Re: Skin Minimalism

Anemic, are you familiar with the Madshus Intelligrip skins? If not, they might be of interest to you:

Re: Hi from Alaska and some questions

The Voile bindings on your Epochs definitely work with the Alico Ski March boots, as I have the same combination :)

Re: Hi from Alaska and some questions

Hi AKjohn! Just a word about using the same boots for both of your skis: At least the Alico Ski March boots have a properly thick duckbill, that probably doesn't work with the bindings on your Lampinen's. At least my old basic Rottefella 75mm cross country wire bail bindings (not the Super Telemark,...

Re: Scott Excursions at the resort

Why do you consider Excursion? Most people would for its «lightweigtness» in the BC. I don't know about Woodchuck's reasons, but for me the Excursion is a great boot for backountry skiing as it is soft enough to allow some XC skiing as well. In my neck of the woods, backcountry downhill skiing mean...

Re: Scott Excursions at the resort

Hi Woodchuck, I'm in a similar situation as you are. Beginner trying to learn fluid telemark turns in the resort to better apply the tehcnique in the backcountry. I'm also using the Scott Excursion boots, with old Atomic Beta TM 24 skis (102-64-88 or something like that dimensions) and Rottefella Ch...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

I have an initial question- that Merrell XCD GT- which era of the Karhu XCD GT is it? Domensions? Camber? Just based on your description of its unwillingness to respond to you pressuring it- it sure sounds like a double-cambered ski... I don't know the era, pretty early I suppose. The dimensions ar...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

Åsnes Ingstad, Fischer Excursion 88 or S Bound 98, Madshus Eon or Epoch, or OAC XCD160 or XCD GT. My vote, in order, best to worst: 1. Madshus Eon Wax 2. Fischer E88 3. Fischer S98 4. Madshus Epoch 5. Åsnes Ingstad (non-rocker version) Can't speak for the OAC as I have no experience with them. Coul...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

Fischer Transalp 75 with voile 3 pin cables and Scarpa T4s I think will manage anything from piste and groomers to cross-ountry, but you will need 4 skins for them, intelligrips, fischer rocker UL65 race skins (think wider and grippier intelligrips), full width mohair and full width nylon skins...b...

What is the ultimate compromise ski?

Today I skied both of my XCD skis back to back, and was pretty underwhelmed by both of them, but in totally different scenarios. That got me thinking if there would be some ski that was the perfect middle ground between these two. First about the conditions: we got maybe 15 cm of snow last Tuesday. ...

Re: Help Me Choose: Burly Leather Boots vs. Soft Plastic Boots

I hvae one size too big Ski Marches, and I am happy with that. They are quite narrow (I have UK 10M size, I guess the M means medium width last) and fit me very well even if the toe box is slightly too long.
