sport Albert shipped my skis to me via DHL. I think DHL may have a larger European footprint. ...and Treefallen, you seem to have your share of lady friends. Just saying...;)

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

Crister, I have been attempting to explain how the wax pocket works on the FT 62 for quite some time. I think you did a good job explaining how it works. I enjoy my FT 62 very much, I have been skiing it for two seasons. I mounted mine 3-pin cable and enjoy the combination. I am another member that ...

Paddling Biking Fishing Gardening

I thought it would be nice to keep up with you guys through the "growing season". My fishing season started right after the thaw. I went out for Great Lakes white suckers during their spawning run. While they may not sound like a fish you would want to eat, they are excellent on the table. This was ...
