Re: Scary adjectives for winter storms- opinion?

Nice tracks and great pow! Always better when you have the trail to yourself. I know some people in Colorado that drool when they see the snow that hammered the East.

Re: interesting old 3-pin Telemark instructional video

Great video and thoughtful comments! As a light-weight small XX person I will never be able to ski like Harris or probably most of the guys on this forum. Experience has taught me that I must do the following if I want to execute a telemark turn and not end up doing a face or butt plant: tight stanc...

Being XX, I appreciate that Asnes is designing some skis for women.

I would purchase only one pair of skis because I get overwhelmed with choice when I have many skis in my closet. I would opt for the Asnes Cecilie BC.

iBjorn:

Think you are right on about the risers. Not needed except in limited circumstances.

Re: And they say Telemark skiing is dead and rotting.

Harris: I know you are a hard core downhill tele skier so I get that it can be hard on your knees even if you mix up turns. I really think that a free heel is so much better for the backcountry and allows a more natural movement and less resistant. That said, I have not skied on contemporary AT gear...

Re: Onion River Sports closing...

Madriver: I also came from an alpine tradition. I took up BC skiing over 30 years ago and started of with AT gear. I went retro and never went back. I ski on three pins (no cable/free the heel), soft plastic old t-3 boots and Madshus or Asnes skis. I also ski on skinny skis when I am not doing turns...

Re: Onion River Sports closing...

Wow! This is such a bummer! I have bought almost all my touring and XCD skis from them. They gave great customer service. So good that I would buy from this Vermont store rather than local stores in Montana where I live. Also bad for the employees who will lose their jobs.
