Re: Boot-Binding Compatibility

I find the hardwire pairs nicely with my T-4. I think it has a nice amount of pressure to flex my T-4's. I now have two pair of skis mounted with 3-pin cable bindings. Sooner or later I will ski the T-4's with one of those 3-pin cable skis, but for now I have not skied the T-4 with a 3-pin cable, I ...

Re: The UP Conditions Report Thread

Breaking out the Vectors yet Conny? If you are, is it filled in enough for the downhills? I still have a dent in my knee cap from a time I caught a tip going downhill in 2 feet of UP fresh. I hit a rock with my knee, it probably only had 2" of cover and we were playing last one to the bottom. I...

Re: Do I need a rebar?

I never have had an NNN boot, but I believe there could very well be a metal plate that would have been molded in. If you drilled in about 1/16" you would find either a plate, or find me wrong. If there is a plate it would be the bottom of a steel rectangle, the bar being the top. You should be...

Re: Chord Center mounting- does it make any sense?

Great posts, it is funny that I can agree that I believe a cm or two should be something that most skiers will adapt to. On the other side of the coin, I believe that new rocker designed skis are changing the rules. When I first flexed my new FT 62 skis, I was very concerned. I thought they would re...

Randoskier, thank you for sharing the beautiful photos. I have not even read much of ski touring in Norway. It appears that you had a wonderful adventure.

Re: Looking for BC XCd Ski Recommendations

I bet Nordic trail skiing would be way more popular, if r...

Re: Asnes Storetind- mounting

I have no idea how the Storetind will measure out. I can say that on the Falketind 62, I found balance point. I then measured chord center (the tail is heavily rockered) chord center came out on balance point of both skis, to the mm. I then turned the ski over, to see that also is the most narrow po...

Re: Michigan Dune Schooning Jan 2018 Check In

Hey fisheater, I've noticed that you've posted a couple times about skiing the Saugatuck dunes. I was <10 miles away on Monday for a family holiday event. The snow was actually stacking up nicely out there finally. There is a GREAT lakeshore forecast for the entire lakeshore to get hammered with LE...

Re: The crappiest conditions ever?

If I get on a plane to go skiing I am landing in Salt Lake City. Cheap lodging in SLC, reasonable lift tickets (if there is such a thing). The most important thing is the terrain was challenging (off piste) when I was in my thirties mostly on alpine equipment, and Alta. Snowbird, and Solitude get 50...

Re: The Åsnes Thread

Tell the kids to take a close look at those skis, because they will not see much of those until the lift line ;)
