One caveat-- they only show bending the tips, but the whole ski will need to be steamed to get the camber

Re: Time for some ski making

I like the ones in Woodersons link that are 97mm wide. I think they would fun skiing around the woods. The carving step in the videos looks easier than carving a canoe paddle of which I have done many and the steam bending doesn't look complicated either. I sure it wouldn't be too difficult a projec...

Re: North Country Scenic Trail

P1020003.JPG Although this was early September in the Brooks Range I had my winter set up. It's a Kifaru 4 man tipi with a stainless woodstove. Total weight is less than 15 lbs. with the tent stuffing down to a little bigger than a loaf of bread and the stove folds down to about the size of a three...

Re: Us gold medal

I wish I'd have seen it live, I bet it was awesome. What an ending for a 5 time American olympic xc skier.

Re: North Country Scenic Trail

Good for you dude, nothing like a little adventure to recharge the battery. Did you carry that pack or was it on the sled when you were moving?

Re: Hot waxing scales... pro tips!

Mine has a cloth insulated power cord. I'm thinking it's from before the sixties.

Re: KICK Waxing Scales! It works!

The trouble you can get into is if temps drop you will have a hard time removing the wax from the scales in the field and you may have zero glide. By all means do it if it's the only option but next time try kick waxing the tips and tails first to see if that works before getting wax on the scales.

Re: Touring speed comparison of skinny dbl camber vs. fat fishscaled ski

I did the same 1.5 mile tour today with my T4s and freshly waxed dbl. camber xcd-gt. Conditions were harder and faster than last week and I shaved 6 minutes off my time compared to the vectors.
