Re: More Red Love

...I have lived in Michigan my whole life, and entering my 60th year have never had a winter where I didn’t wish we had more snow. So I try to enjoy what snow I have, as much as I am able. The previous 2 seasons in the UP have been too much snow. I NEVER thought I would ever say the words "too much...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

The nine inches of snow meant less base removable and easier sliding....Snow was good on top but the e99's dipped down and in....There, the snow was very heavy and tended to slow me down....(('s need speed to turn well and I was a bit or very conservative....Still some rounded turns through Hardwoo...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Traverse 78

I have been on my 199cm Fischer 78 a lot over the last month. This is an excellent distance-oriented trail ski- especially for highly variable transformed snow, ice, crud, and breakable crust... I've been skiing exclusively on my new 78's this young season. Our snowpack is very thin vs what we norm...

Re: Argh Can't decide which 75 mm binding for Vectors

In my experience the telebulldogs work real well with that type of ski but are not very durable. IMO sbx2's are overkill for that setup but regular sb's work well. 3-pin hw's would work well too although I prefer the free-piviot vs 3-pins for climbing. ? do the x2's not K&G as well as the original ...

Re: Anybody got some extra toilet paper? (Nordic is now cool!)

[*] I'm hearing about this a lot. I guess the silver lining is there will be a lot of used available next year when folks realize its not as easy as it looks. https://www.treehugger.com/nordic-skis-are-new-toilet-paper-5093393 Learning basic k+g in groomed tracks is pretty easy. It's even easier to ...

You could try putting the hh's in pin position 2 or 3 (more neutral) and seeing how that suits you.

Re: 3 Pin or NNN BC Magnum?

You can really go either way here. I would look for boots that fit the best and go from there. The advantage of 3- pin imo is that you can use a wider variety of boots than nnnbc. For example, you can use old Asolo tele boots or new leather boots and anything in between. Personally I prefer nnnbc fo...
