Re: Point a newbie in the right direction for telemark skiing

About those skis and bindings shown: Skis are Karhu Jak's, which lots of folks really like, and I'll leave it to someone who's skied that particular model (there's been several incarnations of the Jak's) to offer more input. Bindings are 7TM releasables. I've skied the "power tour" model f...

Re: Grumble, grumble, danged postal holidays...

We'll get more snow, and more cold. One week does not the rest of winter make.

Re: Who's filed a tail notch into their skis?

Some good suggestions guys, thank you. I'm leaning toward the tail clip on those G3 Alpinist Light's; I think Voile sells some that are almost identical, if the G3's aren't sold separately.

Double bladed axe? No way... got machete written all over it.

Sawzall? Wood blade or metal?

Re: Removing kick wax

I scrape them down to as clean as possible (made easier if you let the skis set outside and get good and cold, particularly for warm waxes). I use a sharp, clean scraper for this; usually a metal one - seems to clean better than a plastic, but requires a little more care in use. If there's still res...

Work's: These are the grey and white topsheet generation of the classic Work's,124-88-11. Wood core, titanal metal sandwich. Versatile, smooth, solid, forgiving all mountain ski. Topsheets show wear and tear from the previous owner; I epoxied over a dinged spot on the tail (topsheet) just to keep it...

Who's filed a tail notch into their skis?

I'm tempted to file the tails to better fix the tail clips on my skins. The Objective's tails don't have any metal, so it would be easy enough. I know I'd need to seal the exposed laminates; I'm thinking a good slow set epoxy or some JB weld might do it, touching up if needed. It'd be good to hear w...

Re: What happened to Steve Barnett??

He was stillactive as of a few years ago, and used to post occassionally on another site. I'll bet he's still skiing regularly, just tired of going public.

Re: Waxless skis, wet snow, F4 and...skins?

I never worry about skins over kick wax, and on the waxless I hot waxed tips and tails with Swix CH8 (a warm snow glide wax), and don't worry about that either. I only use the F4 on scales, as mentioned, and only when the snow's wet/sticky, and it is effective for that. I never would use it on cold ...
