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.

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...

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

Thanks Johnny, it feels like the most important decision in my life right now . . . Nitram/Martin, yes, I'll have to move quickly! Not sure where you are in Quebec. Any recommendations around the Mt. Tremblant National Park area? I am going to the Park itself for a couple of days over Christmas. But...

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

Johnny, really looking forward to hearing how these work in practice. I'm still debating between the Ousland and the Gamme for my quiver of two - the other skis is an FT62 for xcD. So comparison between Gamme/Ousland would be helpful to me! Seems like my choice might be made for me, since La Cordee ...
