Re: Mikaela Shiffrin

I feel the same way, I'm cringing half the time watching them, it feels somewhat exploitive. If you lose your edges you're almost guaranteed to rack into the fence and get injured, the entire slope is an ice rink, why can't they have hay bales on the edges? One of the guys in the GS took a fairly mi...

Re: Waxless Scale Patterns- What's your favourite Flavor?

"weekenders urgency" haha I get what you mean. I've had some bad experiences with the Fischer Offtrack bases on fresh dry snow as well, it can be unbelievably slow in those conditions IMO. Where it excels is warm spring corn. this is why many of us turn to Asnes, to get the XCD-type skis w...

Re: Mikaela Shiffrin

no kidding, I couldn't believe they didn't bother showing the end of the race before announcing the winner....idiots! I thought Shiffrin did well in slalom, .4 off the winner, definitely not a choke, it's not like she skied off the course or anything. regarding Vonn she's also had some brutal injuri...

Re: Mikaela Shiffrin

World Cup titles mean 10 times more than Olympic medals, it means you consistently bring it all winter long. As Bode Miller said in the Olympics everyone is going crazy, risking it all to get into one of the top 3 spots. I think the top 15 finishers in World Cup races get points. Ted Ligety dominate...

Re: Touring speed comparison of skinny dbl camber vs. fat fishscaled ski

sounds like a great tour to me. Leather boot advantage isn't necessarily weight, the flexibility of them can be more comfortable for touring. My aching foot bones need any help they can get. There have been different version of the Ultra, the ones I had were light, like beefy XC boots almost. The st...

Re: Olympic Snowboarding

Where in the heck are all the ski fans? The mens dh is the marquee Olympic event and I think we had more ski fans at the kids Alpine regionals Monday in Michigan. They were probably at women figure skating. Where else can you get to see a double flying camel toe :D ? oh dear. :lol: :lol: I noticed ...

Re: Mikaela Shiffrin

I have to say it does seem like she has overprotective, controlling parents, I don't like their demeanor. Is she allowed to hit the clubs and have boyfriends in Europe and stuff like that? I hope so :D :D Besides being the absolute terminator in the slalom events she also seems more humble than Vonn...

Re: Skin Minimalism

your quiver is very similar to mine, especially the profusion of 3-pin bindings on everything. I like the the tip to heel half-width skin. It would be fun to pick up a "race roll" of mohair and some tip attachments & experiment.

Re: Telemark Down (don't do it)

that's too bad, Eric has treated me well a couple times including sending Crispi boots back & forth for me to try on and giving me an excellent price. It does seem odd the boots wouldn't be marked 28.0. I think they're correct in that the shell is the same in 28 and 28.5, that's the way Excursio...
