Re: Fischer Excursion 88 vs Outtabounds - Newb

Thanks guys, appreciate the words of wisdom. My first outings on XCD gear were on new powder and gave me a bit of a false impression of the overall difficulty I think.

Fischer Excursion 88 vs Outtabounds - Newb

I'm new to Nordic BC skiing, and frankly still have a lot to learn at the resorts as well.
