Re: The Åsnes Thread

I am also curious about the two Tind skis. I am too- what is the difference in performance between the 68/76/86? Obviously the 86 would offer more float than the 68- but if you want a powder ski, why wouldn't you go even wider? PLUS- I am sure all of these skis have different camber/rocker profiles...

Re: Up north again- Trondelag Norway, lil bit of bordering Jamtland, Sweden

Randoskier, it is absolutely an enchanting place. To go once would be to have it beckon strongly. Bad snow makes for tiring skiing. Hopefully you were able to make adjustments to your route. With good snow I would like to adjust my route up that mountain in the background. I imagine even a guy from ...

Re: My dreams of Switzerland after so many years

Woods, I am happy that you were able to return to such a magnificent place. I can imagine how such a place would beckon to you. The photos and videos were a pleasure to see, thank you for sharing. Johnny Lighting made a great co-star, I look forward to more adventures with Chuck Flannel.

Re: Voile comparison-contrast

I also only have experience with the 3-pin cable and the 3-pin HW. I find I can give the HW's a few extra twists and they seem to be more active than the 3-P cables. I find the 3-P cable's tension limited by my ability to pull it over the boot. I hesitate to attempt more tension out of the HW only b...

Re: The Åsnes Thread

Great to hear that Asnes is still going strong! I must admit I prefer the graphics/colours of the previous models... I wonder if they are going to keep making the FT62? That would likely be my next purchase- with NNNBC on deck. Also want to try the edgeless Kongsvold... And- of course, the new Ings...

Re: Ski Review: Åsnes Storetind

Great review Gareth, I'll take notes and try to do better next time. I know exactly what you are saying about this ski based upon my experience skiing the fjellski of this group. Al, I wanted a ski that would tour much better than my S-112, so I passed on the FT-68 at Neptune. It is a much better de...

Re: Avalanche Gore Range Colorado 2016

What's a parent to do? That covers so many things. I started late in life and my son's first year in high school is not the stuff of my dreams, I am pulling my hair out. My only advice to you is at 26 young men really do start respecting their parents. Since you are XX, remember we are wired differe...

Looks like your ski partner is a hardy northern girl. Hope you had the right skis trying to keep up with her riding those Hoks ;) !

Re: The UP Conditions Report Thread

I only drove by Ripley once, it didn't look really large, but I really liked the tilt. I would really enjoy it on my current rig. Nice photo, that's for sharing.

Re: Best ski for Nnn-BC xcD

Pete, I bought my FT 62 for two specific purposes. The first was to tour for the purpose of skiing downhill. This could be on the short vertical, but nicely pitched hills around my home (glacially deposited). To ski abandoned ski areas, where I would use winding trails to access the top of the hills...
