It was probably the same people who would infer that a cable binding is a less pure form of XCD than a three pin binding.

Re: What ski/binding combo for Scarpa Fabiano?

As far as bindings go you can't go wrong with a Riva cable binding. I've used them with leather boots and 4 buckle plastic boots and on every type of terrain from mild tours to the steep and deep. They don't makethem anymore so if you see a pair used grab em. There was a pair for sale on teleturn ar...

Re: Dealing with FRACKIN icy refrozen snow in the backcountry!

It's good to know that the integrated skin system works well on the icy refrozen snow, but when my local trails freeze over they are so rutted up by bikers and hikers that they aren't worth skiing anyway.

Re: Nordic backcountry setup for above treeline

Everything is relative rongon, I remember my first time out with leather tele boots and I thought they were too stiff for touring. That was in the days before nnn-bc so there were no other options available so I stuck with them. Now they are the lightest boots I ski. I've retired my 4 buckle chrispi...

Re: Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

Whatever ski you decide on get the shortest length recommended for your weight for downhill performance. That's the mistake you made with the Vectors. The 180cm Vector is for 140lbs or above... I'm 160 naked... You went for the longest ski recomended for your weight. I weigh about 175 and I got the...

Re: New Alpina Alaska NNN BC HEATED BOOTS!

They would be the ticket for some ski in ice fishing. Other than that I need ways to keep my feet from overheating, like rolling my pant legs up and my socks down. They do look like pretty beefy boots with what appears to be a higher cuff than T4s. Even if they are very soft I think they will still ...

Re: Did Marker make good ski pants?

Keep them at least until you try them. I'm sure they're at least water repellent and that pretty much is all you need. Weather they are breathable or not you'll still be ventilating by unzipping.
