Re: Excursion 88 to Ingstad

Rossignol's BC line up are great for Steep stuf and meadow skipping. I have a BC-90 and a Newish BC-110. I feel the 110 is as heavy as my Leather boot (andrew's North Rim) can handle. The Asnes seem to be more $$

Re: Kick Skins over Kick Wax

Good to know. I have brand new Kicker skins. Usually by the time I'm slipping bad enough then most wax is worn off or smoothed out anyway.

Re: Accidentally bought Fischer e99 waxing version. First time to wax. Should I keep them?

No need for a scrapper. Just use your other skis edge to scrape off. Unless things are going badly I hardly ever scrap of wax. Instead add another layer of appropriate wax. If it's above 27 degrees don't even bother with wax. I hate using Red!

Re: "Stupid" Waxing Question

Love climbing wax but after about 25 degrees or so fish scales really excel. I’m ok with giving up a little speed for getting me up to the goods. Been years since I’ve had skins but thinking I’ll get some soon. Definitely enjoy a traversing up trail vs going straight up.

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Is there anyone left out there ripping tele turns on skinny double chamber skis. If not your missing out big time. Take off the training wheels folks and try some old school Nordic telemark!! For the record my E-99's are 185's This is a huge difference from the 205's or 210's that I grew up skiing.

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Drinking, smoking, and playing golf hasn't kept my conditioning up. Can't wait to start waxing up our favorite zones. A few short months and skis will be sliding again!!

Re: "Stupid" Waxing Question

Wow, looks like those would climb well. Looked like brand new leather boots too. I prefer climbing wax over scales any day, but they have there place.

Re: "Stupid" Waxing Question

I've had similar thoughts about when the fish scales get too worn down and weather there is a way to smooth it back out to a wax-able ski. Or better yet a way to re scale your ski once smooth.
