Re: Seeking Advice on NTN

No, Al, I haven't started looking at boots. The good news is that I'm happy skiing on what I've already got. All my stuff is duckbilled from plastic Synergies to Excursions to T3's to leathers. Kind of like one system for versatility of switching boots and skis around. So I will definitely rent an N...

Re: Seeking Advice on NTN

Thanks for the replies, folks. Sounds as though 22 Designs Outlaw X are a favourite.

Seeking Advice on NTN

For 4 years I've been very happily skiing Colorado resorts in Garmont Synergies on Vices mounted on Salomon Q-90's. I resort-ski occasionally on other ski/75 mm. binding combos and usually find them to have one or another positive features. My go-to set, especially off the groomers, has been the Q-9...

Re: Little homemade xcd video

Enjoyed your clip, Tom! Conditions looked great! We've got lots of snow two states over in Colorado, but in the places I've been BC skiing (Grand County) when I leave the packed trail I'm apt to plunge head-over-heels into a metre of unconsolidated snow. And that doesn't usually make for a pretty sc...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

They ARE nice boots! I've persevered through the breaking-in period and I'm appreciating them more each outing. Yesterday I skied my 13th short tour in them. Nothing yet beyond 4 hours of K and g mostly on narrow wooded trails punctuated by meadows. Combining the wool insoles with my orthotics and t...

Re: WTB: Black Diamond spring cartridges

Hello Slow, I was in "Icebox Mountain Sports" yesterday. That's in Fraser, Colorado. In their bargain box they've got a few sets of unused BD cartridges. I think they're "flex" stiffness, but I'm not sure. Don't know much about them. They were priced at about $30 US per pair. Debbie Muenster is the ...

Re: Little homemade xcd video

Bienvenue, Boby! Tremblant (at the resort) is where my son and I in 2014 made our first linked tele turns on old yard-sale alpine skis, lightweight 3-pins, and leathers. We had a blast! And we were hooked. We made several trips there over 3 years. From there we moved up into burly gear, but I still ...

Re: Really New Skis

Enjoy those fat skis, Al! As for them being your last pair, screw that! Maybe they'll end up as your 4th or 5th last, who ever knows! I've been considering getting my last pair, too. Maybe Salomon QST 99's...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Excellent tips here on warming and stretching the leathers. Thanks, all! Now I'm going to ask my wife if she'll wear my Ski Marches to hot yoga and kill two birds with one stone! Good news on the boot saga. After Sunday's stern reading of the riot act to my Alico's, on Tuesday I gave them another ch...
