Re: voile ultravector

Haven't skied any of those myself, other than the World Piste's, but there's loads of previous posts here on the V6 and Ultravectors. Haven't heard much, if anything, about the others, but the Voile's are very highly spoken of. If nobody chimes in on this post soon enough, a little search here will ...

Re: Advice on Lift service set up

If you want to stay as light and keep things simple, you could try your Fusion's with, perhaps, a decent used tele ski, with bindings if you want them. Personally, I'd go this route rather than mess with the alpine skis; all this keeping in consideration that you'll be skiing easy/moderate terrain a...

Re: Opinion on Skin Skis?

"The new tech in nordic K&G is skin skis..."
Well, not exactly new. I was replacing mohair strips on Trak waxless XC skis in the early 80's. Kinda like when Chouinard introduced the original Riva binding, which had a remarkable resemblance to bindings from the early 1900's.

Re: Nnnbc magnum bindings on wide skis???

Sometimes, the greater the feeeeeeel, the greater the flail. It's all good... survival technique on skinnies and leathers, or dancing where and how you'd like on a little more boot and ski. Mind you, I ski the spectrum myself, choosing the tools and the terrain as the day, and my mood, suggest. Ther...

Re: Vice mounting without jig

...and tapping the top metal layer (and only enough to barely go thru it) is often recommended as well. Someplace like Tognar would have 'em.

Re: Vice mounting without jig

Fisheater has provided a good description of what to do if you use a conventional bit. One fine point is that it's generally accepted that a slight countering on the top she helps avoid the "volcano" effect: tightening the screws pulls up on the top sheet. Dedicated ski bits will often have the coun...

Re: Vice mounting without jig

Skis usually have the recommended drill bit size printed on the top sheet in the mounting area(3.5, 3.6, 4.1 are common). If not, the general rule is 3.5 or 6 if there's no metal top sheet, 4.1 if there is. Be sure to eyeball the bit along the sidewall of the ski before you drill,to be sure it's not...

Re: help with mounting bindings on fischer sbound.

Yes, the plate with the cable guides is a separate riser. Keep an eye on your heel lever rotating off center with that model.
In order to use it with another Riva toe piece, you'll need to have cable guides on the sidewalls.

Re: Scarpa T2 Boots on G3 Targa binding

Tif it's the one I'm thinking of, it's the first peak west of Twin Peaks. Hike west along the ridge from the tram (above Little Cloud). The chute faces east, more or less. I know the name of it, but of course it escapes me at the moment. I did note the valley looks closer than that, but the entry, t...
