Anyone know what happened to NordX?

I was idling away my life one morning and I came across an entertaining ski-racing format in which competitors raced a course similar to ski X , but including a steep uphill section, on cross-country skis. Quite exciting, as you might imagine, and some impressive demonstrations of the downhill capac...

Re: The Rockpile last week- pics

Where were you skiing? Your stance looks great to me and your excursion seemed to vary between the entertaining and the 'character building'. Thanks for the pictures

Re: Traverse 78

Thanks for all the replies and the good, well reasoned, advice. I think I'll go for the Traverse 78s if the deal is still good. They sound as if they'll be at least as good as the Morrottos on both K&G and turning and the kicker skins plus waxless should be versatile for UK conditions- snow's all go...

Re: Traverse 78

Thanks Wooderson, useful to hear from somebody who has both the E99s and the Traverses and interesting to learn about skiing in the woods of NE America. You must have some bottle, if you are doing linked turns on single-track through the trees! I spent a couple of winters shuffling around on skis in...

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Fascinating thread, even if I can't understand half of it. I had no idea that there was a Scottish skimo series, but sorry Mark, I've no intention of joining in, even though it would put your ratings up. Could a race profile or format be devised that would favour XCD/ telemark over AT? Or would this...

Traverse 78

Hello tipsters! IMG_1625.JPG I'd like some advice please. I've used a pair of Morrotto telemark lights for more years now than I care to remember and thought I might like an update. Do you think that the Fischer Traverse 78 would make a suitable replacement? I know you can't really answer that unles...

Re: 75mm boot recomendations

I skied for years on a pair of Montelliana, (low ankle leather) which served me well for hacking around the English Peak District, Scotland and Norway. When they started to show signs of age, I hastily bought a pair of Alico March army surplus from an on-line store. The price was incredibly low- £30...
