Re: An introduction, and also looking for newbie XCD advice

Great decision on those vintage E99's/3-pins, that is perfect for your situation IMO. In addition to variable snow the Catskills also have a lot of rocks! Might as well get something cheap that can turn into dedicated rock skis later. You can see how you like the basic 3-pin binding setup and boots....

Re: Buying Asnes skis...

REI is stocking 4 Asnes models - it looks like they went whole-hog into the fishscale models but at least New England has its first supplier of Asnes. Very exciting news, Asnes makes great products, I'm happy to see them expanding. Looks like we have more evangelizing to do to spread the word on the...

Re: Asnes quiver of two

are we still taking votes? Second the motion for Gamme/E99 or MT51 for even better XC performance. Would go with Nato Combat for the 2nd pair.
