Re: The Åsnes Thread

And Johnny, you owe me for a some Glitts, bindings and kids skis - see if you can't find something decent for Bob to slide around on the trails. I know you have or can find something. Nada?

Re: US Marines Purchase Anses NATO Combat Skis

US Army uses Vectors and Switchbacks.

Yes... surplus - so we can recover our taxes for pennies on the dollar.

Not really that funny - mostly just seemed to piss people off.

Re: Please help a neophyte Vermont XC skier select the right gear

Groomed trail does not always mean set tracks, and if if there are set tracks, you can usually ski beside them. Lars - you should probably clarify if that is a priority. If that is the case, the Fischer OTX 68 is the next size smaller that will squeeze in a groomed track. Edit: I'm mistaken, no EZ s...

Re: Please help a neophyte Vermont XC skier select the right gear

Welcome Lars, I wouldn't worry too much about your weight. Just get a ski you feel comfortable with. I've been pretty fatted up after the holidays and when I was drinking a lot of beer, and I still skied the same stuff ;) with no issues. Either of those skis will work. Get what you like based on the...

Re: interesting old 3-pin Telemark instructional video

But I do expect you not provoke them. That means calling him out on his BiaS. Sorry, that is not debating an idea. That is debating the person. And given your history, it's best to either make nice, or ignore. I will continue to debate you ad Hominem whenever you do so to him. Got it? Thanks. That'...

Re: interesting old 3-pin Telemark instructional video

Whatever you say. I'm perfectly happy leaving you to your devices if you leave gramps out of it. Everyone in the whole world knows you don't agree with him, no need to rub it in his face everytime. It's just your personal grudge. Listen, I've made peace with him and Ron. I don't expect you to. But I...

Re: interesting old 3-pin Telemark instructional video

OK Mike. I hope this isn't the impetus for MikeK's personal Melt-Down 2.0, but IMO, this forum is just fine without your presence. The only strife here is due to your recent interactions. I can argue with whomever I want on a forum, provided the owner/mod allow it. It's not up to you to set the ten...
