Re: Do we really need all that sidecut for powder skiing?

I'm with you LC. I've never been a big fan of lots of sidecut, especially for touring skis. Sidecut is great for downhilling on groomed snow, but beyond that, if you can ski with control and balance, lots of sidecut is not needed and in fact can become a hindrance.

Re: What is camber?

If you are continuously breaking skis, it means you aren't doing it right. Maybe find a better tool for the job.

We had a historically shitty winter last year. Little snow and warm temps. It's been the trend for the last couple of years. That is extremely rare where I'm at on the south shore of lake Superior. We are due for a real winter this year... In SE Michigan we get some lame winters, even when I was a ...

Re: Greetings! I'm all about the midwest hardwoods...

It's great to see fellow midwesterners enjoying the snow. There's a few of us on this board. I'm in the UP and although we have a little bit more wilderness, snowpack, and vertical, we do the same basic thing your crew does: touring for turns in the hardwoods! I saw on your website that you ski thos...

Re: Snow or none?

Ah yes, the oak leaves prediction. I'd be interested to see what that method predicts for us this year! Well, if you have another lousy year down there, you might consider getting up this way, even though we "don't have anything to ski" ;)

I'm at 180lbs and ski the 180 Vectors. I feel that they are the appropriate size for my mass. I don't think I would want them any longer...

Re: New Alpina Alaska NNN BC HEATED BOOTS!

I live and ski in a VERY cold part of the US. I use the regular Alaskas and they are almost too warm in every condition that I've used them in. Add a heater to that equation, and the result for me is sweaty-soaked feet. If it's THAT cold or the skier has that poor circulation, there probably won't b...
