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...

Re: Altai Skis Hok Review

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...

Re: NNN-BC toe bumper stiffness

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.

Picture from the Blue Mountains from last Monday. Unfortunately, there has been alternating rain and snow since.

Re: What is camber?

Gareth, I weigh about 185, would my weight be over compressing my Andes USGI 200's in the striding sense. I enjoy the ski, and am generally capable of making decent telemark turns depending upon the snow conditions. I am just trying to better understand your dissertation. It seems as though I may n...

Re: Snow or none?

The Blue Mountains (NE Oregon/SE Washington) had 11 inches over the weekend. First skiing today--the earliest ever for me. Interstate 84 was closed between Pendleton (OR) and I think Ontario (OR).
Even had a 1/2 inch of snow in Walla Walla (1000 ft. elevation).
