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...

Re: Arctic Sweden-Norway (last April)

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: 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 ;)

Re: Asnes Storetind- mounting

Gareth I am very interested in your decision as well. The lift served and side country guys generally claim boot center on the mark on the ski. I will watch this thread with great interest. My plan for now is to put pencil marks at balance point, and chord center, and start scratching my head. I don...

Re: Sport Albert Catalogue!

I will be looking forward to my catalogue next year. Will it come in English or German. I speak broken Spanish, if I were to learn a third language French would be my first choice. Of course the Latinos are happy and supportive that I attempt to speak their language. I doubt broken French would go a...
