Re: The friggin' Triple Rs

Similar in Eastern Washington. We actually had snow in Walla Walla yesterday, but the inversion is supposed to end. The Blues had about 4 inches yesterday. I didn't ski this week but plan to be out skiing Thursday or Friday I don't know if Bluewood or Anthony Lakes will be open by next weekend.

Re: Grip waxing fishscale bases?

Waxless bases will grip on anything but ice. In snow that sticks, use a liquid wax like Swix F-4 on the waxless pattern to prevent sticking. What will help on ice is ice klister. I have not used it, we don't get those conditions around here, I only saw them on one of my trips to New Hampshire. It wo...

Re: Fischer Excursion 88 Easy Skin (S bound series)

Thank you for your perspective on these skis. Seems that you were a little underwhelmed by them- compared to your Alpinas? I have the Easy-Skin on both the E99/E109- the glide is pretty good- but both of these skis are more cambered than the E-88. Which wider skis are you considering? Most likely t...

Fischer Excursion 88 Easy Skin (S bound series)

I rented a pair of these yesterday to ski on fresh snow and hopefully make trailbreaking easier than with my Alpina Discovery 68's. I don't do much downhill that involves turns, so this review involves the use of these skis for more typical ungroomed xc skiing. I used the Easy-skins for the first mi...

Altai Skis is having its annual ski festival (Hoks and Koms) at Sitzmark on January 20th this season. Sitzmark is a small ski hill nestled in the Okanogan Highlands of NE WA. We kind of takeover that day. Lots of demos, pointers, tours. Don Portman comes over and helps out along with our local crew...

You should ask them about the leash attachment plate as well.

Re: NNN-BC on-piste?

see previous topic "NNN-BC Leash Plates" not yet-but I attached some leashes to some old BD PolarStar skis mounted with NNN-BC bindings, using marine fittings I suggested in the topic above. I want to try these on the bunny hill at least--about my skill level at turning on XC skis., probab...

Re: Hagan Off Trace Skis

This has the same dimensions as the Alpina Discovery (68) as well. The skin base might be an advantage to some, it wouldn't matter to me.
