Re: Nordic backcountry setup for above treeline

As far as the Explorer 88's (which I think are a slightly older ski with similiar profile, we don't get sufficient snow until early December, since I have lived here.

I already have skis with 60 mm waist (but 68 tips), which sink pretty well in powder.

This post is mostly for competent xc skiers that have a week to spend at an event and money tp get there and for the cost of the event itself. I went last year, it is a lot of fun if you are in the right spiritregardless of whether the skiing is challenging/ A short summary of the event is that sigh...

Re: Nordic backcountry setup for above treeline

Hi folks, its me again, and hope you had a great summer. So I got a great deal on an used Fischer S-bound 88 in NNN-BC, and ended up getting it for gentler hills (decided to postpone on wider XCDs until my wife and I become proficient in the XC) and winter camping. The ski is 169 cm in length. Now,...

Re: Altai Skis Hok Review

I skipped by this thread previously, just getting around to reading it. There are places (untracked trails) and times (after a snowstorm) where I have the chance to ski in powder. My skiing is mostly horizontal. The Hok looks like a good possibility for this type of skiing. I can also rent Fischerf ...

Re: Help A Northeastern Trail Runner & Backpacker Build His First Nordic Backcountry Set-Up!

I agree with most of what lilcliffy said. I am strictly an XC skier, primarily not on groomed tracks, since there is none available nearby. I don't typically make turns, I am still on trails. I ski on Alpina Discovery 68's (metal edged, 68-60-65). I originally bought these to get more stability on f...

View from top of Anthony Lakes chairlift (7900 ft.) , facing south (groomed Alpine ski trails, which I was skiing are north of this location, XC trails to northwest).
