Re: Ski Length Dilemma

Adjust your skiing.....get the longer skis....I got some e109's and didn't listen to myself....190's....200 would have been better....And the length isn't just for kick and glide....learning to do Nordic telemark is far different from downhill telemark.....enjoy the trip....had a blast on those e99'...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

205 99's really "rocked".....Just a couple more dents but the two or three slight long turns was really good...Teleking scored two hundred verts and in those were a couple areas that opened into a small area where you could use speed and arc a couple....lots of fun....TM

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Hearing that some little amount of snow is on the way...I......will not be ready but the skis will...Figure they have last years wax on them and it should suffice....Even NO turns if that is probable will feel wonderful...SNOW!!!!! TM

Re: Unapologetic love note to the Fischer E99

Well this thread has made me realize that my really old 215 Europa 99's are going to see some action this year....Know that they will NOT be used by me in tight steep woody sections....However will do some sweeping turns in moderate sections up in the Highlands which COULD see some snow soon....2000...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Week to 10 days early but we are at peak....It just exploded and it's mind boggling....Wicked color and have been taking my camera with me....Up to the Highlands today and will look at the under cover....Unless you live in hardwood forests you can't imagine, totally blows your senses away...TM
