Alico Nordic March sizing

PS: I just read that you ski groomed terrain... lots of choice...

Re: What alpine skis are people using for telemark?

What kind of binding or which BD binding do you have? 01 (4 hole pattern from 2006), 02 or 03? There is plenty of spares for those, specially 01 & 02

Re: leathers in march

Don't forget to put a lot of snow seal on 'em... You'll see: melting snow + leather = wet socks!
