Re: Any info on the Rossignol OT 65 Positrack

As a general comment, I had a pair of the Rossi BC 110's and absolutely hated them in difficult Spring snow. The Rossi BC skis, in my opinion, have an inferior construction and less lateral rigidity than the Fischer's, despite the fact they come out of the same factory in the Ukraine (partly owned b...

Re: Thinking about new boots, 75mm vs NTN, from my perspective.

It's true, there are subtle differences in the feel of 75mm versus NTN. I mostly ski NTN toe pin boots with Meidjos and TTS bindings. The ski control, as already mentioned, is awesome. However, two years or so ago I had a revelation when I took a pair of waxless G3 Stinger XCD (78 mm u/f) with Spike...

Re: Thinking about new boots, 75mm vs NTN, from my perspective.

Since you are a competent downhill tele skier, I would say look for a pair of second hand NTN boots. If you can find a pair of Scarpa TX’s in your size jump on them. They have three buckles and tour like a dream, if you loosen the top buckle. The TX Pro is stiffer In the cuff with four buckles. I ha...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

I'm starting to warm to my Ski March boots, not that I've skied them since the March lock down in BC :D I previously posted about fit issues, I have a narrow foot and they sent me the Wide version. I had bought a pair of the footbeds from NB recommended, I believe by Woodserson, so I stuck them in t...

Re: DIY Skin Skis

Thanks Lars for your response, that’s a really useful graphic. I’ll give it a try start of next season. If it doesn’t work I can fine tune.

DIY Skin Skis

I have a pair of old Atomic Aspects (85 mm underfoot) and also some old narrow 70 mm skins I never use. As it seems the ski resorts in the Covid -19 era may not open, fully, or alternatively with horrendous line ups I'm thinking I need another option for some mellow tours. So what is the optimum set...

Re: Sainte-Tabernacle may 16th

Eew! That snow is so dirty, how can you ski it. :D. I am seriously jealous, our BC Premier said our Provincial Parks would be open on May 14, so I had my skis prepped and ready to go for a skin up the closed Cypress Bowl Ski area. When I checked the BC Parks site, lo and behold, both Cypress and Mou...

Re: Slightly active bindings: Voile Switchback or X2

Don't quote me on this, but I think the Voile rods (small and large) fit both the Hardwire and SB2 spring boxes.

Re: Gear Basket

Yes, those are some really sweet deals they have. I was reading them out to my better half and she gave me that special look, which says “don’t even think about buying more gear we have better uses for the money” :? She’s probably right, I’ve got most of the bases covered for xcd through to high alp...
