Re: 2017 WoodenSki dot com inventory is up

Coooooool...! Nice NNN quiver! We don't see several pairs of skis without any pins very often... 8-) A flambé Grand Marnier fruit cake would be perfect... Using the torch to light up both cake slices and the ski base... Sounds like a nice ritual to me... Tar pine flambés perhaps? :D Oh, I just score...

Re: riser plates in the backcountry?

An active binding will get the rear ski to turn even if not properly weighted through tip pressure. True... That's what I meant by training wheels... And exactly what Harris meant by " they help save gas on groomers and or powder "... Simply put, cables do the job for you... 8-) Human pow...

Re: 2017 WoodenSki dot com inventory is up

Hey nice woodies by the way! I also got my hands on a pair of Asnes Turs this summer... Oh I had to pay the price too... The guy didn't want to let them go for free... I tried to negociate but his price was firm... Two bucks... ;) (But he also included a pair of vintage Fischer RC4 racing boards tha...

Re: 2017 WoodenSki dot com inventory is up

Woods, try to mix the tar pine ritual with something else... I found out that the delicate smell of boiling tar mixes really well with Cognac and Bourbon... Grand Marnier too... Chocolate cake perhaps? Try to make the whole thing a romantic ritual... 8-)

Re: riser plates in the backcountry?

The only advantage with riser plates is when edging skinny skis (sub-70 waist) in icy conditions (and that can be a life-threating thing in delicate situations when the binding hits the ice and the next thing is that you are going down the icy sloope at 50mph on your gore-tex ass...). But otherwise...

Re: Hagan Off Limits Ski Review

Apparently, Asnes already worked on their version of such a ski. They worked in collaboration with Sporten from Czech Republic. (Sporten already have two models of skishoes available for sale...) Together they built a prototype of a small, fat ski with half-skins a few years ago. Not sure if they we...

Hagan Off Limits Ski Review

Hagan Off Limits Review.jpg NO, they are not toys. They are neither snoeshoes nor ski blades. And no, they are not Hoks either. They are a lot more than this. Ski Shoes?!? It all started as « Skishoes ». A terrible name for something without a very definite crowd. There were several different incar...

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

Waitin', thank you for that wonderful report...!!! It looks like you already have that magical Perfect-Binding-Mounting-Position-Visualization ability in your blood... It's very tempting to mount the Nordic Rockstar further back, because of it's construction and that Gnarly Whacka... But if Asnes sa...
