Once there is a reply to your post, you can't delete the post. But you can edit the title to add "SOLD".

Tom, I couldn't get your video to play -- it says "Video unavailable -- This video is private."

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Some of the skis look familiar. There are a pair of Kazama Approach skis and some Black Diamond skis (the longer blue ones) that have similar graphics to some Black Diamond Boundary skis that I have from the mid-90s. I think the two pair of identical model skis at the left of the frame in the video ...

Re: Saw this on Facebook - Voile TTS binding coming...

Will that heel lever work with current NTN boots? Does the Crispi Shiver have a clear enough heel channel for that heel lever to hold? If it doesn't work with the heel channel, you can use the "crampon ledge" just above. That's what I do with TTS with my older version of Scarpa F1 AT boots with bel...

Re: Same skin for two sets of skis?

Yes, you can use the same skin for both skis, as long as you don't try to go up a steeper slope (maybe >20 degrees or so) with the fatter skis with skins fitted for the narrower skis. If the skin leaves more than the edges exposed in the middle third or so of the ski, then you will slip on steeper s...

Re: Happy World Telemark Day 2020

Please introduce our fellow forum member. I think he yells his name near the end of the video: Baaahb!!! I didn't know today was "World Telemark Day" until yesterday. I was skiing at the area, and another telemarker told me about it -- turns out it's the 6th annual WTD. https://www.telemarkskier.co...

Re: Skins and wax help!

I can rub in Glopstopper by hand on skins with no problem, although I usually do two to three passes to fill in spots -- it does take firm hand pressure. Although I know of some folks that rub it in both with and against the grain, I usually rub it only with the grain of the skin. Many use an iron w...

Re: Hot waxing with polar?

On a related note: I hardly ever hot-wax anymore, even for downhill-oriented skis, unless I am going on an extended trip, where I won't have a chance to do occasional touch-ups. I use the tool linked to below that allows you to work in the wax better than a cork and w/o an iron. https://www.tognar.c...
