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...

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?

Re: Telemark heroes story

Thanks for posting! As the WWII generation dies and historical amnesia sets in, it becomes even more important to tell and share these narratives of resistance and bravery in WWII.

Re: Sbounds...leathers

You are right! Kind of silly and hypocritical to worry about ski wax when there are worse sources of pollution etc. I think this has been on my mind because I ski in YNP along the Gallatin river and its tributaries. Such a pristine area makes me more concerned about river/ground water pollution.

Last season I used kick wax on my Asnes to climb/tour instead of skins with good results. I still have environmental concerns with ski wax a...

Re: 3 pin or tts?

trashcat: Making your own skis-wow! Very impressed. Lots of wisdom and good tech knowlege on this forum which can help you decide. Good point about all the money/energy being put into development of AT gear. I started my BC on AT gear many years ago but switched to 3-pin and NNN system. I ski on old...
