Re: Satchel’s Neophyte Nordic Backcountry Adventure Thread

I've been enjoying your photos from the season -- your area reminds me of my days growing up in Ohio. I used to use this stuff called "Maxi Glide" on my waxless XC skis for that kind of snow/conditions. I have not really kept up on that stuff in recent years/decades, so could not even begi...

Re: SNOW!!!! whatcha got? (Redux w/ pic)

Good to see Hoodoo open. It has always been a bit sketchy regarding snow. Do they still have free skiing for seniors 65 +? Even though my dad was closer to Bachelor, he took advantage of the free skiing at Hoodoo. The only time I skied there was with him x-c skiing out to Big Lake and beyond. He wa...

Re: New Telemarker

I've been skiing with my son since he was very young. We started the kids on "snow party" skis when they were 2 or 3 years old and went from there. That boy turned 18 this week and graduates from HS in a few months. I'm losing my ski buddy, but we are making sure we squeeze the best of thi...

Re: Interesting site.

Hey Now Harris, Thanks for posting this info, link, and video. One of the cool things from the old T-tips site was the "instructional" videos with Urmas - I used to watch those over and over to glean some good visuals. Mitch's videos featuring Big Tim were pretty awesome as well! I look fo...

Re: What it is like to be an old school, hard core tele head on Tele Tips.

Haven't been to Crystal yet this year . . . Are you in the area? I'm down in Oregon but got up to Crystal in early January for three days of skiing. While still pretty low tide conditions, we enjoyed a nice spring like day, a high clouds but warmish day, and a very soft (and of course rainy) day. I...
