Re: Alpina Alaska Boots in very cold weather

Hi!
If you are in Scandinavia it is easy to get the Lundhags guide bc. This is a super warm boot. Classic Lundhags outer shell with removable felt insole. Its the only boot i have tried so i have not comparisons but i am happy with it and its super stiff and nice for the downhill.

Cheers/Petter

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

I had the 45mm mohairs last season full length for everything on Gamme. I see a substantial wear on the rear bit that seems to go beyond the camber. I just got replacement mohairs to use full length and now im going to cut down the worn part for flatter sections. I think economically there is logic ...

Re: Falketind 62 Review

Thanks for your input. Im on NNNBC so i guess FT62 might be as wide as i go not being Johnny. Unfortunately we just went from a good snowpack to nothing in like three days. That always kill my shopping mood. Thanks mr Greenhouse!

Re: Falketind 62 Review

Yes by touring i mean classic k&g. Going downhill, what do you feel is the difference between the 62 and 68 (except float). I read your last post on the Gammes and i agree with you its a super do it all ski (almost). Hence maybe i should sacrifice more k&g for turning to get a real and significant d...

Re: Falketind 62 Review

Now i see johnny is claiming the Rabb68 to be the perfect ski for everything. I wonder how the FT62 compares to the Rabb68 in terms of tourability. What do you guys think. Is it as easy as:

Touring
Ingstad > FT62 > Rabb68 or are matters more complicated?

Re: Lurkskiing

:D you might be right Al! Im definately not arguing the superiority of the lurk (except with hoks which i think totally need the lurk to compensate for shortness). Today i missed having to poles on the flats. Very slow. New poles coming though. However! Being as poor a skier as me you cant really th...

Re: Lurkskiing

Nice! The feeling of control with the lurk on the hoks is amazing. I tried the lurk with 2m skis last year going down a narrower trail and could not really replicate the super quick turning of the hoks (obviously) but i still think it gives more confidence. As for climbing i think the classic double...

Lurkskiing

Anybody out there who regularly or in occasion use a lurk instead of two poles? With hoks its obvious but in other contexts? I broke a pole yesterday so today I went skiing with my Nansens and a lurk. Super short tour and nothing special but its a nice feeling and i think with training it could aid ...
