Re: When to Drop a Knee

I have this citrus sticker remover that cuts the wax really well. I scraped all the red goo off this morning then cleaned the bases with the citrus stuff. I hot waxed polar and then corked on polar. Seems to be back to a nice layer that will allow hard wax to be rubbed on. My goal is to learn what I...

Re: When to Drop a Knee

Thanks fish and Al and jyw5. I eventually put red on the whole ski and was able to work up my backyard with lots of switchbacks. I would like to be able to climb straight up a hill at this angle but maybe this is the limit of what wax can do? The place you recommend, fish, is out of stock in the red...

Re: When to Drop a Knee

Thank you for taking the time to respond, jyw5. I have no idea what I am doing and I have been somewhat stingy about how I am buying things like wax. Are you saying that you hot wax the color of the day on top of polar? I tried again and had a lot more luck getting a layer of red wax on at room temp...

Re: When to Drop a Knee

I am giving the wax at least one more try. I stripped the glide wax off and hot waxed one layer of swix polar. Then I corked in two layers of swix polar on top of that. Today we finally had snow. Wet heavy stuff. I started out corking in swix blue under the toe piece. It was about a foot long. It wa...

Re: Broke my favorite resort skis :'( telebry saved my legs. Anyone know where to find used k2 sidestash?

Telecat, Sorry about your skis. Your story has reaffirmed my commitment to telebry plates. A little weight and even a little wobble is better than orthopedic surgery. I have made my peace with swiss-cheese skis. Right or wrong I am personally OK with skiing skis that I have put the third mount on. I...

Re: Warm Again this Winter is not My Favorite

There is a 'winter storm warning' for this weekend. But it looks like it will be all rain and then more rain three days later.

What happened to that winter around 2010 when the snow was so deep that I couldn't see around the corner at stop signs? Do I have to move to the UP?

Very cool Lo-Fi. Unfortunately now I can't stop thinking about finding a pair for myself.

Re: Another new Rotte binding

Mr Lofi,

Will you please tell me what kind of binding is in this animation? I have become obsessed with being able to identify bindings quickly.

Re: When to Drop a Knee

Then I guess I am not sure what to try next. I am looking at doing laps on small hills most likely. Do you have a suggestion for smooth transitions from up to down to up?

Re: When to Drop a Knee

Telemark equipment and the telemark turn allow for complete skiing: Near perfect continuity between flats, uphills and downhills. All the responses have been awesome but this is the one that really spoke to me personally. Getting the tools and developing the technique to climb and descend with litt...
