Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2020-2021!)

>>Are you thinking waxbase or scaled-base Finnmark Canna? One of each would be best! But as I've posted before I like a more aggressive scale pattern than the one Asnes is using so I'd go with wax and use a narrow Xskin if needed. I have Breidablikk - the Husky topsheets - and NATO Combat both in 20...

Re: Favorite ski mountains in each area

northeast - Saddleback is my fave, there's also a "top-tier" of 6 for me, Saddleback, Sugarloaf, Jay, Stowe, and Smuggs are in the elite club of heavy snowfall & big mountain and Whiteface gets in for big mountain. intermountain west - Jackson Hole, A-Basin. Alta & Snowbird. The places I haven't ski...

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

Gotta love the style of the Victorian-era Miner clan....that guy in the top row is rocking some killer mutton chops!!!

>>Would not the Kingsvold be better in powder with it’s wider tip and underfoot? yes, there is a wider one and somewhat narrower one, and now the Finnmark without edges as well. I love these because the skis become featherweight and if it's powder you don't need the edges. I think Finnmark 210's is ...

Re: Seeking wisdom, or at least opinions...

good news that REI is selling Alfa boots! Happy to see that. I think some solid NNNBC boots are a good idea, if you're like most people you'll add more skis to your quiver in the future - you might eventually get those Finnmark skis for something that floats better in deep powder. Maybe a fixed-leng...

FALKETIND 62 BC: 196cm (Wow!)
BREIDABLIKK BC: 210cm (Wow!)

good news - Breidablikk are extremely light skis......210's would be perfect for hunting, or making turns, in deep powder

Re: Alfa Greenland 75 Advance Leather Boots

The Rifugio is the perfect fit between the Ski March & Alaska. It's vastly lighter than Ski March and flexes better while still having very strong ankle support.
