Re: Alpina Alaska real, real bad sizing...

Anyway, my main point was, if LaCordee can rip people off in every single possible way, they sure can mess up with labels and tags on ski boots just to liquidate their stocks before closing... Or maybe the 16yo clerk in Laval who never skied mixed up demo boxes, boots and insoles...? I think Alpina ...

Re: Alpina Alaska real, real bad sizing...

A couple of friends received their stuff in multiple shipments. As soon as the pack is sent, they charge it to their account. A couple of friends ordered respectively 3, 4 and 5 weeks ago, got their card charged and still didn't receive anything except cheap bad excuses. I feel so bad for them. Can...

Re: Alpina Alaska real, real bad sizing...

Proofs? Just use common sense... Look at the numbers in La Presse... I hope our friends Asnes in Norway didn't lose too much... No need for any "buy local" bullshit anymore, the poor local manufacturers will NOT get their money anyway! La Cordee can legally continue to steal customers money without ...

Re: Alpina Alaska real, real bad sizing...

What's that shit? I do not understand... A manufacturing error? I bought 5 pairs of Alaskas from different years/versions without any sizing problems. I wouldn't badmouth Alpina... They are one of the finest sport company out there. I respect them a lot... But I sure would put the blame on the shit...

I'm not lookin for power from my boot.
Get a pair of 500g skating shoes then... Add a few grams for tech inserts and you have NTN-BC leathers...

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

Johnny, I read your post on the Ousland being smother than the Gammes but could you delve into a comparison between Gamme 200cm and Ousland 210. Would a longer Ousland turn (or arc...) like a shorter Gamme? From a technical point of view yes, having slightly softer tips will sure help turn initiati...

Wait... The T4 is 6 lbs and not much better than a pair of 4lbs high-quality leathers... 8-)
At 7lbs, the Shiver is slightly heavier but MUCH more powerful...

I had them all... And a pair of Guards or Alaskas with inserts would be the ultimate dream...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

I train & race skimo style, but can't give up the tele turn. Drugs, booze, girls, alpine, meat, fat, sugar, salt... All pretty easy to give up... But the tele turn is a hell lot harder to get rid of... I'll never give up my plastic boots, though. I tried "skimo-ing" with Rossignol BC-X12's & Voile ...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

I have no interest in heavy or expensive tele gear. I just want to XC on wider skis in steeper terrain. The ALFA Guards are 385$... If a NTN version ever sees the light of day, I doubt it will be cheaper... 8-) In the meantime, NNN-BC is your best friend... but why stick with leather? Because for p...
