Re: NNN BC automatic

I was just thinking this the other day as I skied back down a fire road to my car and just used my poles to step out of my autos. I smiled a little at how easy it was. The manual lever of the magnums has given me grief a few times. I’ve yet to deal with ice on the autos but I’m sure if it ever happe...

Re: Losing Popularity?

I was skiing the other day on some low angle terrain in the Sawtooth mountains. I passed a guy skinning his way up the same terrain on a full AT setup. He might as well have been using snowshoes. I saw several other people doing the same thing. Complete overkill given the terrain. I think this reas...

Re: DIY Easy Skins

Very nice looking pack! And yes, I hadn’t thought about the value of a truly custom set of skins. I have some s bound 98’s but have yet to need the ez skins for them. Please post back with your findings, this is fascinating. Nice work!

Re: DIY Easy Skins

That looks nice! What’s the approximate cost of the finished product compared to buying Fischer’s EZ skins? Or is the motivation just more of DIY spirit? Please keep us posted with the final product!

Mounted my own bindings today - looking for an attaboy

Hello all, new to XC this year and just mounted up my rottefella magnums on a set of Madshus Eon Wax. I used to mount alpine bindings in a ski shop 10+ years ago and would never dream of mounting with a paper jig, but after reading that most XC/tele folk take pride in mounting their own bindings, I ...

SOLD: Salomon X-Adv Boots / Eu 44 / Men’s 10

Make me an offer! These x-adv boots have been sitting in the closet for years. I bought them on closeout years ago after Salomon axed their x-adv line but never bought a set of bindings to go with them. Used them as general snowboots a few times. They are warm and quite comfortable. A pretty stiff s...

Re: Recommendations? My first xcD setup: What do you think?

Thanks for suggestions. After getting excited about the Guides, someone else swooped in and bought them before I could. Damn!

Recommendations? My first xcD setup: What do you think?

Hello all, after spending a lifetime on downhill alpine skis, I would like to put together an xcD setup. I've always been intrigued by the telemark turn, but never knew how to get started. After spending this past spring touring on my VERY HEAVY frame-binding AT skis, I discovered this little niche ...
