Re: Snow or none?

So far, so good in Colorado! nice vintage skis! what binding/boots are you using? Totally jealous over your early-season snow :mrgreen: They look like Riva bindings. My favorite for any ski that I will be using leather boots with. They are nice skis, never saw them before. Yes, they are old Rivas. ...

Re: Why not the telemark?

I've learned two new terms today!
Brachiating (anrothar) and Falling Leaf (fisheater).

About 7 miles of XCD in the Snowy Range mountains. Includes a bonfire, beer and music. This will be my third year in a row. I reco...
