Re: Ski Movies

I have an old scrap book full of ribbons that say "Bill Koch ski league". Cross-country skiing is the best sport in the world. Swear to God. Cross-country skiing = classic style and skate skiing. Best sport in the world means that it gives your brain more feel-good energy per hour and your body a b...

Re: It's XCd. Case closed.

I agree, but c'mon, the original post was a nonsensical, joke of a troll Not trolling. XCd = telemark. XCd must move as far away from alpine skiing as possible as soon as possible so that the Alpine Intelligentsia (AI) have no influence over telemark equipment and style. Alpine telemark is a tweene...

It's XCd. Case closed.

I agree with Cantunamunch that telemark skiing should become an XCd discipline. It should become a niche sport like equestrian riding and jumping that you almost have to be born into.

Re: Tried an Old Trick for the First Time and...

I think a narrower xc ski would have been better as the trail was relatively flat (900ft in 11 miles) and there are a few steeper climbs and decents.
