Finally got out for my first time

So last year I joined and had picked up a set of Madshus epoch's with voile 3 pin cable bindings. Later in the season I picked up a pair of Fischer sbound 98's with the same bindings and finally found a pair of boots to use, Rossi bcx11's. Well today I finally got out and put them to use. Snow has f...

Re: The Finest Nordic Norm (NN) 75mm Backcountry Boots

My faves are my merrel ultras, followed by my asolo snowfields. Got 2 pairs of excursions that I just can't say I love. That being said, I am an old fart that tours backcountry trails,rather than a telemarker.Btw, will soon be posting for sale (once again), a brand new in the box pair of ultras siz...

Re: Hi again

Hi again

So last winter I posted a couple times. I wound up picking up a pair of Madshus Epoch with voile 3 pin cable binding and then found a pair of rossi boots. I never did get a chance to get out on them. So what does a guy with two pairs of skis do when he hasn't had a chance to ski yet do? Buy more ski...

Re: Hi from Alaska and some questions

That boot is a backcountry XC boot- not a Telemark boot. It may fit exactly what you are looking to do. Only one way to find out though! Excellent price! That boot is more than enough for the Epoch- unless you are on very steep terrain- but, the Epoch is not designed for such terrain in the first p...

Re: Hi from Alaska and some questions

Nope, I haven't had a chance to ski them yet. Picked them up yesterday wind is still howling. Supposed to die down sometime tomorrow. I figure as soon as the wind dies down I will see about getting out. I grabbed them purely as a get me out there boot. I plan on meeting up with Chisana and checking ...

Re: Hi from Alaska and some questions

Well I have a pair of boots, I stopped by a thrift store and they had a newish looking pair of boots that actually fit me. They are the Rossi BC X11's. For $25 they might not be the end all boot for me but they will get me on the skis. Now all I have to do is wait for this wind to die down. 30-50 mp...

Leather boots and liners

So I saw something interesting the other day. My wife just started working for her friend who does wilderness emergency education, first aid etc. She (the owner of the company) at another stage of her life had guided trips to Denali's summit. My wife and the owner were going over things and that lef...
