Re: narrow double-cambered off-trail xcountry ski

Not much talk about the Alpinas - do they still make skis anymore? I've noticed a few models here and there at shops but I never bothered to try them. From my understanding the NARROW ones have zero sidecut (whereas as the XCD ones have tons). I tried one pair once for 30 seconds. Great for crossin...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Got tired of very primitive sleeping arraignments at the ski hut, so we hauled in a futon and frame yesterday. I ended up mounting my old Olin Extremes (anyone remember those?) onto the legs and hauling it in 2 miles with my Bravo, which happens to be the same vintage as the Olin skis! 1.) At home, ...

Re: RavenTele / Ron

I can ski better than 98 % of the people out there and I am now 55. Chances are I ski far better than you. The best skiers I know rarely toot their own horns. What does your bragging have to do with anything? conny , you are sort of right . I think it's not attractive to be arrogant. I am still ver...

Re: Rossignol BC 65/nnn-bc

I don't have any complaints about the 'lack of grip' of the Rossi scale pattern. My ski buddy on the Fischer Spiders gets about the same grip as I do on my Rossis. Sometimes I think I might have better grip that he does in certain situations. I think that a lot of it has to do with snow conditions a...

Re: RavenTele / Ron

There's no such thing as mediocre skiers or good skiers. Only people having fun playing outside. Even as a "Certified" telemark instructor (Wouh! Who cares?!?), I never judge a skier by his angulation, the symmetry of his skis or the height of his arms, but rather by his capacity of having fun and ...

Re: narrow double-cambered off-trail xcountry ski

No offense to the spider 62, I'm sure it's a fine ski - but I think they are marketing those skis a certain way to a certain person: I watched this video on their page a while back because I was talking to someone about these skis, and compacts in general: http://www.fischersports.com/en/Nordic/Off...

Re: narrow double-cambered off-trail xcountry ski

For my newest addition to my "quiver" I am looking for a traditional, narrow, double-cambered xcountry ski (waxable). The use is speed/glide-orientated, off-trail xcountry skiing, on gentle terrain- on dense and/or hard snow (I have wider skis for soft powder). I keep getting drawn to the Madshus G...

Re: Coolest of the cool

Does anyone remember the old dual t-bars that took you to the summit of Cannon mountain? Those things were more of a challenge to ride up on than the ski down was!
