Skiing at the resort will make you a better resort skier...
Skiing in the BC will make you a better tree skier...

Re: Alpina Alaska 75 = Old Alpina Explorer 75?

Well... Do not buy that shit.

Ok, the boot isn't that bad... They feel like a slipper to me (I do have a pair, I'm not talking BS). But they are fragile and NOT supportive. I use them for cross country skiing... The inner lining is falling appart...

You can get sheets by the meter. You will need metal grip too. https://snowboardmaterials.com/index.php/materials/base-material Another thing; do not be too confident about a release system... Some time, the release could end up in an injury too. Everything is a matter of compromise. If the release ...

Interesting job... Next time use something like West System Gflex for the epoxy... less brittle, more supple... and it won't show that much... And filing is alright; if you use an electric tool, you might go too far. For the ptex, I think you can get sheets (small?); it would work better. Because I ...

Re: Rossignol BC 100 Positrack

I look at them twice at the shop... The new BC collection is a little better than it was (very easy... they were crappy in my views regarding design).

Re: Tele Technician in Mont Tremblant?

It might cost you a bit more if they do not have the template... But they can do without if they are good. Ask for a Boot center on center mark (ski mfg mark).
