Re: BC90/Excursion 88 binding suggestions.

I'm leaning towards the bc90, but I am struggling with the binding and boot combo. Beautiful off-track touring ski. I am considering using the nnn bc magnum binding to use with my Fischer bcx boot or alpina Alaska toebar. I would rate the Fischer BCX5 in the same class as the Alpina Alaska NNNBC. T...

Re: Altai Skis Hok Review

Just checked Canadian site:

Hoks are currently out of stock.

Re: NNNBC boot for wide feet

Measure the distance from the outside corner of your heel, up and over your instep, and back to the opposite corner of your heel. If this measurement is longer than the length of your foot (i.e. Mondopoint measurement), than you may well find a better fit using your instep measurement, than your foo...

Re: Alpine Touring/Telemark skis- grip wax versus scales?

I guess I have always considered these skis too wide for skiing on-piste locally. My local hill is steep- only 260m vertical- and the conditions are typically hard and icy. Even the 84mm of the longest Objective is wider than I would typically want on my local hill...

Re: Altai Skis Hok Review

So- I pulled the NNNBC binding off my Hoks last night, and re-mounted the X-Trace universal binding. It is not that I didn't like NNNBC on this ski. I eventually decided that I wanted the versatility of the universal binding- especially when I take the Hok to work. Also- although I like my XC boot o...

Re: Altai Skis Hok Review

I have previous gen 145cm Hok- the steel edges are the same, they extend to the base of the raised tip.

This makes sense! Would be interested in what you think of your waxless E99s versus the 78.

I can barely use my waxless E99s- too little grip...

Re: Alpine Touring/Telemark skis- grip wax versus scales?

LC since you have other no-wax skis like your guides and Altais to get you through warm ups or spring skiing it sounds like the vectors would be a luxury rather than a neccessity. If this is the case then you should consider the waxable version. It seems like your quiver of "fat" skis is ...

Re: Arctic Sweden-Norway (last April)

Thank you for sharing this. And yes- please- more in the future! My wife and I fell in love trekking together- our current family situation prevents it at the moment- but we hope to continue doing trips like this in the future.

Gorgeous snow! Did you have the Eon wax or the Omnitrack?
