Re: New to tele

The resort world now recommends 85-95 waist skis for ice and hard snow, which is fine. But a good 66 waist carving ski is so much fun on hard snow I can't imagine going without one on resort days with no new snow. I fully agree. I think the industry marketing pitch for 85 to 95 waist skis is becaus...

A Scarpa survey

Maybe others have seen this, but I hadn't. It is a survey put out by Scarpa looking for feedback they will use when considering new designs.

Re: Hammerhead Releasing

Kinda off subject, but I've found that my Vice's like to unsnap if I ski bumps in the most active pin setting. Not sure why, but after going to the second, mid pin setting the problem is gone. It is like in the most active setting they lever the duckbill out. Spring tension doesn't resolve it.

The friggin' Triple Rs

Looks like it might have broke, but out west here we've been stuck with a high pressure zone offshore that is fully shutting down moisture from Washington to CA. It happened in 2014/15 and was dubbed the "Ridiculously Resilient Ridgeline" or triple R by meteorologists. That year was a horr...

Re: New to tele

IMG_1051.jpg I skied the Red Sled Atomic Beta 24 TMs for several years. 180's. Sexy friggin' boards. Early parabolics. They are a good ski for groomers and even lite pow and packed pow. They work in bumps, but the 24 stands for their max turn radius, which is pretty long (think GS ski). Since tele ...

Re: riser plates in the backcountry?

As far as flex- again you are right- this is a more important question- and I really am not experienced enough with modern Telemark bindings to know the differences. I read reviews that say active bindings, NTN included, "give you better edge control." Call me wild or stupid, but I've ski...

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

Since you are skiing with an alpiner, keep it simple; you aren't building a nuke here: use the all mountain ski you ski downhill best on, forget the fish scale base skis and throw the skins on when your buddy does. I mean you and your bud are basically getting from one downhill experience to the oth...
