Ben,
I would appreciate that. It should be pretty easy to figure out length from that measurement.
Thank you,
Bob

Re: Alpina Alaska NNNBC

I am a size 11 US, my T-4's are 28.5. Not that it matters, but my Alico Ski March are 10 UK. I have no Euro size boots. Some charts say 44, others 45 for the Alaska. Any opinions are appreciated.
Thank you

Re: Åsnes Gamme

Perhaps the best quiver would be a Gamme 54 and a FT68- as opposed to a Gamme 54 and an Ingstad... Thanks for the excellent information Pete! Gareth[/quote] Gareth, you're killing me! I can't afford 2 sets of new skis! Well, I bought my son new alpine boots, skis, and bindings. I do believe if I wer...

Re: Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

Dell, thanks for posting, and thanks for a positive response regarding scales. I'm not sure I want to go that way, but I appreciate solid advice. BTW, I have been looking for your review of the Glittertind, any help finding it would be appreciated.

Re: Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

Are you stating that you trails are super windy, narrow and steep? Like 5 feet wide at most? Cause that would certainly be a problem while herringboning (can i conjugate thus, cause i just did) 2m long skis. Good wax or half skins and the 2-step frontstep side glide dance should get you up. Yes Ben,...

Re: Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

Ben, I hope you don't mind I call you Ben? I do not have any difficulty turning the USGI ski. I prefer wax to scales. In SE Michigan I find myself using red/silver wax more than I like. I really am thinking about X-skins for those conditions. My uphills are to short for skins, unfortunately they are...

Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

Okay, although I'm in love with the downhill, most of my touring is trail oriented. So coming to this realization, and being that I seem immune to acting my age. I am looking for a go faster Trail outfit. I'm going NNN, I'm thinking Alaska's. Beyond that I don't know. These will not be rock skis, so...

Re: Fischer Sbound 112 ?

Lilcliffy offers great advise, and you will eventually want a "trail ski" for when the snow is consolidated. I was in denial for a long time, but truth be told my trail touring happens a lot more than my downhill touring. For skiing in as little as a few inches of snow you can't beat the F...
