I am trying to decide what ski to get next year (because I have a problem)
@bwm8142
What's the problem you're trying to solve by getting new skis? Technical problem with the old skis? Manifest destiny of the ski quiver?
I've seen this before. A classic case of G.A.S.

Re: How important is ski weight to xcd skiing?

I get more tired from things like poor kick or glide or squirrelly skis that don't track straight than from ski weight.

Re: How's the ROM in the Scott Excursion

I agree with the above posts. Only think to add is to mention that the plastic that the Excursions use is softer than the plastic used for the t4s so the Excursions flex in a more "natural" way

Re: Skiing squirrel ?

Wonder if that squirrel chills with river otters. They seem to really enjoy sliding around in the woods and down hills too

Re: Vector BC Binding Finding

...I didn't read the whole thread but I saw it mentioned that K&G doesn't matter that much with such a big ski anyway. I have to disagree, my wide skis, Charges BCs,112UF glide as good as any scaled ski I've had and my insanes glide as good as any waxed ski I've had. If people feel like they are sh...

I use Excursions and SBs with my Ve...

Re: Newbie looking for the right advice and gear

Not much to add to the advice above. I'm in the UP and ski Vector BCs for skiing similar to what you describe. IMO, use the T2s for Bohemia and more challenging terrain but also keep the T4s for longer tours and less demanding terrain.

Re: Can big guys with bad knees tele?

Just a couple of quick thoughts: 1. Your skis are way too short especially for anything involving soft snow. 2. Bad knees and extra mass and tele seems like a bad idea especially considering that most tele bindings don't release in the case of a bad fall. 3. Have you considered an AT setup? I don't ...
