Åsnes Finnmark 54bc

Hi!
We have a dog joining the family this spring if nothing unfortunate happens. This means a dog ski might be necessary shortly. Does anybody have experience with the Finnmark? Is it a Gamme without edges?

All the best
Petter

Re: Same skin for two sets of skis?

For climbing non-complicated terrain I like to zig-zag alot to save achillestendons and overall energy. Generally you can keep a high pace so I dont think you lose much actual speed compared to going straight up. This is possible with a kicker skin or even just kick wax. Att least for reddish slopes.

Re: XCD - the past and future of skiing?

I totally agree on the longboard parable as I also surf and live in Sweden where the surf is always small. There is so much fun to be had in the backyard if you know how to look! Today for example we had a moderate onshore wind magically producing surfable conditions in our local lake using the XCd ...

Re: XCD - the past and future of skiing?

I agree xcd is the future. We are discussing closing the lifts even in super liberal Sweden whereas of course no one can, or should, stop lonely xcding. I have also come across a few people when Im ranting religiosly on the glory of narrow skis with Nnn-BC bindings who come from a genuine alpine bac...

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

Hard to say without trying. I know I like the camber of the 200cm Gamme. I think it climbs effortlessly and feels very manageble. However, I would use the Ousland primarily for longer trips meaning gear and luggage increasing my effective weight to at least 90kg from maybe 80-85 kg for a leisuretrip...

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

Johnny, I read your post on the Ousland being smother than the Gammes but could you delve into a comparison between Gamme 200cm and Ousland 210. Would a longer Ousland turn (or arc...) like a shorter Gamme? I come from a 2m Gamme but would like to try a longer ski for next season. Weight 75kg, lengt...

Re: 2015 Åsnes Combat NATO

This is interesting since I have a 200cm Gamme but think about a longer ski, mainly for floatation but I worry about maneuverability.

Allround ski Ousland 210 vs Gamme 200. I should post it in another thread probably! Thanks for your invaluable input!

Re: 2015 Åsnes Combat NATO

So a full length Gamme then for float and speed. What I was contemplating was whether this new Ousland might have easier turn initiation due to more rocker and thus ease the transition to 210cm skis at my 75kgs.
