Re: Singletrack and Snowmobile Trail Skills

Sometimes on steep bumpy ice, walking down carrying your skis is the right technique. :)

Re: Singletrack and Snowmobile Trail Skills

I've used the "Between skis" technique quite a lot on narrow single tracks. Varying the pressure applied the the snow and angle of your snowplow to adjust to the slope conditions. Like any skill, it's good to practice it on gentle slopes before you need it. I've even used it to descend groomed blue'...

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

I'm not you and you're not me. For me, I never wax as I live in wet maritime changing snow. Icey in the shade, mushy in the sun. Positive waxless sing in hard snow, glide is slower but kick better. Negative patterns are quieter, glide better and grip less. All of my skis have positive patterns and s...

Re: Tele newbie... I was given these, have no idea what they are.

I had an earlier version of that ski and never learned to tele like Tim Caldwell. When the skis were 25 years old I used them to make a garden gate in the back yard.I still use short leashes like the ones on your skis to avoid any hassle inbounds. I've never had a tele 3 pin release.

Small world indeed. We're 4 miles down from Rattle Snake Lake. We can wave to passers by from the breakfast table.

The trail in the back yard heads into the mountains and passes right by the chairlift. 26 miles away.

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Sweet!! I miss the feel of a waxed ski. We have gotten so much snow in the past 2 days that the Interstate 90 to the ski lifts has been closed 10 times. 20 mils and 3500' higher. So for the 2nd time in 5 years I can head out the back door.
