Re: Asnes Mountain Tour 51

30mm is a good width for my ft62. the 40mm pomoca skins are great for steep dry powder ascents. the 40mm and 45mm are definitely too grippy and not useful for gliding flat and moderate descents. I use them sometimes for hard pack and steep terrain going up and down...sacrifice speed for safety. I wo...

Re: Asnes Mountain Tour 51

yes, you are right. Varuste is in Finland. they keep very low quantities in stock. they also have backcountry ice skate boots that are nnn bc compatible that I have been eyeing since last yr. I might pick up a pair later this winter for ice skating on some lakes with my wife. I will probably also ad...

Re: Asnes Mountain Tour 51

Varuste ships to the US with no problem. I got my skis today! These are the waxable MT51s. They look really great and they are so light. I ordered last wk so it only took a few days. I live in Alaska so if you live in the lower 48 near a big city, it should arrive fairly soon. They have a few differ...

Re: Asnes Mountain Tour 51

My mt51 are being delivered tomorrow. can't wait. Mine are waxable 185cm from the swedish site Varuste. I paid $300 US which included shipping. I plan to mount the NNN BC magnum bindings and will be hopefully skiing in 2 wks. In warmer weather, I will use my alfa quest core boots and in colder weath...

Re: NNN vs NNN-BC on 50ish waisted XC touring skis

Thanks for the fast reply! can't wait to get them mounted. there should be new snow coverage down at lower elevation in 2-3 wks. I was just worried about the specs of the magnum. The description says that they are for 52mm skis and wider...but I guess that doesn't matter that the mt51 is 51mm...I re...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

You guys may do better in the lower 48 mainly due to high altitude and dry conditions. The snow here gets water saturated pretty fast. The snow on that glacier was firm and crusty. You can barely put your fingers into it. I would not have been able to even ski with the FT62s. The S112s did ok but I ...

Re: Ski Length Dilemma

But, how could I NOT choose the Falketinde62: The FT62 is classified as a backcountry ski according to Asnes . ... It is very, very light. The lightest DH ski you can get. Its light weight and narrow profile make it a tiny bit easier to control than the Rabb. With leathers, almost no muscle power i...
