Re: Seeking wisdom, or at least opinions...

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

Woah Woods, that is pretty close...! They might not be from Japan... Perhaps the letters APA meant something else... Composting was not as bad as I thought... I was able to fix pretty much everything with just epoxy... After shaving 1mm of the top, it seems like the cracks that were worrying me tota...

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

Yep, time and nature magically turning traditional camber into NR... Isn't that beautiful? (Camber is still going very strong on the laminated Miner woodies... While all my 70's and 80's skis are dead flat. And that's the beauty of wood skis, camber can be shaped every year with blocks according to ...

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

A few things I forgot to say about the Miner Woodies: - Skimeister P-Bex (who is over 80yo) came here yesterday... According to him, they are definitely NOT from the sixties, but much older than this... (" Why in the world do you want to ski these old planks?!? " he said with a disgusted face...) - ...

Wooden skis from the skies

familleminer3.jpg My hometown, now with over 70,000 inhabitants, was once a very small hamlet on the old Mountain street. We owe the entire development of the town to the Miner family.
