Re: Nordic backcountry setup for above treeline

ultimately having a bunch of different gear is the best, you need multiple options. If I was going to kick steps up some 45-degree climbs there's nothing better than hard plastic boots, same with skiing down this terrain. Would not bring the duckbill leather boots that day! But skiing up and down th...

Re: Nordic backcountry setup for above treeline

Sounds like any of your options would be good - what type of conditions and trail are you usually on? Are you staying on established trails that are mostly consolidated snow, or are you traveling more on deep powder? since you're in Boulder you can check out Neptune Mountaineering. They sell Asnes s...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Is that NNNBC at a ski area? They probably don't see that very often! Looks like a great place with tons of snow.

Re: Fischer S Bound 98 and Madshus Epoch

IMO any adult man should not have E99/Glitt type skis below 200cm, totally disagree with Barnett there. 200cm is a short length for these. You need 205 or 210 to glide and float well. Sounds like the 180's are totally overwhelmed by your weight. I find E99's to turn fairly easily due to their soft t...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

good job Woods, 4000 vertical, where did you come down? I hid inside the house yesterday with the windows closed to keep the hot air out! Today's avy report was a little more optimistic on the snowpack: >>>Our snowpack is really deep right now despite the recent warm weather. Copious amounts of snow...

Re: Alpina Alaska 75 boots

150 days out of a boot is not bad at all, if that's what you get it's not a bad deal. The thinner glued-on NNNBC or 75mm do give you a slight weight savings over the Antarctic. Re-soling the 75mm is great but you need a cobbler you can trust, if they don't have the skills for it the fit will change....

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

What about Haystack? Doesn't it have more ski lines? I thought one side of Marcy had a bowl on it? Guess not.

Re: 2015 Åsnes Combat NATO

The story didn't end there! Good news, Neptune was bought in Februrary and will continue under local ownership: http://www.denverpost.com/2017/02/15/neptune-mountaineering-boulder-local-ownership/ Edit: Eric Schmidt, the new manager, just let me know that the Asnes lineup will be fully stocked at Ne...

Re: 2015 Åsnes Combat NATO

I just discovered why Neptune Mountaineering didn't stock Asnes this year - the parent company is going bankrupt. No money to order inventory, not good. It sounds like the store was sold to a corporation that then ran it into the ground. Dan, the guy in the videos, Sourdough trail, etc., has already...
