Re: 13 seconds of powder bliss for your pleasure

Excellent! Weather looks a little gothic. What skis are you on? What does your color commentator/buddy yell?

Yep. It’s all within 15minutes out my door. Generally, kind of impenetrable 2nd growth hardwoods with a million face-whipping saplings in-between everything. Still fun though!

Re: What floats your board?

Cliff, your question got me thinking. My personal pre-occupation is touring for turns. I live in the hills so I try to squeeze every turn I can out of the terrain from out my back door. Having started tele skiing in ‘80s, I’ve skied my share of skinny skis, but the only thing that floats my board no...

Re: Hot waxing scales... pro tips!

The paper towel technique isn't working for me, I'm filling the scales pretty good. How do you keep the brash brush from gumming up? You probably need to use more wax and more paper towels than what the dude in the video uses. Trying flooding the skis with more wax, using enough heat and linger tim...

Re: Hot waxing scales... pro tips!

ENOUGH... I know some of you do this. I'm finished not doing it. Let's do it together! What's your technique and be specific on gear. When you say brass/copper brush do you mean TOKO/SWIX or that scary thing from the hardware store? Etc. GO I’ve had success with my Koms following this guy’s method....

Re: Skiing down narrow, steep, switchbacky hiking trails

This maybe obvious, but I try to ski those narrowest of trails like that early telemark ski lesson drill where you do “garlands” of linked uphill turns on a traverse. Straight run or side slip for a moment down the trail and then turn uphill off the trail into the soft stuff, and repeat,,, https://w...

Re: 110 cm of snow...

Mont Comi is probably a little out of the way for most people, but the couple of random times I’ve been there it was great. Tons of snow and it seemed like a super tele community there. ( I think one of the locals was a former national level alpine bump skier and I’ve never seen someone telemark ski...

Re: interesting old 3-pin Telemark instructional video

... I couldn't help but think the skier was an accomplished telemark skier... Yep, I agree that he is a skilled skier and there’s a lot worth observing in the video. I like his turns best at 11:48 where he’s skiing holding his poles like a tray(or like a “two-four”, which is a case of 24 beer up he...

Re: interesting old 3-pin Telemark instructional video

...is the degree of heel lift on the rear foot... (I am well aware that the conventional wisdom is to keep a compact stance, and reduce heel lift on the uphill/trailing foot.) One of the typical reasons to poo-poo system bindings for telemark skiing is the notion that the toe-bar attachment encoura...

Re: interesting old 3-pin Telemark instructional video

... But as far as getting low, you had to. You had to for stability. Those old Asolo Extremes and Snowpines were sloppy, single boots. No liners and rather thin leather. In fact you would crack the welts in about 30 days of skiing resort. There was almost no torsional rigidity and sneaker like fore...
