Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Verskis, I also like to ski the same ski as much as possible. That being said, I do prefer a fast trail ski. I have been skiing a USGI as my fast trail ski, but I bought a Gamme. The cover has just been too thin for the Gamme when I own two USGI. I bought a Tindan 86, because there are days when I c...

Re: Favorite Ski Meets Favorite Binding

My FT 62 are 3 pin cable. For XC and D, I just usually ski it 3 pin. When I take it to the ski hill I use the cables. I mounted my Tindan 86 3 pin HW. Maybe for XC and D, I should try pulling the Hardwire and throwing the cables in the pack. I'll have to try sometime.

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Gareth, I am a 45 Euro, and would gladly pay the the gentleman in dead presidents or pretty colored money with the Queens portrait. To me wool is just a marvelous fabric. I did have some polyester wool blend long johns once that I didn't like, but I have never a quality made wool garment that I didn...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Verskis you are much wiser than me. Light touring skis just get deflected too much by heavy, chopped up, refrozen, tilled, and granular snow. On the other hand heavier, stiffer, skis more suited for resort snow wouldn't be nearly as pleasant in the backcountry. Being hard headed, I refused to acknow...

Safety Gear

I have been thinking about safety gear lately. While I wear a helmet mountain biking my local trails, I don't see the need for a helmet skiing those trails. I really am not really thinking about a helmet for the ski hill. I am thinking about adding some knee pads. My wool pants are pretty roomy, I w...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Gamme 54 BC

Well Leo you have succeeded in scaring the tar out of me. My Gamme sitting in the corner as the USGI are the only ski going out in the thin cover I have. That is when I have any snow at all! My construction site still has no power despite my best efforts with the power company. It has been very cold...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Gareth, good to know that you have found good fit in your Guard Advance boots. I would be interested in the contoured wool insoles, those sound awesome! I have flat wool insoles in the Ski March, and my feet are very happy. Contoured wool insoles would be the shiz! I am assuming they Alfa insoles? D...

Re: wax vs. scales (THE KICK)

My thought on the wax slipping a bit as I get further down the trail was two fold. I tend to think the wax is getting polished up a bit. I also figure it is usually getting warmer. I can't remember this happening on a good green wax (swix) day. You have been at this type of skiing longer, so you cou...
