Re: Skifabrikk

2 year old video - look at this comment - they've moved production to Czech: The production of Gamme 54 is now moved to a factory in Czech Republic. The same factory also produce Amundsen/Liv/Cecilie/Nansen and other models from Åsnes . The quality is the same, and the processes is similar. The bigg...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

Mike - I think the sale prices started in March last year, best to keep an eye on the Neptune website. those Dynastar have thick metal sheets in them, one is broken, no way I'm ever getting on them again, I won't be age 22 and going 80 mph anytime soon! totally agree on the lightweight-ization of sk...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

wow….I want to be in Stavaskarnuten, right now! although it's probably dark for the next few months. I would take E99/super tele on those open mellow pitches….skiing the uphill part would be so easy. we're all different - I'm a little crazy - if I panned that basement pic over a few feet you'd see m...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

this guy is loving the Breidablikk…no dog!



Out and test new fjellski, easy skareføre.
Very good ski to the rugged terrain, very soft and good.
Was filmed on an incredibly idyllic day at kallingsheia.

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

>>I thought they were a fairly stiff ski. The only thing close to being as stiff I have is the E89. I didn't like the mountain crown scales - great glide, not so great grip... typical for a negative pattern. this brownish vintage E99 is a stiff ski with soft tips that make turning easier. I actually...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

I could not resist the Asnes spring sale at Neptune last year - I went with the Gamme 54 - 210's - basically the Asnes version of the E99. (at some point in spring all the Asnes skis they have left go on sale). Comparing those two skis - the Gamme 54 camber is the same height off the ground, but the...

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

re: learning, all I can say is find some consolidated corn like the "youngster" in the photo above. That is where I was able to figure out how to tele turn on light gear. Still flailing in deep powder! As a lifetime alpine skier I found I had to force my legs into tele turn position before starting ...

Re: East Coast S Bound advice

I'd probably go with Sbound 88's and 78's. For me the simple 3-pin and lightweight boots setup isn't enough to control bigger skis, I have trouble rolling them up on edge, but I have weak foot bones. I've always needed more supportive boots. The 88's will be different with less camber, they should c...

Re: Leather boots care and maintenance

this stuff works great on my Cripi Antarctic and Alico hiking boots…pretty far from being vegan though!
