Re: Snowshoer Gone Skiing Help

I too love heading out my back door into the wilderness. I starting with snow shoeing but then wanted to experience the ease of travel on flats and down hills. So a few years ago I bought a pair of BC125s and Alico Ski March boots. I like this setup but I have since determined that I actually prefer...

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

Sorry for your loss, Gareth. Sounds like you have many treasured memories of her.
The extra snow is one thing I miss about my home growing up just outside the north end of Fredericton, McLeod Hill Road area, just off of Royal Road. Fields, trees, hills, and snow!

Re: WTB: Leather 75mm telemark boots.

I first tried T4s on my RC125s for backcountry XCd. WAY too robot like, at least for me. Probably great for true downhill telemarking, but that's not what I do. I may very well end up selling my T4s. Plus, the Alicos are far less expensive.

Re: WTB: Leather 75mm telemark boots.

Got my Alicos from that same ebay store in the UK. Delivered to Canada without issue. Heavy but work great.

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.

Re: Help Me Choose: Burly Leather Boots vs. Soft Plastic Boots

Because they are so stiff initially I am using mink oil or dubbin until they are broken in more. Then I plan to use the sno-seal.

Re: Help Me Choose: Burly Leather Boots vs. Soft Plastic Boots

I second the Alico boots. I first tried T4s but they were way too stiff for my skiing. I bought the Alicos from GI Joe Army Stores , shipped directly to Canada, without problem. Keep in mind the sizing is UK. I love the Alicos. They are heavy and very stiff, and at least for me, require a slow break...

Re: Steep and deep backcountry Nordic ski

Lilcliffy, I have been out twice with my new Alico March boots on BC125s 165cm with Voile 3-pin cables. I've never connected the cables. I don't yet telemark but these boots work really well with the BC125s for XCd. Not great K&G (although that may be related to my lack of experience) but awesom...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Just picked up my pair at the post office today. Wow, seems like great quality and craftsmanship. Incredibly stiff. Great fit. Just waiting to be broken in. Reminds me of my leather B17 Brooks bike saddle. And just as stylish. Can't wait to attach them to the BC125s. In the meantime I think they're ...
