Re: lack of grip undermines the entire performance of an XCD ski

Well Canna, a ski with a dog on it would make me seem less threatening when I ask," Are you going to pick that up?"

Re: The Finest Leathers: Nordic Norm 75mm Backcountry/Telemark Boots

Where are the trails in the knwr? I've been wanting to do an overnighter on the canoe trails and icefish for some rainbows. The seven lakes trail often offers good skiing,and has cabins to rent on engineer and kelly lakes. One could fish for lakers on hidden, kokanees on engineer,and rainbows in ke...

Re: wax vs. scales (THE KICK)

Bob, there can be issues with wax but in this case it's me. All of the time spent on the vector BCs caused me to develop a lazy kick.

I thought that ski would be a good addition to the quiver but I couldn't spend a lot of money on a ski with a dog on it.

Re: wax vs. scales (THE KICK)

I can see that it would be more obvious going from scales to wax. You won't get anywhere until you figure it out. It took me over 5 years going from wax to scales until I realized it, although my feet figured it out before my brain did. I think I spent more energy on my kick with scales than I neede...

Re: lack of grip undermines the entire performance of an XCD ski

LC, are you sure it was the cold snow that the omnitrack didn't like? 40 cm seems like it could be deep enough that the snow wouldn't pack firmly enough under your skis to give enough resistance to push off of. I was going to suggest a little wax of the day on the tips and tails.

Re: Gear Basket

Now might be the time to upgrade my wife's 20+ yr old excursions. Anybody out there that has skied mid 90s excursions and new T4s that would know how much of a benefit they would be. Not me but keep in mind the newer T4s now come with a thermomoldable liner...but not the ones on sale here. If it wa...

wax vs. scales (THE KICK)

I've been skiing waxed skis for almost 45 years. I've had no wax skis for almost as long but rarely used them. I think we can all agree that in general a waxed ski will out perform scales as far as speed and efficiency and smoothness. The last 5 or 6 years most of my skiing has been on scaled Vector...
