Re: Help A Northeastern Trail Runner & Backpacker Build His First Nordic Backcountry Set-Up!

Satch- Hopefully, we are helping you! "Nordic" skiing covers a spectrum that is very wide and very deep- from high-performance XC on the groomed track- to big-mountain " T elemark", which has evolved to be to akin to "Alpine Touring" (AT), in that it is primarily design...

Re: New OAC XCD GT UC

Bahhhhhhh. Don't tempt me! Making me want to get the recently-discussed Fisher 78s, these, and then use my step Dad's classic XC skis (he's got a quiver of 5 or 6) for groomed track days at the XC center. Now that would give you a full spectrum for BC Nordic touring! Put the same binding on all of ...

Re: Extreme cold weather ski Waxing, which wax?

Cool man! Sorry about my confusion around your OP. The dual purpose ski/mountaineering boot is a serious advantage- if you are going to do some serious mountain climbing! Even if you could get a telemark binding to work- I doubt your mountaineering boots have enough metatarsal flex for a Nordic bind...

Re: Extreme cold weather ski Waxing, which wax?

So in my limited skiing knowledge, maybe I'm confused or something but I've noticed a lot of New Alpine touring skis have p-tex bases, is this a reverting back to waxing or am I missing something, if this is too off topic someone let me know. Forgive me if I end talking about details that you alrea...

Re: New OAC XCD GT UC

I have X-Trace binding- I bought it with my Hoks. I like the utilitarian convenience of the universal binding- but for some reason I find they hurt my feet for any extended skiing....Not sure why... They do work very well. I would be mounting a NNNBC binding on this ski. In the past, I would have be...

Re: Extreme cold weather ski Waxing, which wax?

lilcliffy, Do you do any sort of hot-wax, any favorite brands, toko, swix, hertel, etc My "preference " for Swix is solely a matter of convenience- it is what my local shop carries. The only other brand I have truly used (meaning over at least a season) is Toko- and that was 20 years ago....
