Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Another beautiful day on the Eastern Snowfields off the Mount Washington summit! Spring is creeping up the valley! Amazing corn!

Re: The Rockpile last week- pics

Good for you for still getting out there. Your stance is good as far as fore and aft, and it seems to be working for you. The only suggestion I have is to open it up a little. I think you will like the feel and realize the benefits of skiing with your skis about hip width apart, and at your skill l...

Re: The Rockpile last week- pics

Where were you skiing? Your stance looks great to me and your excursion seemed to vary between the entertaining and the 'character building'. Thanks for the pictures Mount Washington in northern New Hampshire. Highest point in the US northeast at 6,288'/1916m. It's part of the Presidential Mountain...

Fortunately, my buddy brought beer for both of us. Makes the schwak go better, as always!

Re: sidewall vs. cap; polyurethane vs. ABS

Either one works for me. I love my Voile Skis. I love my Atomic Vantage 85s with their mostly sidewall-transfer-to-cap-in-tip-and-tail. I used to think there was a difference in the 1990's, and maybe there was, but now I have a tough time discerning the performance advantages of either- they seem eq...

Re: The Åsnes Thread

The Objective clearly outclasses your S-Bound 98 as a downhill ski- like comparing apples to oranges...But- I wonder whether you wouldn't end up using a ski like the Storetind (or the Asnes 76) on exactly the same terrain as the Objective- on the moisture-rich snow of the Northeast? For a few years...

Re: The Åsnes Thread

I am also curious about the two Tind skis. I am too- what is the difference in performance between the 68/76/86? Obviously the 86 would offer more float than the 68- but if you want a powder ski, why wouldn't you go even wider? PLUS- I am sure all of these skis have different camber/rocker profiles...

Re: The Rockpile last week- pics

We had an adventure getting down via some bushwacking attempting to find some more sweet turns. We found no sweet turns, and had to downclimb this chimney. We threw our bags down, mine got stuck. There's a 15'+ gap on lookers-left that sucks under the cliff. The snow is completely rotten, non-suppor...

The Rockpile last week- pics

Did some skiing last week up on Washington and Tuckerman Ravine. The Ravine was characterized by late-season runnels, which are basically sluff/slush/corn paths that repeat over themselves and get very deep-- waterslide deep. One could easily fit inside and a viewer looking over the top wouldn't not...
