Re: Season passes and Covid 19

Our local hill just released their covid guidelines for the season. Basically skiers must boot up in their cars, wear face covering, and maintain social distancing. Purchasing tickets is done online or with a $5 in person purchase fee. Season pass holders just go straight to the lifts. No congregati...

Re: Rossi BC skis- why all the negativity?

I have owned and skied the bc125s and the bc65s. I did not like either one. The 65s are cheaply made and the scales do not grip well when compared to other fishscales while somehow slowing down glide considerably. The 125s felt dead and heavy to me and did not k+g well due to lack of grip and lack o...

possibly as simple as a smear of compound on the inside that joins a smear on the outside through the hole.
That's how I repaired the hole in my bellows with sugru. As mentioned above, jb weld is too brittle and does not bond to the bellow material.

Re: has anyone figured out a permanent fix for holes worn in boot bellows?

*Sugru does not bond to oily plastics like polypropylene, polyethylene or Teflon™." Scarpa's are, I think, made from PU and PeBax. Unless someone here has tried it with good results on ski boots, I'd sure want to find out if Sugru will reliably adhere to those materials. I've used sugru on the bell...

Re: has anyone figured out a permanent fix for holes worn in boot bellows?

looks like the right sort of composite. how does it hold up to ski tip rub? I've used it on ski tips where the edges were worn or chopped up and it works ok. There's probably better products out there for that use though. What's nice about sugru is that it's moldable and flexible while it still hol...

Re: Season passes and Covid 19

Is your local mountain independently owned or is it part of a larger group? The small indie mountains are getting slammed without deep pockets... (of course that being said we're about to see how deep Vails pockets really are after last year's acquisitions, they may not be deep enough). Family owne...

Re: Voile Vector BC Binding Choice

My 180 Vector bcs are mounted with regular switchbacks and Excursions. I use this setup for touring for turns in the hardwoods in deep snow on short steep hills and I can't imagine a better setup. My ski buddy uses a similar setup except he uses cableless 3-pins and rips it up.

Season passes and Covid 19

Our local hill is offering season passes this season but they state that they will issue no refunds in case of closure due to covid 19 regulations. What is your local hill's policy about season passes/opening/covid-19 safety? Are you buying one this season or not? Is your local hill even opening thi...

Re: HyperV6 + NNNBC- crazy idea?

I dunno. The lightest I would go on the v6 would be t4 and the telebulldog 3 pins or voile 3 pin hardwire. These skis are for charging, not lollygagging around. The control you get with v6s and plastic boots is amazing so you can ski tighter lines more aggressively. Your terrain and snowpack is some...
