Re: is it time?

Got up to ski camp today. There's a foot of fluffy LES without ANY base. Good for K+G but bad for turns. It was down to 9F last night and it sure seems like wither has set in. I am not even remotely ready.

Re: New Boots/Different BSL - Does Binding need remounted?

Not sure which Voile bindings you have, but SB and X2's have heel pads that are mounted with 2 screws that allow you to loosen them and slide the heel pad a bit. Pry up the bung and you'll see what I mean. that being said, I bet you won't notice a difference if you move the heel pad or not.

Re: Voile Objective BC observations and questions

Bedford, the scales in front of your feet will probably give you grip in everything but the hardest snow even though they don't come in contact with the floor. Agreed 100% The scales in front of the toe help immensely when climbing in soft snow (breaking trail). These skis are not traditional XC sk...

Re: The UP Conditions Report Thread

Still stuck in town with "only" 2 feet of fresh snow. There's 3+ feet of fresh in the hills. The local ski hill closed a couple weeks ago so we skinned and skied deep, dry powder until exhaustion.

Does this look like spring?

Re: The UP Conditions Report Thread

just got a fresh foot of snow in town. Up in the hills, it looks more like 28 inches with maybe another foot of LES today. Too bad I broke the leaf spring in my Tacoma. Plus the road up into the hills is most likely not plowed yet so I am stuck in town shoveling!

Re: Spring skiing voyaging... which ski to bring?

Nice trip and really nice setup Woods! Have fun. Yes, bring skins. They will be worth it especially if your ski partner is using them too.

Re: Voile Objective skis - what length?

My advice still stands. If you can turn the Rainiers, you can turn Objectives easily. IMO, you'll really enjoy the upgrade. Rainiers and Chugachs are basically the same ski with the Chugachs being wider by 10 mm or so.

Re: Voile Objective skis - what length?

My $.02: I would do the 178's. You'll like the added length/glide for touring. If you are used to turning the Chugach, you'll have NO PROBLEM turning the Objectives. The Chugachs, while wide (98-69-88), are a very stiff camber and a half, making them a bit of a chore to turn in challenging condition...

Re: Switchback question

If I had to guess, it sounds like you may have your bindings mis-adjusted so one cartridge has more pre-load than the other one. When I have an imbalance in the adjustments between the two cartridges, I notice that the heel throw is not aligned on the center of the ski and one cartridge 'pulls' more...
