Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

Yes that's an option but here where I ski, any steep downhill is for sure followed by a flat section somewhere and that's the main reason I'm XCD skiing. And also XCD is still a challenge for me... I think going down a steep powder field or trail on nnnbc gear is the closest thing to real surfing on...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

I don't know what your experience and skill level is- and it is difficult to tell too much from a first-person perspective... Yes its hard to compare our selves over an internet forum. (especially with first person videos) I can say that I am pretty experienced, I started skiing at 3 years old and ...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

Yes, I would like a ski like the ingstad but wider! With wider ingstad's, I would go shorter like 195cm instead of 205cm without loosing much flotation. And I believe it should be easier to navigate thru tight and steep forest. But I mainly want to see that old Jackrabitt face on a pair of Asnes ski...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Excursion 88

I understand now, when you say "round" flex, you mean single camber, or a ski with very little camber. So something like the Falktind or Rabb from Asnes except narrower. I think the 88 is in the camber and a half category because it has a very high camber, relatively easy to squash and round flexin...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

I got my self a pair of ingstad bc 205cm last February, I was tired to kick and glide on low angle downhill with my Excursion 88. I mostly have dry cold snow all winter long and scales are very slow on that stuff. I love my new ingstad bc, they have a really good glide and stability in fresh snow. B...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Excursion 88

Nice review ! The 88's have been my go to skis for the past 2 seasons and I really like them. I only wish they would come with waxable base option. I'm also interested in your comparison with the ingstad bc because I got myself a pair at the end of February (205cm). Compared to my 189cm 88, I find t...

Re: NNN Down Hill video!

Thanks guys, its fun doing these videos. And by the way, after 2 seasons my easy skins are holding up really good and don't show any sign of excessive wear after around 200km on them. Salut Boby! Merci pour ta contribution! Toujours génial de lire les propos d'un autre québécois ici. Belle neige dan...

Re: NNN Down Hill video!

Interesting! (Yes, a bit long, too.) Seems like you might need a slalom skiers' face protection for that run. So, I have a question...do you think a slightly wider ski and stiffer 75 mm binding would be better for that trip, allowing easier turns, or not, and -- if so -- why not? Really just curiou...

NNN Down Hill video!

Ok let's start by saying that this was a trilling descent! It was a nice -5C snowy morning with an overnight 5cm of fresh over some more fresh powder... The plan was to start at the top of Mont-Tremblant(White peak 875m) and traverse to the Johannsen peak(940m) true the Dawes Ridge trail, then desce...
