Re: Sbounds...leathers

Been cold but the skiing is heating up...Lots of powder out there and with blue sky, sun, snow and ice blasted trees a beautiful vision is waiting.....Boys felled a "perfect beech standing dead tree"...hauled those suckers on their shoulders back to camp....Me? I kept the fire going....We have a goo...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Got lucky a few days back...18-24 inches in the Highlands.....Our base (all the snow we had)...was 6-8....bout the same as you out there.....then a South and east storm lit up the highlands....Not supposed to but often times it does....One time getting out of the car the Town plough roared to a stop...

Re: Asnes Cecilie Wax or Waxless?

Hard to keep up with Teleking, he moves!.....But he got a skinny set of waxless skis and that made all the difference...My 109's really go fast on the cruise and do they take off on the down...To turn these speed is of the essence and that's what I get from wax....Flats...up....down...Will use bones...

Even though TELEKID had most of the beautiful openings I was able to get some of the fringes left by him...AND....showed HIM some beautiful ARCS....only chance of better looking arcs is...
