Re: I might have some issues

The results were ... interesting. I found them too heavy for climbing in deep snow as well as anything beyond "survival" turning on downhills. Then again, I'm not much of a telemarker. They were decent for just straight ahead kick + glide. Still on the heavy side though. Oh and they are super cool ...

PS: Norseman sells the new Asnes ski line. I doubt they have those older real cheap combat skis you have been linking to here.

Re: Fischer E89 Crown

Sometimes the mind distorts things when the memory is foggy... such is the case here. I want to revise some of my comparison to the Glittertind as I skied them today over the exact same terrain. Warm temps warranted waxless skis for everyone... The difference in turning along a trail, not descendin...

Re: Keister coming off. Abrasive snow

By the way, what conditions are you skiing in? I assumed, talking about klister, that we were going in tracks. If you are in the backcountry, extend the grip zone to as far as the entire ski if necessary using the hardwax of the day. I bet you will eventually get very good results with that. As for ...

Re: Keister coming off. Abrasive snow

We have had terrible ski conditions this year with about three weeks between snowfalls. This makes the snow super icy after melting and refreezing . I tried blue klister but it came off my skis after two minutes. Do I need a binder klister? If so, what works as a binder? This waxing business is a p...
