The Lauberhorn Downhill

For having a few years, it sometimes surprises me how many things I should have some experience with, that I know nothing about. This just happened to me Monday night when flipping through channels I turned on a FIS event from Wengen, Switzerland the Lauberhorn Downhill. Now I have respect for what ...

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

I was out on my USGI today as well. It was my first trail skiing of the year, although I could have gone on the Green Man skis when I was north with my son Nick over Christmas. I have really been chomping at the bit to get out on the Alaska boots and NNN bindings. Well my never skied NNN mounted USG...

Re: Voile Hardwire Rod Length

Exactly what Woods said. The only thing I would add is to click on the Voile link at the top of the page. Once on the Voile page, click on bindings and go to your binding. The installation instructions are pretty informative, in addition to that info about the threads being out of the cartridge I be...

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

T2 is a really nice boot, I have a T4, but if I was thinking about doing some more resort skiing a T2 would be sweet. To me it sounds like the springs could be shot on your X2's. If you call Voile during business hours they answer the phone in Salt Lake City. Their customer service and tech support ...

Re: HELP MAKE TTALK THE BEST PLACE ON EARTH!

Ben, buy a pair of the East German army pants. They're top shelf quality. Take them to a nice Québécois taylor with a flair for style. Soon you will be stylin' in a cool new pair of wool knickers. At $25 US for the pants, you're off to an inexpensive start

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Wow NM skier, you're really tall ;)
Seeing that you ski a Nansen and an E109 we would appreciate some thoughts on the Nansen. There are quite a few E-109 reviews, but not a lot of Nansen. Having the two to compare and contrast would help paint a picture.
Welcome !

Re: Mystery of the Single Camber Wax Pocket Explained

Ben, while my Tindan 86 are a considerably stiffer flexing ski, they exhibit the same type of flex pattern with a flat area in the arc. My stick man needs to use both hands and all his muscles to bend the Tindan, when only anchoring the tail and arcing the ski from the tip ;). The Tindan still are n...

I'm a construction superintendent, have been an estimator and project manager. As you can see, very limited drawing skills. Does this help?

Re: Karhu 10th Mountain Tour; the "Catamount Class" design profile; and the quest for a mile-crushing deep snow ski

(one thing to keep in mind is that these skis, from what I've read, have very soft tips and the softness starts way back the ski... who knows if it's "double cambered.") Yes- I can't imagine long Finnish touring skis are double-cambered! I can't imagine how heavy one would have to be to e...
