Re: Any experience with the Alpina BC-1600 Boot?

I've had the BC1600 and can vouch for them - great boots! The manufacturing has changed a couple times, the last pair I saw was using really nice leather vs. the earlier versions which had stiffer, cheaper leather. It's too bad these aren't distributed better in the USA. So much better than the synt...

Re: Kicker skins suck, wax and fishscales rule!

don't give up on the kicker skins - try a narrower one, or you can also start with an Asnes kicker skin and start trimming the back end shorter until you get the glide you want. I took a pair of Asnes nylon kicker skins with my Gamme ski and started cutting off a few cm a time until the glide felt j...

Re: Merrell Ultra boots

Take a look for yourself. Generally if they fit, you’ll find a spot in your quiver for them. I like mine. everyone on this website should have a pair of Ski March's! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: You're talking about a boot that would cost $400 in a store if it was a regular commercial product. I think I pai...

Re: Talk me out of wax skis (combat)

kickwax is much easier than glide-waxing a snowboard - there's no iron, no covering the big surface and then scraping it down. You just chalk-on some hard wax to the middle of the ski and rub it with a cork a few times. You can lean the ski up against a tree and do it in a few minutes in the field. ...

Re: The new Rottefella Back Country binding system

I still own and use my mid-90's K2/Shimano Clicker system - integrated step-in boot/binding system for snowboards. It included snowboard bindings, snowshoes and approach skis. It was a great idea, I"d love to see the same thing for skiing. Not sure how much a nordic skier needs snowshoes though. May...
