Re: Us gold medal

I watched the race. Holy hell it was exciting! Those climbs looked very painful and those athletes are amazing.

Re: North Country Scenic Trail

Super-cool t$! Ski-camping solo at it's best. That's one skinny tree you tied off to! One of my favorite ski spots up here is less than 1/4 mile from the NCT. It's pretty unfinished around where I live but some sections are complete and fun to hike/ski. Sucks that your snow is so poor this year. Som...

Re: Hot waxing scales... pro tips!

LOL Woody. Sounds like you had a rough day! Well-used skis, in my experience, tend to accumulate this type of sticky snow more easily due to the scrapes, gouges/hairs on the base that act as points for snow to weld onto and grow into a big sloppy problem. As far as hotwaxing the scales is concerned,...

Re: The UP Conditions Report Thread

Had a warmup last week and some freezing drizzle followed by maybe 2 inches of snow. All on top of maybe 3 feet of firm, dry powder and base which has not received any fresh snow for 3 weeks. Unbelievably, the conditions were great. Climbing with scales was poor due to the super-thin crust from the ...

Re: Ski Review: Altai Kom 162cm

Another interesting, well thought out review LC, thanks! I agree the Koms are not an XC ski. I suspect you would enjoy touring on the Koms better with SB's or some other free pivot binding. IMO, it makes these types of skis much easier to tour and climb with. Yes, you have to figure out how to press...

Re: Touring speed comparison of skinny dbl camber vs. fat fishscaled ski

Same experience here LAA. Touring with steeper ups and downs, and the VectorBCs/lite plastic boots are somewhat faster. (and a HELL of a lot more fun!) On more rolling tours with mellow ups and downs, skinny double-cambers, wax, and light boots/nnnbc is way faster than Vectors/Excursions EXCEPT when...

Re: "wing" mod for nnn

Try this out T$. Screw an eyelet into your skis behind the heelplate. Now tie some some para cord to it. Then tie the other end of the paracord around your ankle so you can only lift your heel 2 or three inches. Next, before consuming any cocktails go out and make some turns. Let us know what happe...
