Re: A petite gal’s journey to 75mm (3-pin) boots (size 5, high arch)

HeathieC, not sure just what ski you're looking for, but Cascade Ski Touring Center in Lake Placid just got in a bunch of Fischer's, and some of Voile's women's skis are actually on sale! Should be a good length for you to be found in those.(PS - I can confidently recommend dealing with the folks at...

Re: Morrow liners in Excursions? Anyone tried 'em?

Sounds like they'd be excellent for me; can one buy them from the manufacturer, or are they an ebay sort of thing?

Re: How's the ROM in the Scott Excursion

What size are you looking for? I come across some on occasion; don't remember where I last saw them (it was recently), but I would certainly keep an eye open for them. Craigslist is still a good option; I look for listings in places around the country that are active ski locales. Lots of gear in Col...

Re: Morrow liners in Excursions? Anyone tried 'em?

Rodbelan, do you mean the fit is a little more snug with the Morrow's? If so, that would work well for me. Bgreg, the question is, basically, how the fit with the Morrow's compares with the git with the original liners. I know the Intuition's are a higher quality, and offer more options, but the pri...

Morrow liners in Excursions? Anyone tried 'em?

I've been enjoying my Excursions for a few years now, and plan on staying with them for a long time. Mine have the non-moldable liners, which are warm and comfy... and really heavy. I actually prefer the liner to a moldable in some ways, as they don't pack out nearly as quickly, and the boot is alre...

Re: How's the ROM in the Scott Excursion

I agree with Bgreg; while I've skied (and ski) T2's and T1's for a couple decades, when I tried the T4's, the flex was awkward for me, and the cuff was definitely uncomfortable with any forward lean. So, I went with Excursions for my general BC stuff... and also found them fine at the resort on some...

FS: Alico leathers, fits US 9.5, great cond.

I don't remember the model name; these are the classic 75mm lace ups, 6 eyelet height, no buckle. Very well cared for, welt stitching sealed with seam grip, and uppers kept nourished with non-petrol based conditioners. Cuff and gusset are leather. These are nicely broken in, but not broken down. Pin...

Re: A petite gal’s journey to 75mm (3-pin) boots (size 5, high arch)

I commend you determination too! You learned a lot, quick! No doubt you'll track down (pun not intentional, but hey, it works!) the right ski too. I'm partial to the Voile line myself; if you liked the Annum's, you'd probably find the Objective's delightful. Endless skiing options if you're in a VT ...

Re: Vector BC Binding Finding

Excursions with a stout 3 pin are ideal for what you want. You could even go with a a good pair of full leather boots, if they appeal to you. I've been this set up for 2 or 3 years, and they've been excellent. Personally, I don't see a need for more than the 3 pins if you're wearing the Excursions, ...
