Re: warm wet snow: kicker skins vs soft kick wax

I've had good luck with the red/silver this winter at temps up to about 40F. I also found that it also worked on refrozen snow without much drag and it seemed to stay on.

Re: E99 vs. Outback 68 vs. Sporten Ranger

I think Ski nut should find some cheap used skis to at least try a single camber compared to double camber, or borrow some. It's a different feel. A stiff double camber ski needs to be heavily weighted to engage the edge underfoot. Single camber you may just need to roll the ski over to start carvin...

Re: Spring Time

Nice catch there Fish, I recently read that suckers not only taste good, they also don't accumulate pollutants in their flesh as much as other fish. I have been boating since early March when the lake started to thaw but haven't had any fishing success. It has been nice to enjoy Spring two months ea...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

That looks like a great place to ski, but I wasn't overly impressed with skiing. Intermediate mostly, IMO. :D Hey lowangle, I am happy you won't get the chance to see my video of me skiing my skinny Europa 99 tonight with my headlamp as I am not even close to be an intermediate tele skier :lol: But...

Re: Same skin for two sets of skis?

I have been switching between NNN BC, NNN all of last week. The snow was fantastic on sunday after the storm which brought almost a foot of powder in 1 day. But since then, it has turned to heavy cement. I am doing the Eklutna Traverse next wk, so I have also been training on my S125s with Silvrett...

Re: Same skin for two sets of skis?

The only time I needed wall to wall skins is when traversing a steep hard packed slope. When the snow is hard I would be on a more narrow ski anyway. So if the skins fit your narrow ski wall to wall they have you covered for hard snow and will probably work on your wider ski in soft snow. Joe, it so...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

It was a good video, I should have left it at that. It is a dying art and has been for a long time so it's good that you posted it. I just thought that the likes of Steve Barnett and those with his skill and experience would have made it look more inspiring.

Re: Transition from Telemark :(

Good luck with the gear and the foot Robert. Take it easy and don't push it, it's all about being out there.
