Re: Eastern pennsylvania xcd spots?

It’s still skiable in my neck of the woods. That five inches has been holding up for ten days so far. As it got thinner it got tougher and gave better protection from the rocks than when it first fell.

Why not? If you'd like it for Alpine you'd like it for tele.

Re: Filling in the Groove

Hey Ben, is the groove in he newer or older model, Or why the difference? Hi Al, my grooveless Ingstads were of the "white man" sort, a relatively old version, old by still new enough to have the skin traps.

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

Thanks Ben, we probably would have waited a long time for the "XCD Knights" to get this straightened out. The weight makes them look pretty appealing at just a little over 3 oz more than a basic 3 pin. The boot looks good to me too. If it had the DH control of a T4 and toured like an Alpina Alaska a...

Re: Filling in the Groove

Unless you're skiing in machined tracks on classic skis, I don't know that you would notice any difference whether the groove is there or not. Only other nordic skis I know of that really really need tracking grooves are jumping skis. For your info I have skied asnes ingstad skis on the flats in fr...

Re: Eastern pennsylvania xcd spots?

Interesting heel pieces on those Insanes Al. They look quite “rustic”. :D It shouldn't be surprising for a guy who skis in jeans. I have limited gear here in Pa and don't know how I ended up with SBs w/o heel risers. I grabbed the first piece of hard wood I could find which was a piece of a handle ...

The upper picture is snow on the ice . It's about 6' thick with some open spots from springs. The snow was real nice, the sun was out and I had a blast.

Re: Eastern pennsylvania xcd spots?

I feel like I'm in ski country, the lady in line next to me at the super market was wearing xc ski boots. She said there was good coverage at Gouldsboro State Park. I skied every day this week, good stuff.
