Re: Ski Movies

Sorry for the late response, I didn't have computer access for a few weeks. I didn't see anything wrong with your skiing but it looked like you were unweighting and crossing the fall line at the same time. It's not wrong and it is probably the quickest way to get across the fall line, but not the o...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

good job Woods, 4000 vertical, where did you come down? I hid inside the house yesterday with the windows closed to keep the hot air out! Today's avy report was a little more optimistic on the snowpack: >>>Our snowpack is really deep right now despite the recent warm weather. Copious amounts of sno...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Altai KOM's on top of the ROCKPILE! Big Melt today! Very little skiable snow above treeline that wasn't the usual established/historical snowfields, ravines, etc. Tricky snow, some brilliant amazing corn, and some very slow freshly warmed snow, and giant snowmelt rivers undermining everything and en...

I like it... used it on long snowmobile trails. However I think this is quite a personal opinion. It's not an E99 or wood Madshus Touring wax, but it does a nice job.

Re: Altai Kom skis

Woods- What do you think about the E-88 in Bob's context? I think it has some merit. I do not have the KOMs for any sort of flat-land travel. I think it's miserable with plastic boots and the short length and all those scales. I like leather boots and then if I have short downhill ski sections I ca...

Re: Ski Movies

It is actually the exact opposite! You need to kneel through the turn, not kneel and then turn... you need to take your time. Look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiXQTS_8Ph0 Ok ok, I get it. We're on the same page, just getting to the correct sentence. Great video! I will study and hopefu...

Re: Ski Movies

It sounds like you are having fun! If you are asking for some comments, I would say that most of your kneeling happen before the fall line. If you take your time, say active till the end of the turn, you will be more stable, specially if the terrain gets bumpy... You go down on your knees, take you...
