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...

Lake Huron 43 30N the Levithon and the Ho that Came to Dinner

Well , March 24 was Palm Sunday, so my last time on skis was March 23, and that was rental snow. My shoulder season has been really long. We thawed end of February, and despite more 2"-4" snowfalls, there was never any trail skiing snow after February at home. A couple friends and I made a...

Re: Alico Nordic March sizing

[quote="lilcliffy"]Hi Rod- I am a 42.5EU, (27-27.5 Mondo) and normally wear a 9-9.5US. I have trouble with this boot because of boot volume- not length. I have a small volume foot and I find these boots to be large volume. I am diligently training the leather so that they stop pinching my ...

Re: Ski Care

I would imagine you could buy a tin of Nordic grip wax and cork it into the bases. You could wipe it on the edges as well to protect them. You will want to protect the extruded bases as well (the scaled part), you could use grip wax there as well. Grip wax costs money too, and you probably will need...

Re: Ski Care

I would add that I have been using paraffin for the past couple of years. I put it on pretty thick so I get good flow over the edges. It comes off nicely when November comes around. The bases look fresh and the edges clean in November, and it is much cheaper than any ski wax. It seems to work well, ...

Re: Spring skiing voyaging... which ski to bring?

Sorry to hear Woods, but I admire your attitude. I hope you get more spring skiing, you seem to have some great terrain for that (and winter skiing). I am south of T$ and Askel, I am hoping it stays warm. They are getting snow, it's raining here. The problem is it turning into freezing rain. Power o...

Re: The UP Conditions Report Thread

Cool stuff Askel, I was just looking a a snow cover map over the weekend. I wish the Porkies were closer, nice to see your reports though. I also enjoyed your Utah report. I landed in Utah with a 100 degree fever one year, missed the first day of skiing and had trouble keeping up the next couple of ...

Re: Best ski for Nnn-BC xcD

Hello, I did purchase a Falketind 62 at 188 cm. I am 175 cm tall, and recent discovered I am up to 88 kg. I still wear the same size pants??? My old sports jacket is tight in the shoulders, but I'm not as strong as I was at 40??? My apologies for diverting into my questions about what happens as you...
