Re: Tele vs parallel.

Tele turns on tele gear can have plenty of power to 'carve' turns. I p-turn on occasion on tele when tired, but really don't like p-turns on tele gear. It's not really very stable and plus, that's what alpine gear is for.

Re: How was your season?

How was MY season? Piss poor by normal standards around here. Little snow, not cold. Started late, ended early. The silver lining was that, although the snow was never very deep, the quality of the snow was great 90% of the time. I usually get 80+ days but this season was more like 50-60.

Re: which ski climbs best

The Koms climb on par with the Vectors. Much better than the Rossis and the Annums IMO.

Re: Altai Kom skis

I'm pretty sure the Vectors have a carbon layer as well. My understanding of the difference between the Vectors and V6s is that the Vectors are straighter and stiffer while the v6 is softer, and, in Voile's words, "more playful" than the Vectors. Whatever that means...

Re: Altai Kom skis

LC, I would seriously consider the HW (or just a regular 3-pin) over the SB bindings for that setup. On a short ski like the 160ish KOM, I find that just a 3-pin minus the hardwire works just fine. I personally think that the SB would be overkill for such a short maneuverable ski. Excursions tour pr...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Fish-e, naw, that map opened to somewhere in southern California! However, I'm pretty familiar with the Ives Lake area. Some of it is in club property (anything north, east or west of Ives lake) and strictly off-limits, and some is public assess CSA land (Ives hill area, south of Ives lake) that is ...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Went out for a fun 'ski' today. It looks like an early season this year. Bummer. Lake Superior, in the background, is about 8 miles away and 1000' below.
