Re: Åsnes Gamme

You're a brave soul to run 210 Gamme's on hiking trails with turns! I need lots of room to arc the E99's and Gamme. If you love this type of ski another alternative is to have a 210 pair and a 200 pair. The 200's will still be light & have camber but will be vastly easier to turn in tight spaces. So...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Gamme 54 BC

The Gamme 54 does have plenty of camber and I've found it works well with the kicker skins - we get a lot of ice around here, I cut a 45mm Asnes nylon skin down to just short of the boot heel and it works great on ice. Like klister without all the pine needles. With mohair the glide would be even be...

Re: Åsnes Finnmark 54bc waxless

nice review, thanks!! Finnmark is going to be my next Asnes purchase, I love the idea of a wider XC ski with the light weight of Finnmark w/ no edges. I've been happy with my older Breidablikks for that reason. in the 90's Kharu used to make several different waxless, edgeless skis with more width t...

Re: Next pair of skis to complement E99 Crown?

as usual it will take more than one pair of skis to fix this dilemma! If you only have E99 crown then there is a huge need for a waxing ski in that profile - Gamme 54. However for deep pow turns NATO is needed. NATO has a big camber drop-off from Gamme but it's still decent at kick-n-glide. You'll p...

Re: Got a hernia at work... anyone have any experience skiing with one?

IMO put the skis away until surgery and recovery....lock them up if necessary! :lol: Many doctors are egotistical idiots, especially surgeons, and will not tell you to stop doing sports. Hernia will get worse (larger) with more exertion. The larger it is, the bigger the piece of mesh they'll have to...

Re: right or wrong way to handle climbing skins

I never glue them together, I cut a little sheet of this stuff to put in between, works great, makes them much easier to separate:

West Coast storm

this is great - never heard of "SIS" before but it's a problem I'd like to have! :lol: >> This storm is a reminder about the power of Mother Nature and safe riding habits in deep snow.
