Re: Suggestions for some soft shell pants?

@Leo Tasker

Have you got any experience with Lundhags?
They look the part, very expensive, but are they worth it at all?

None of these are specifically ski pants, so they lack some ...

Re: Is this legit?

Hopefully someone snaps these up, unfortunately not in a position to invest in them right now ... but they're certainly a class act. All white mil ski. Nice!

Re: Dogs + Metal Edges

Completely agree with everyone here, it's all about you and your dog. I'll relate my own experience on why I don't ski with my doggo. My dog did not respond to training of any kind in this regard, he has proven himself to be a bad trail companion for skiing, primarily because he refuses to not herd ...

Re: Filling in the Groove

Cabinet scraper and burnisher — now we’re talking tools! While we’re on the topic of grooves and scrapers, the scrapers I’m seeing are mostly round (like the round grooves on wooden skis of old). Yet the grooves on my Asnes skis are very low profile and flat bottom, making the groove scrapers I’m s...

Filling in the Groove

As I reached for the "pencil groove scraper" (a Pentel Sign pen cap) he asked me if I had ever thought to NOT clear the groove, preaching its value as a way to add "a l...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Still Waiting on the base to come in here in VT.
First two are from the laps we're doing to keep fitness up while the woods fill in.
Last is a little bit of "wish it was deeper" off the side of some (very boney) logging roads.

Got a second wax of the season in yesterday.
Almost TOO slippery.

Re: Skiing with Orthotics

Thanks Leo!

I'm going to look at some softer off the shelf options today or sometime.

Appreciate your detailed response!
