Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Thank you Crister for all your information. What you you say is the closest thing in the Asnes lineup to a waxless Falketind?

Grand Canyon North Rim

Has anyone on here skied out to theNorth Rim of the Grand Canyon? Getting a hankering to do it and would like to hear from anyone who has done it. I know the basics - how far, etc. And I`m getting an idea on timing, seems like in an average snow year I could go as late as mid to late March. But woul...

Re: Alpina vs Scarpa boot size

Cant help on the alaskas; but as far as scarpa to garmont, i have 29.5 excursions that fit me and my friend's T3 in size 30 are just bit big so i think they run about the same.

Re: skis for making miles

I also think that climate is a big part of this too... Indeed, and this is where i wonder just where and how to apply the appropriate pinch of salt to all of this good advice, as High Sierra spring and northeast spring (or winter) must be quite different things but i have no experience in your neck...

Re: skis for making miles

Boy, everybody makes those agammes sound great but i want a waxless ski. All my skiing is spring skiing and waxless works great in the conditions I encounter. I skied across the Sierra and only had my skins out a few times. So maybe some fischers will do the deed. I am tempted to go even skinnier th...

Re: skis for making miles

Ingstad at 84/62/74 might be too close to my current skis (Atomic Rainier, 88/60/78) to be worth it - although that is less sidecut. Just looked up the Gamme - 68/54/61. And the current E99 - 66/54/61. Pretty similar shape on those two. Has anybody skied both and can compare, particularly in firm sn...
