Re: Arctic Sweden-Norway (last April)

Randoskier: I live down at the Swedish coast in Umeå. Haven’t been to skidbäckstugan, but I usually visit artfjället in the autumn to look for chantarelles. I mostly ski at the resorts Hemavan and Tärnaby, and when I tour it is mostly around the Syter peaks.

Nice pictures, thanks for sharing! Hemavan is my main skiing area, we have a cabin up there.

Re: Classic Pins: Rottefella ST vs. Voile HD Mountaineer

Thanks for the answer, I already grinded a millimeter of the front edge of my race T4's - just wanted to check the option of using the Voile binding before I grind of some more of my T4's...

Re: Classic Pins: Rottefella ST vs. Voile HD Mountaineer

Is there any differences between maximal toe bill the ST and 3-p can handle, the ST locks the duckbill very good on my T4s - but it is on last slot of the binding, and I would like to have a more "loose" setting when I am skinning.

Re: A Scarpa survey

When the first rumors about this started, Scarpa hinted about showing prototypes this season. This probably means showing them at ISPO https://www.ispo.com/en/munich

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

Fischer Transalp 75 with voile 3 pin cables and Scarpa T4s I think will manage anything from piste and groomers to cross-ountry, but you will need 4 skins for them, intelligrips, fischer rocker UL65 race skins (think wider and grippier intelligrips), full width mohair and full width nylon skins...bu...

Re: Grip waxing fishscale bases?

Thanks for the replys, everybody! Maybe grip waxing the tips and tails only would be the easiest solution, if the fishscales are pain in the ass to clean up. iBjörn, very interesting test! Quite surprising that the fishscale Rebounds were such slow skis. Today I skied a little with the Intelligrips...

Re: TELEMO SKI & BINDING

Good Work Mark! It is nice that we are a few that are racing with tele skis. Rando race skis a really fun in the piste, the lightness and shortness makes them very fast and manouverable. I have have not had the time to make my own bindings, so I ski with regular Rottefellas 3-pins and T4s for the mo...

Re: Grip waxing fishscale bases?

Do the Intelligrip skins really have better glide than fishscales? I have the Intelligrips and I think they glide ok but not great. If the fishscales are worse, I am not interested in fishcales anymore! Your mileage might vary, as well as any opinion. I did some semi-scientific testing 2 years ago ...

Re: Grip waxing fishscale bases?

I usually ski on old and cold snow i northern scandinavia, the issues I had with fishscale bases is rarely lack of grip, but a very mediocre glide. Today I only tour with Madshus intelligrip skins or Fischer easyskins and not fishscales due to the issues with glide.
