Re: Lets talk about your pole..s

Also have Asnes Ingstad, very well made. Bomber. Have BD Alpine Carbon Corks, find they don't extend long enough for me for cross-country, only go to 130, maybe 135. Not even long enough for downhill for me at 6'1". Also have Fisher BCX adjustable poles, like those a fair bit. Probably the ultimate ...

Re: Pole Length

Asnes website says your height in cm's minus 35-40cm. This puts it right at the armpit for me, which is just right for backcountry xc. If I am doing track skiing with long kick and glide, I like them a little longer, more to ball of shoulder.

Re: Seeking Guidance On A New Setup

Agree, have the same Ingstad pole. Great grip and strap design. I am 6'1", got 145cm. Seems just right.

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

Seems to be the series of little ribs underneath the side wings that were catching. I'm thinking the Manual might not have those little ribs?

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

I am looking at getting the Borge Ousland for "Nordic" skiing, half in groomed tracks, half for easy Backcountry. I would have thought to get NNNBC Magnums, but I think the extra width of that binding can dig and grab at the sides of the tracks. Anybody used the regular NNNBC? I would think it would...

Polar skiing

For those of you interested in polar skiing: Mike Horn and Borge Ousland just crossed the North Pole and Mike Horn's videos are amazing.

Re: GPS Apps and touring speed

I have done a lot high route off-trail backpacking in the Sierras and Rockies and for these uses I highly recommend GaiaGPS or CalTopo. I think they would work very well for Backcountry skiing as well Both are amazing mapping software. You can get contours, elevations and layers from a variety of ma...
