Re: Skis Stuck In Sweden - how to get them to the USA?

I got a quote from Fedex and it was ridiculous $700. I showed the quote to my friend and she said she would bring the skis with her in the fall. :-)

Skis Stuck In Sweden - how to get them to the USA?

Hello there. I seem to be in slight predicament ;-) I bought a pair of 200cm skis a few months ago and had them shipped to a friend who lives in Sweden. The idea was (because the seller would not ship to the USA) for her to ship the skis to me from the Swedish post office. But apparently she ran int...

Re: skis for making miles

If you had identical ski models made one with metal edges and one without and IF you were skiing a terrain where metal edges were not necessary - i.e. tundra or lakes ... would non metal edged skis be faster? I think Yes but I wonder about the opinion of others here.

Skiing northern portion of Sweden's Kungsleden trail

There was an interest after one of my posts in a trip report about our 2017 trip to ski the Kungsleden trail. Thank You as this rekindled memories of a fabulous trip: We flew to Stockholm from Boston with our skis and a duffel bag of ski boots, backpacks and winter trekking clothing. There is a spec...

One day from Abiskojaure to Tjaktja was particularly windy...we were the only ones to decide to go out and made it and feet we...

Re: First post, intro and a question about shortening Asnes kick skins

I think running hot iron over skins will recondition them. Just put wax paper over the sticky area before ironing. I have also in the past bought a tube of Pomoca skin glue and tried to put some on my old skins. That was in the past before I found out about ironing skins and the result was kind of b...
