Re: Voile ski sizing for skier over 6’ and 200 pounds

When touring for turns, I ski the 180 vector bcs and my ski buddy is on the 182? V6bcs with 3 pins and Excursions and we are both pushing 190 lbs. IMO these skis tour(k+g) about as well as the Guides in unbroken snow. It ain't fast or graceful but we regularly ski 6-7 miles round trip to get to and ...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Oh no! Some "foreigners" are skiing on public land that you like to ski and-*gasp* they're using different skis than you are! Oh the humanity! It's not fair!

Re: "The Donald"

From an outsider perspective, I have no idea why social policies such as free healthcare and education are called socialist. Things paid for by taxpayer money in most countries include basic infrastructure for society to function: roads, judicial system with judges and prisons, water supply, railro...

Re: Choosing my first off track skies

I wouldn't think non metal edge skis are as critical for hunting with a dog as it is for ski jouring. If I were going hunting on skis in the forest I would be on my widest ones. They would work like snowshoes. Snowshoes that can do beautiful things on the downhill. I'm with Al on this one. I would ...

Re: Fischer Traverse 78 vs Excursion 88

here's a photo of my 78s with camber compressed. While my photo is not as good as yours, it does show the NR ending above the OTX graphic by a couple of inches. Much different than yours:

Re: Fischer Traverse 78 vs Excursion 88

Its crazy to me how short the glide zone is on the 88. I'm glad I didn't go any shorter than the 199. When you factor in the Nordic rocker there's only a couple inches of effective forward glide zone. They do climb very well though. Even without skins. Yes, exactly, you nailed it. This is why I'm a...

Re: NNN BC automatic

I have a pair of autos on some rossi bc65s and I've never had a problem with icing or anything else for that matter although I'm not using them in deep snow typically. That being said, I prefer the magnums if given the choice.
