Re: THE GREATEST bindings debate on the planet (Official thr

Who will be the first to post a ZIP file here with the first home-printable tele binding?

I can't wait for the day when we'll share our homemade 3D bindings... I would print myself a 6-pin binding for duckbutt leathers...

Re: Ski Lite /XCD

Yeah I remember those pictures... That used to be my favorite thread on the old TTalk forum..! I didn't buy a season pass this year... I decided I would spend my 180 days of ski in the woods this time. So instead I put my money on a pair of Alpina Alaska 75 boots. I've had plenty of boots before, As...

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

Yeah I think it was this article (And his book, and the fact that I was working at a cross-country center last winter) that got me into it. I don't know much about XC...

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

I've been skiing on pins and leathers about 50% of the time in the last 5 years... Both on piste and backcountry... But even if it's already perfect, I feel like I could really fly with something even lighter...! Downhill and uphill... I've seen people doing it here and it looked REALLY fun...! I kn...

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

It's funny because as everyone is getting fatter skis and beefier bindings, I'm now going the opposite way...

Re: Tele Technique and Form

If you're into technical stuff, you should really have a look at Ron Lemaster's book Ultimate Skiing. From carving to boot fitting, it brings ski physics to another level...
