Re: updated Fischer site

I was historically heavy and would previously have needed longest length. 189 cm was not bad for me, and probably would still be the correct size, since I am down to about 185-190 lbs. I am only 5'7" and have short legs as well, the longer skis are difficult.

It's the desert here--no precipitation here since June 5. Maybe some tonight at 5000'.

BTW, my profile picture was taken on the Moulton trails overlooking Butte.

Re: Scales vs. Kicker-Skins

Scales don't work on ice, which I assume is what you were skiing on, given the temperatgures. Kicker skins might be easier than ice klister, which is probably the wax you would use.

10 inches at Bluewood (4500 ft). Thursday night. 16 inches Saturday night.
