Re: Spring Time

Nice fish! Do those taste any good? And how do you prepare them?

We are still buried in 8ft of snow at 2000ft. Unfortunately, 50 mph winds have ruined our sunny day and possibly all that good snow. With any luck, we get some spring corn soon.

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

well that is a bummer to hear that the Rabb 68 didn't meet your expectations... I do love my ft62 but unfortunately, I'm only good on them when the snow is good. I feel a bit discouraged that after 60 days of skiing this winter that I have so much trouble when the snow just changes slightly and beco...

Re: Same skin for two sets of skis?

I have been switching between NNN BC, NNN all of last week. The snow was fantastic on sunday after the storm which brought almost a foot of powder in 1 day. But since then, it has turned to heavy cement. I am doing the Eklutna Traverse next wk, so I have also been training on my S125s with Silvretta...

Re: Same skin for two sets of skis?

If you are looking for cheap skins get the G3 Alpinist Climbing skins 85mm LONG (it says 183cm but they are shorter than they specify so this one will fit both of your skis ...tail clip is adjustable). This is a decent straight skin that requires no trimming and has good attachments...great for sunn...

I just got back from a wonderful bluebird day of skiing after a huge blizzard yesterday that dumped 9 inches of snow. I skiied on my FT62s and Guar...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

Thanks for sharing! I am picking shorter skis because I'm 142lbs and 5'8". I am going with Asnes because I have many Xskins and compatible tip attachment skins. I also think the Asnes just makes beautiful high quality skis. I don't really want yet another fat ski like the Voile Objectives which I am...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

So another 120" later, it is still snowing. It was complete white out today. just to see where we were going, I had to use glacier mountaineering skills by waving my pole in front (really needed to tie some neon yarn to it). Took almost 2 hours to break 3 miles of trail...wooo! My trusty Asnes FT62s...
