Re: Switchback X2

Nitram, if you can afford to keep those X-2. You’ll need them when you get the Voile Virus, I hear it is as bad as the Asnes Fever.
Good Luck in your endeavors, hopefully you will be farming lots of turns.

Re: Powder touring ski options

Wax is awesome in powder. X-skins are reported to be good in not good wax conditions. Read the X-skins Klister thread

Re: Nnnbc magnum bindings on wide skis???

I'll never get over those. I prefer to troll in my canoe. My favorite catch is king salmon. The rivers aren’t frozen currently I’m thinking about a little steelhead trolling. I think it would be more fun than trying to aggravate people. We have a great group here. We like each other. I also think w...

Re: Asnes Falketind 62 versus Rabb 68

Nitram, I read closely what Crister had to say about the FT redesign and it was focused on flattening the heavily rockered tail. I’m personally happy I have the old almost twin tip version as I want to learn how to land a Fakey al la Telemark, before I hit 60 ! ;) What you can expect from the FT is ...

Re: Boot Review: Crispi Lofoten 75

Gareth, I am very pleased to know conditions are ideal for you to start writing reviews. Would you mind comparing Lofoten 75 to the Alaska BC in terms of fit and the ability to transfer power to the ski. From just my perspective I am wondering if this is a boot that would allow me Alaska BC type per...

Re: Midwest Telefest Feb 7-9 2020

I hope to attend, but as usual my current project is behind schedule. I will play it by ear, but I could use a couple of days off and some UP skiing.

Re: Asnes USGI skis/bindings/boots

Fgg135, Wow! Great first post. I was not suggesting that the surplus binding was junk. I was asserting that it was not a good XC touring binding. The joy of touring is the speed of the kick and glide. I find the Alico Ski March to be a very supportive boot in it’s range, of which I would include the...

Re: help with mounting bindings on fischer sbound.

I have a pair of S-112 mounted originally by ORS. They were mounted for a 3-pin HW. I have both 3 pin cable which I intend to mount, and 3-pin HW templates. So I will provide original mounting in relation to boot center and balance point.

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

Happy New Year Gareth, we have snow and I finally had enough cover to take the Green Man for a ride. I wouldn’t want Santa to bring Nordic skates with your snowpack, you would have to give up skiing to keep the ice clean. Your photo of the pig with your daughter skiing, makes me ask if that is a spe...

Re: Asnes USGI skis/bindings/boots

Hello Andy, I own a pair of USGI skis. I purchased them for two reasons, I owned a fatter ski a S-112 and I wanted something skinnier for when my local single track trail was hardpack. I also wanted to try a waxable ski on the cheap. The USGI was a great cheap way to start using grip wax. I really l...
