Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

This season has been incredible for me as I explored several XCD ski trails in CO and a few in WY, did a ski hut trip, and towards the end of the season, took a tele lesson. Thats me in Loveland last weekend, on excursions, targas, and piste stinxs. 29665597_10156241320396948_4553742724389266063_o.j...

Re: XCD and NNN BC newbie

I look at (non-Alpine) skiing in much the same way as biking. X-country is close to road biking. You get in a rhythm and fly. Distance and pace are the governing issues. It is chiefly a cardio exercise but, unlike biking, gives you lots of upper body exercise too. Always working to beat that 10 km/...

For Sale: Atomic Rainiers, NNN-BC manual bindings SOLD

The Atomic Rainiers are (88-60-78), and 192 cm in length. They served me well for my first ever ski season. But have now upgraded to shorter skis. They are drilled for 3-pins. My wife changed from NNN-BC manual to 3-pins, so selling these as well. Both the skis and the bindings are in great conditio...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Hrishi, before gambling on the fit of mail-order boots maybe consider checking out used equipment at consignment stores before you leave Colorado. More tele gear here than elsewhere. Boulder and Denver must have some treasures, but I never get around to checking there. I've found some great equipme...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Any idea if these are unisex? (my wife is switching from NNN-BC to 3-pins)

Sierra snow qualities? XCD Trail recommendations?

As much as I would have loved to continue skiing in Colorado, I made career decision to move to California (southern CA, at that). I have lived there before and hiked a lot in the Sierras, but never ventured out on snow. They were also the drought years. For those familiar with skiing in the Rockies...

Re: Skiing down narrow, steep, switchbacky hiking trails

Update- got a new pair of 165 cm Madhshus Epochs that were on sale for my wife. She hasn't skiied on them yet but the flex is incredibly softer than the S-88s. Will mount 3-pin cables on them. This way the skis could be used with leather boots (which are next on the list) for gentler terrain and wit...
