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...

Re: riser plates in the backcountry?

Riser plates are kinda a non-issue. I'm not a big fan of the Meidjo 2.0 (have not experimented with the 2,1) after they pulled out of my ski within 2 weeks under normal conditions, but one of the things I really like about it was that it sat down lower on the ski than any other NTN.

Re: Spring snow/high water content snow base grind

The place is called "Crosson Ski." I wish I could work on a Telemark ski with them, but I wasn't dumb enough to ask. There is no market there that could support the $1200 per pair price tag and tooling setup investment required. They did offer me some blemishes of their "All Mountain&...

Spring snow/high water content snow base grind

One of the problems I've found using fatter skis in high water content snow is that no matter what wax you use they will suck down with water vacuum in certain conditions that are common mid-mountain here in the PNW. East Coast skiers encounter the same in Spring conditions where the snow isn't quit...
