Re: Ideal living locations

Norway is on my destination list eventually, I liked Pinedale, WY small town . Just like a guide who took a group of us out to Rocky Mountain National Park for climbing, he had to live way outside the city which was Estes park just to afford an apartment, multimillion dollar homes all over.

Re: Remove plastic caps from Voile risers

Anemic, Nope, I was adjusting the heel pad location a bit before I screwed the screws all the way down and the back one popped out, I hate mounting those, they better be useful when skiing, lol I had to pop those out only on the front riser because somehow I didn't screw it flush enough with the ski...

Re: Ideal living locations

Wyoming would be my pick, You've got Jackson hole, the Tetons, Wind River Range, Yellowstone and Colorado, Utah and Idaho on the border. Though for my wife, who is from Poland, if she wanted us to live there, I'm ok with that too, Tatra mountains and easy access to other European countries by rail, ...

Re: Remove plastic caps from Voile risers

I didn't Epoxy them in, the way I hammered them out with a small screw driver basically made a very small hole right under the top on the side, so I think they'll be ok I just popped them back in.

Re: Mounted these Voile Hardwire and Madshus Epoch

MikeK ya that's the issue, lol. Hmmm import snow? Unless we have a freakish snow storm down here, I'll probably not see snow till May on Mont Blanc. I might not get to use these skis until Feb or April of 2018, well at least they are ready.

Re: Mounted these Voile Hardwire and Madshus Epoch

I'm not sure why these were harder to mountain than the Voile traverse, maybe they put the wrong screw set in the box, they were all longer screws, the same size as the heel plate screws, those riser bars about kill my hands putting them on the heel pads, especially if they come off while mounting, ...

Re: Remove plastic caps from Voile risers

Thanks for all the recommendations, I ended up using a small screwdriver and hammered into the edge, small hole on the side but I'll epoxy it.

Falling with no release

Is this much of an issue for us newbs, skiing on 3 pins and falling with no release plates, I know it's recommended to roll forward but doubt it happens that way everytime, how'd everyone deal with the issue starting out?
