Re: 2.5 million

2.5 million vertical feet in a year is pretty unbelievable. I would think most of us will never even see 2.5 million linear feet in a season.

Re: Boot-Binding Compatibility

Well like you said the 3pc is a more natural fit with your boots and ski. With that light boot I don't think you will get any benefits from the HW. Other than the weight issue I don't think there will be any negative effects of using the HW with that ski.

Re: Satchel’s Neophyte Nordic Backcountry Adventure Thread

Good for you, that feeling of being outside in the woods on a beautiful day never gets old. As far as technique, I would learn basis cross country techniques that includes a strong snowplow turn before you move on to fancier turns. Videos would be good and maybe a book and you'll be on your way.

Re: Boot-Binding Compatibility

So, after asking around a bit.., it seems that many (but not all) think that the Hardwire binding is a bit of overkill for the S-bound 98.., irrespective of what boot is used.., and that the 3-pin cable is a more appropriate binding for this ski. I haven't mounted anything yet, and am thinking of j...

Re: and now....the rain

Then the temps went up to 40F with a little rain and more wind and now temps are dropping and no new snow in the forecast. Meanwhile back East in Pa. ...

Re: Clinton River Jah Brethren

I remember those guys, they seemed to have a lot of fun and they really enjoyed their alcohol. I don't remember seeing any of them posting on other sites since the origional TTips. It is possible they are posting on Facebook now like most of the old posters on the old Ttips Alaska Thread now do.

Re: The UP Conditions Report Thread

fat skis? what are those? 8-) Probably the next size up from what you currently own, and possibly more than your current boots might handle. Whatever it takes, they will be a good investment because of the fun and stability they add. That being said I think a T4 or excursion should work in soft sno...
