Re: The friggin' Triple Rs

I was checking Snow Country site for Oregon resort snow conditions. Pretty miserable. The worst early winter in Oregon that I remember was winter of 1977-78. There was no measurable snow in the southern volcano chain until mid-January. The one benefit was access to the high lakes for iceskating on c...

Re: Rottefella new MOVE System for 2017-2018

Rottefella strives to build a better rat trap, but seems like more things to go wrong with the "SUPER EXCITING MOVE ELECTRIC System".

GLB,
If you ski "knee to ski" in your leathers, try skiing a taller stance with your plastic boots.

Re: New Moderator

.... I am also in the PNW, but the only thing we have in common with the Cascades is we get most of the same storms. They dump less, but much drier snow, in the Blue Mountains and Elkhorns, where I ski. Looking to get back to the Elkhorns one of these days. Used to ski Anthony Lakes in younger year...

Re: New Moderator

Just thought I would weigh in my 2cents: Me? 60 years of skiing. From early self-propelled days in Mike's neighborhood to the PNW and the magic of the ropetow and beyond. Blew my knees out skiing GS style evading the ski patrol. Now on SB's w/ 3pins and swap between leathers and T3's. If my knees wo...

Mike's words don't reflect Telemark Talk's spirit of friendly good-fellowship at all... Sorry about ...

Re: Thoughts on S-bound setup?

Thanks! How do you like the 98's in powder. I am wondering if the conditions yesterday were just too deep and not steep enough for these. I was getting into some snow about 18 inches deep and sinking. Or maybe I am just so used to skiing 110's underfoot. When in deep powder, you need some steep ter...
