Re: (Asnes) fishscale ideas

Well I know peeps on this site tend to like there skis on the long side, maybe they would climb better if they were sized down and still have acceptable glide. It sounds like more of a problem than just in specific situations. I find it hard to believe Asnes doesn't have this right. There is some t...

Re: WAX HELP, PLS!!

The short answer is that in Pa. I got by mostly with swix Extra blue, a regular green for cold days and a red silver for warm days up to almost 40 F. Add a tin of Polar for glide and you are set for most conditions. As far as skins I don't use them in Pa. but I would use them on the longer climbs in...

Re: (Asnes) fishscale ideas

You said the trails are too narrow to sidestep but when I'm in the situation you describe I find that I will sidestep with my skis at a 15 or 20 degrees from the direction of travel. Just enough to lessen the angle and enable you to get more of the weighted part of the ski on the snow. Your ideas we...

Re: When do skis go on sale?

I would be prepared to pay full price and hope you get what you want, otherwise look at something used to save money and ride it out another year.

Re: Voile SB vs. Voile X2

I prefer the regular SB for the skiing you describe. I would put the X2 on a ski that I mostly skin with and use at the resort.

The free pivot is more efficient for K&G if you don't mind the feel.

Re: The Beer Thread

In 45 years of skiing I never drank alcohol while skiing, even at the resort. This changed last winter skiing in Pa. We found that we really enjoyed catching a good buzz while out on our local trails. I wondered why we never drank while skiing in Ak. and figured it would be something we do when we r...

I also enjoy some of this. It’s cheaper than beer, good beer anyway.
