Re: Time Travel

Oh I forgot to add, even if they weren't logged, a lot of areas in Adirondacks burned due to the logging and drought. I think a lot of the High Peaks Wilderness is pretty young. Plus I think that type of forest resets itself a bit quicker because the environment is harsher - bigger storms and lands...

Re: Time Travel

a summer hike of the Hopper trail is needed to scope out the area! I've never set foot on that side of the mountain. Greylock is a great place, the views from the mountain are spectacular. It gets neglected because the White mtns. are the same distance from Boston. There's also a road that goes to t...

Re: Time Travel

wow Mike, that pigeon wilderness sounds amazing, there is some nice stuff in the western Adirondacks. It seems like there is a lot of old growth hanging around the 'dacks. I did a couple hiking trips in the high peaks and it looked like the upper elevations had never been logged. I wish the 'dacks w...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

I think that means you have to buy a dog to go skiing with you! Next dog I buy is going to like snow - Chihuahuas are not good skiing dogs :lol: Breidablikk would be good for any tour that doesn't involve ice or crust. will be lighter-weight than edged skis I find E99-type skis (gamme54, etc) turn ...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

these skis all work well - you can do what I did - go with the best artwork/graphics. I'm getting the ones with the dog next!

Re: Madshus Glittertind Wax vs Asnes Amundsen

If you can get the snow right, it's great skiing. There were some guys ATing up on the higher bald summits the first day, first tracks, thigh deep, all the way down. Apparently, those conditions are not super common. I was glad someone was taking advantage! I love skiing wow, sounds cool, the Goodm...

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

Mike - I tried a pair of Mountain and didn't like them for the reasons you mention - they're too low in the back to hold my heel down well. Looks like they've been discontinued. I would go with an NNNBC boot like Alaska over the Mountain. The Antarctic are still comfortable for striding but do much ...

Re: Fischer 2015-2016 product line-up???

The air core does make incredibly light skis - I wouldn't mind trying the current E99 in 210 or the E109. They need something to screw the bindings into though. I wonder if the current E109 has air under the binding section as well.

Re: Madshus Glittertind Wax vs Asnes Amundsen

we've got tons of nice touring trails like the Sourdough in the northeast mountains, but CO has the wider spaced trees and multitude of open bowls we don't have. there's lots of stuff to do around here though - I've always wanted to hit Acadia in Maine with good snow. The carriage trails would be a ...
