Re: Ski Movies

So this was totally me at Jay Peak last week when they had amazing snow, before the big melt. https://youtu.be/YBtN4gRtXOU What the hell is wrong with everybody? On a related note, Marcus Caston is has an interesting style where he drops his hip as he rolls into turns. It's almost like an exaggerate...

Re: BC90/Excursion 88 binding suggestions.

I use Alico Ski March leathers with BC125 and Voile 3-pin cable bindings, although never attached the cables. I love this setup for XCd through rough tight backcountry. I'm kind of thinking of something like this with a Rossi BC110 for you, if you want something in between. The jump between the 70 ...

Re: Alpine Touring/Telemark skis- grip wax versus scales?

Do you use your waxable Vectors on groomed snow? I used waxable Vectors on groomed trails and when the conditions were nice (ie NOT BULLETPROOF) they held an edge nice and were fun-enough-did-the-job, quick for their width, skis. A little high-freq vibration on harder stuff, nothing too terrible. D...

Re: Voile 3 Pin Cable Climbing Wire Compatibility

So I just mounted up some Voile 3 Pin Cable bindings to my new Madshus Annums. I was rooting around in my box of ski junk and I found that I had two sets of heel climbing wires. One set from Black Diamond O3's and one set from G3 Targas. I tried to put both of them onto the heel plate of the 3 Pin ...

Re: Help A Northeastern Trail Runner & Backpacker Build His First Nordic Backcountry Set-Up!

Nice! I am remounting my 78's now back to NNNBC as we speak This makes sense! Would be interested in what you think of your waxless E99s versus the 78. I can barely use my waxless E99s- too little grip... I really like my waxless crown E99's-- 205cm. They have more rocker than I would like for this...

Re: the magic and power of grip wax

This is where I disagree with you in general- it sure isn't easier if you are miserably slipping all over the place. In my neck of the woods, Nordic skiing is also becoming thought of as something that can only be done by people that are very fit- that it is too physically demanding otherwise (this...

Re: and now....the rain

Well, I just skied up the local hill then did my two lift-assisted rides for my three run minimum. I'm soaked. Everything's soaked. No one there. One of the biggest weekends of the winter for the ski are coming up and it's going to pour rain and then go to 2 degrees. I feel for the economic impact h...
