Re: Avalanche

I just noticed this. Thanks for posting this very detailed and disturbing account. Sad for the victim and his family. This is a reminder to me why I ski only low-angled terrain and stay out of run-out-zones and terrain traps. There is just too much variability in the snowpack; especially with the gr...

Re: How to tele: 3-pin only

I ski with plastic boots (old Scarpa T-3) and 3-pins with no cable on my Madshus Annum, Madshus Eon and Agnes Kongsvold. I use nnn bindings on my skinny/touring skis. I ski mostly powder and softer snow and tour/turn on low-angled terrain. I do alpine and telemark turns. Skiing on 3-pins really teac...

Re: Fischer BCX-5 or Alaska BC? Choose wisely

lilcliffy: Thanks! You saved me $249. I was about to buy the Alaska, but after reading your comment that they cannot drive the Annum when conditions are more marginal, I changed my mind. I guess I will stick with my old plastic boots. As always, there are trade-offs; a lighter boot probably means le...

Teleman,

Your injury may slow you down for awhile, but the human body has an amazing ability to heal and recover! You will be doing turns in pow again! Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Re: NNN Down Hill video!

Thanks for posting the video: great pow and amazing landscape. With those tight trees, it made sense to use skins to check your speed. I have been using skins on the downhill for years with skinny skis, telemark skis and alpine touring gear when the conditions or terrain warrant extra caution. i don...

Re: boot rocker?

I am wondering what the effects would be on joints, foot, knees? Would there be increased force or stress? More risk of plantar fasciitis with repetitive motion/compensation?

Re: Women's NNN-BC boots

As an XX with small feet, I have felt frustrated trying to find the right boot for nordic/telemark skiing. Let us know how the boots work out for your wife. Perhaps she could post her review on the forum. I have been considering buying the Alaska (three-pin model) so a review would be really helpful...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

Johnny:

Did you check with Neptune Mountaineering (Boulder, Colorado) to see if they stocked any of the skis you wanted or if they could order hassle-free?
