Re: Mounting inserts for both tele and AT bindings on the same ski?

Bear in mind that this is not something I have personal experience with, and it's not in my area of experience.

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

The only thing that could ruin that is if your foot does not fill the boot's volume. Then that sweet supportive leather would become the pinch point of death. I've got short, wide, but relatively low volume feet. I guess you'd say my foot depth is low? So in hiking boots I'd buy supple leather boot...

Re: Elan Ripstick 86

Thanks for the feedback buddy, that's great to know! And I really appreciate the note on the lengths! I could see the Elans were much shorter than the K2s sitting next to them on the rack but I didn't have a tape with me. The comparison to the Vantages gives great perspective. I'll go see Ed this we...

Elan Ripstick 86

I'm having a blast trying to learn telemark at my local ski hill! I come from snowboarding on the lift serve, so I picked up a ratty pair of early 2000's Rossignol Carves equipped with a solid set of Hardwires on the cheap. The skis were perfect for getting an initial feel and helped solidify my dec...

Re: ALFA Quest Dynamic / Kikut Perform GTX NNN-BC Ski Boot Review

Well, it was a bummer that the Perform sole delaminated in the first place. Then I contacted the retailer with pictures and description - still no response at all. I didn't expect much, but I must admit I was disappointed with not even receiving a "that's a shame, but unfortunately we can't do ...

Re: Buying Asnes skis...

Thought I might as well add to last year's thread instead of starting a new one! I stopped by Norseman this afternoon while I was in Calgary. I gotta say, the owner Anthony was a heck of a guy. He knew up front that I wasn't buying anything tonight, just wanted to see and flex more Asnes skis in per...
