Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2020-2021!)

Voile claims that all of there skis are designed for powder. In all the time I put on my vectors there was only one incident that the ski didn't rise up like I expected it to, and I am a little heavier than the recommended weight for that ski. It would be nice to have more wl options in that width r...

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

As someone who's broken more than one old woodie it makes me think that maybe they built a little more durability into the modern skis accounting for the extra weight.

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

No steel edges must be a big part of it. They may have also lost some moisture content over the years, especially if stored indoors.

Re: "Stupid" Waxing Question

Stephen, have you thought about covering them with duct tape and rubbing them from tip to tails with the peel of an over ripe banana ? Seriously though, give it a try it might do something. Only try it if the wax conditions are good or you may have poor grip.

Re: Kind of gave up

I guess if you want to get out with a group and ski whatever you find, it makes sense to go alpine. I ski by myself usually and only ski what's good for me, so tele is fine. As far as your quads, maybe it's because you went from weighting both skis in a turn to mostly weighting only one alpine. You ...

Re: Madshus Loke And/Or Odin

I think they would be a good deal for around 70 bucks or less depending what shipping is, just to get you started. On old skis like that I never wanted to pay more than what the binding is worth to me. If you didn't like the ski at least you have a binding. You may be able to put the bindings on an ...

Re: Madshus Loke And/Or Odin

Never heard of either ski, but if you can perform so should they. The Loke looks like a piste ski. What ski are you currently using.

Re: Favorite ski mountains in each area

Feeling antsy? Ready for snow? It's the only way I can survive Houston summers. Going to an ice skating rink helps, too!!! Good thing is that the same skill needed to carve skates can be transferred to carving skis and visa versa. I went to a skate rink a couple years ago and thought my rental skat...
