NNNBC boot replacement

Starting to think about replacing my current Alpina Alaska BC boots. Currently considering two options: 1) another pair of Alaskas. 2) Alfa Quest Advance. Very pleased and satisfied with the Alaska- no real need to replace them! Very interested in trying the Alfas- VERY expensive!!! https://alfaoutd...

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

WELL- the snow has finally come!!!! 30cm Saturday night- more on the way tomorrow and end of the week. Got my first ski of the season in at midnight Dec. 9- VERY late for my neck of the woods! Spent all yesterday afternoon playing on backyard slopes with my 3-year old on our Hoks. Out again this mor...

Re: Asnes USGI review

Wicked man- thank you for sharing your perspective!

These skis are excellent deep snow XC skis- they are VERY stable when XC skiing in deep snow.

Glad to hear you got the wax just right! Grip wax is MAGIC!

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

Cliffy, yes Nnnbc with Alpina Alaskas. I am sorry to report that my beloved boots have loose bars and cracking around the different rubbers in the bar area after 3 years. Otherwise solid. My merrels are still solid after 10 years of hard use and resoling. An NNNBC resole option is needed in this wo...

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

I chose 205s... I do carry a pack often and was counting on mr. Ingstad having a soft round flex- which he does- and the length gives me more speed and better tracking on the harder trails I routinely travel to get further out. Oh- 6'1", 185 lbs I am. Also was counting on the skis being turny....

Re: Fischer Excursion 88 Easy Skin (S bound series)

Thank you for your perspective on these skis.

Seems that you were a little underwhelmed by them- compared to your Alpinas?

I have the Easy-Skin on both the E99/E109- the glide is pretty good- but both of these skis are more cambered than the E-88.

Which wider skis are you considering?

Re: Altai Kom skis

As to which binding to choose, I received the skis with the Altai 3-pin cable (like the Voile), which seem to be versatile and a good value. However, for my skiing, I didn’t like just the three pins for such a substantial ski and I found the spring cable, even at minimal tension, limited heel-lift ...

Re: Altai Kom skis

We got a good 30cm of fluffy soft stuff!

Not enough to shred around here though- been sticking to fields and trails until we get some more snow.

More snow coming tomorrow and the end of the week!

(Still haven't mounted the Koms)

Re: Onion River Sports closing...

I have the OAC Kar147. I have not tried any other OAC skis yet, but one of my friends have the XCD 160 (not the new XCD GT), I need to go skiing with him sometime and test those. I have a feeling that one of those XCD models could have been a better choice for me, but you never know what do you wan...

Re: riser plates in the backcountry?

I am not sure what to expect yet. The Kom is the widest Nordic ski I have ever owned. It is even wider than the BC skis I toured with in the western mountains back in the 1990s! I "expect" that I will often not need or want the cables- hence the interest in the 3-pin cable/hardwire... BUT-...
