Re: Buying Asnes skis...

Thought I might as well add to last year's thread instead of starting a new one! I stopped by Norseman this afternoon while I was in Calgary. I gotta say, the owner Anthony was a heck of a guy. He knew up front that I wasn't buying anything tonight, just wanted to see and flex more Asnes skis in per...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Gamme 54 BC

So glad to see everyone's additional comments on these skis. Looks like the Gamme's really would be my ideal every day touring ski! Unfortunately Norseman in Calgary doesn't carry the Gamme's, nor do they plan to add to stock next year. They offered to put in a special order for me for next season, ...

Voile Hardwire Rod Length

The pictures and stories on this forum are infectious - it's high time I learn the telemark arc. I took Low Angle Al's advice from my prior "picking a new touring ski" thread and bought an old, cheap pair of alpine skis outfitted with Voile Hardwires. The skis are in terrible shape - core shot and r...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Good conditions here in New Mexico too I guess we all have our regional ignorance, but as a Canadian who has only seen New Mexico on a map, I had no idea you guys had that kind of terrain and snowfall! Winter wonderland down there, thanks for the pic. Happy skiing! Sent from my BBB100-1 using Tapat...

Re: ALFA Quest Dynamic / Kikut Perform GTX NNN-BC Ski Boot Review

How are they holding up? I'm sure they are fine. How did you treat the leather? Look rad. Did you use LC's technique with Zamberlan? They are holding up well after the repair, thanks! No additional separation after a few more days of skiing. I used Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP to treat the leather. It f...

Re: ALFA Quest Dynamic / Kikut Perform GTX NNN-BC Ski Boot Review

I am a little bummed out. Went for a 15 km tour on Saturday morning. Mostly skiing across our local large lake. Three inches of fresh powder over top of a nicely consolidated, wind-swept base. Great fast cruising conditions for the USGI's. No steeps, no crazy terrain, nothing weird. Just kick and gl...

Re: Hydration

Another great thread idea, thanks Mitch! I have been wondering on a contraption for preventing freeze up on longer trips myself. Great fix Ben, I am definitely going to make a copy!
