You're right Al, 'tis the season to enjoy the snow in its liquid form here in Québec:

See you around!

Re: Downhill performance : Ingstad vs Rossi BC 110 vs Raab 68

Martin, Man that is some severe case of gottagetmoretelemarkilingus you got there! I tried my best to slow it down, but it seems like nothing can be done at the moment. Of course, the Rabb 68 is a better Downhill ski. You have eliminated the Rossi BC 110 so I guess $$ is no longer an issue. Scales k...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

Hi Guys! I used to snowboard too. But I got bored. These days, when I want some resort time, I will pull out a telemark ski kit or one of my waxless XCD/backcountry skis and leathers. A world of fun! Besides, IMO, complimenting our daily XCD/nordic backountry diet with an occasional meal of modern r...

Re: Hé Ben, Bri7, Johnny... the Alfa holy grail, just for you, 30$

Aggressive turns?!? Aggressivity and stiffness are for madmen and thugs. Poles apart from the very essence of telemark. Everybody knows XCD is all about softness, technique, grace and finesse... Not aggressivity and stiffness... 8-) It's no surprise that some people are destroying their boots or ne...

Re: Hé Ben, Bri7, Johnny... the Alfa holy grail, just for you, 30$

Thanks for the lead there GnarlyRod! But I already own a pair of those rockingly-agressive Alfa Vulcs. You might be surprised to learn that the soles on those is stiffer than my newer Alfa Advance 75mm (very similar to the Alaska 75mm in fact). They are a great classic vintage boot. Its amazing how ...

Re: New rant... Backcountry/wide skis and telemarkers

Fish, all the power to you for making your son happy on the slopes. May there be many father & son ski days ahead of you. Besides, if the fat twins he likes slow him down, that means you will be able to follow him on the blacks for many more years to come!

Re: Åsnes and La Cordé

Martin, thanks for letting us know. I hope this does not sound like bragging, but I seriously believe Ttalk is the main reason why Yéti (bought over by LaCordée) started carrying Asnes skis in the first place. I never went as far as asking them but as we first started talking of Asnes skis, Alfa boo...

Re: Voile Objective BC Skis and Super Lite Skins

and if you're 15 miles from your car you should have a repair kit that takes care of this issue regardless. Hi there woods, I'm curious to know what you have in your repair kit to solve a ripped out binding issue? I for one am not at all sure what I would do if that were to happen! I've got a screw...

Re: Teleman: get well soon!

Hi Folks. Some times, thoughts matter most. As you have surely all heard, Teleman is back online and well. I've done my best to get in touch with him and his entourage about that gift some of us helped pull together as a get well present. Turns our TM thanked us for the gesture. However, as I have n...
