Re: Asnes Waxless Skis?

Yeah, I would really like one of the Asnes Mountain Race/Tour too, I'd probably go for the 48 cm ski - the one they introduced last year.

After just seeing the new Crispi boot and the new Asnes, its looking like there is some great new NNN-BC oriented gear this year from Europe.

Re: New Crispi Boot

Those look great. If I didn't have and love Alaskas, I'd be all over these new Crispi boots.

There seemed to be some room between the Stetind and Svartisen - I couldn't choose which way to go (or with Alfa). Hopefully, these are a nice compromise for those that want something in the middle.

Re: Asnes Waxless Skis?

Fluff? New to me. I think the Canadian goverment mandated a no-go on that one.

When I lived in Newfoundland we had corn-on-cob-in-a-can.

And, I've seen canned poutine in New Brunswick.

This should be in the tour food thread. Forget that fancy freeze dried stuff. REAL camping means food in a can.

Re: Asnes Waxless Skis?

I am still eyeing those 35mm mohair skin-locks for my Combat Nato/Ingstad.... Me too. And, I would be prepared to cut them short as well to hopefully get some reasonable glide, even though they are pricey :shock: I don't anticipate grip being a problem in most scenarios where I'd want to use these ...

Re: Asnes Waxless Skis?

Me too. I can't fathom not waxing, and I like it - its part of the ritual of going skiing for me. They go together like peanut butter and jam. For changing conditions I bring different waxes. Not so much a problem for where I live now, except in spring, but it was when I lived down south....

Re: Let's see your 16-17 quiver!

Holy smokes Mike. I only left for a couple of months, and there you go. Congratulations! How old is the little gaffer?

Looks like you got a great winter ahead of you. Kids are awesome!

Re: Let's see your 16-17 quiver!

Thanks Mike. Hope you had a good summer. There is snow on the ground in the valleys here in the Yukon, but not enough to ski yet. Lots in the mountains. Hope you guys back east have a much better season than last year. If not, hope you get a fat bike and nordic skates. Don't waste it indoors or wait...

If I did add another ski, it would probably be the Asnes Mountain Race with NNN-BC. Or, then again, maybe the Asnes Stortind with 3 pins and Garmont Excursions.... THIS IS GOING TO BE AN AWESOME QUIVER AND I'M JUST GOING TO GO AHEAD AND DO IT RIGHT NOW!
