Re: XCD and NNN BC newbie

I'm skiing the Salomons with a lot of focus - but that focus is distinctly passive: concentration on discovering what the skis 'want' to do (and then influencing that as gently as possible). Being a passionate alpine carver, that element of waiting a split second for the skis to do their thing isn'...

Re: 13 seconds of powder bliss for your pleasure

At one time skis in the mid 90s were my limit, maybe a little more than my limit and I do remember having issues with my knees getting them on edge. As time went on and I got used to them and my skiing got better I no longer had the knee issues. I've had my powder boards about ten years and over tim...

Re: Spring skiing voyaging... which ski to bring?

If it gets steep enough you will save energy with the skins even if it's possible to keep up without them. Are you skiing with a full pack?
