Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

I got some new (to me) scarpa T2s in mondo 27.5. It is very clear this will give me good edge control. The boot is much heavier than what I was hoping to have but at least now I should be able to turn. I measured the wire on my switchbox x2s. It is 8 inches. This is consistent with the standard size...

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

Garmont Libero. I hope it is more or less a garmont excursion. What do you think?

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

If the mondo size looks good is there any reason why a ladies boot would not work for me? I weigh 208lbs.

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

Thanks for the response. I am also going through a re-entry into skiing. My daughter loves skiing so far. I am very happy for that. There is just so much to do in skiing these days. From what I remember racing was the only option here other than just going up and down when I was younger. Now the all...

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

The $2.00 skis seem to be workable after a hot wax and scrape. We briefly had snow on the ground so I kicked around the backyard and reconfirmed that I am not able to turn skis like this. I still think these will be fun when going out on flat trails with my family. Do I need a quiver of boots and bi...

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

Awesome deal on those skis!!! $2US? Love it. 2. A setup I can use right now for mostly flat trails where we go hiking. (If it ever stops raining and starts snowing!) 4. If and when I get skilled enough I would like to head off trails and find some gentle untouched hills out in the state land nearby...

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

Thanks to everyone for the advice. I am now looking for a much stiffer, likely plastic, boot for this tele setup. Just before mounting the bindings I got it in my head that I wanted the free pivot point to be the balance point of the ski. Right now with the X2 in 'tour' if I lift the ski by the bind...

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

Or...what exactly are you attempting here as a ski goal? I guess that is the real question! What I wanted to put together was something that would meet all this: 1. Boots comfortable enough to walk some distance on snow and hard surfaces and even drive a car with them on. 2. A setup I can use right...

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

Hi fisheater, Thank you for the response. I live in Holland, MI. In recent years Mulligan's Hollow in Grand Haven has been our weekend spot. We just got back from Boyne Mountain. I saw one guy on telemark gear up there and talked to him briefly. He was on NTN equipment. As you may have guessed I wan...

Re: How wrong is my ski/binding/boot setup

Thank you bgregoire and dnt_upton for the very quick response. I really appreciate it. I do not know anyone personally to ask for advice. I will keep an eye out for plastic boots. Considering the price of new ones I think I will need to find a used boot. Maybe I have the wrong idea about how stiff p...
