Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

this has probably been covered in other threads, but if I am looking for a ski that I will only use on lift served trails, why wouldn't I look at buying alpine skis and just mount Tele bindings? seems like in recent years the differences have converged. Tele gear tends to be more expensive because i...

Re: has anyone figured out a permanent fix for holes worn in boot bellows?

haha. I know that JB Weld is not right, but its the only product I have experience with...albeit for use on cars. I like the earlier suggestion of combining a soft cure epoxy with a fabric. I am thinking that if I can get a compound on the outside of the boot to bond with with a patch or something o...

Re: has anyone figured out a permanent fix for holes worn in boot bellows?

I like the direction this thread is going. we may end up with a solution. I was thinking of getting some JB Weld https://www.amazon.com/J-B-Weld-8265S-Cold-Weld-Reinforced/dp/B0006O1ICE/ref=asc_df_B0006O1ICE/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198093606370&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=1416946154709684521&h...

Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

yeah, I think I'm convinced at this point that a 109 or so in a 182'ish length is what I should get.

Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

I'm going to be in Vermont later this week and I remembered that there is a decent gear shop in Burlington called Gear Exchange that sells Tele gear. I'm going to go there to see some of the wider skis in person. its rare to get an opp to go to shop that sells tele gear, so I will take advantage.

looks like the right sort of composite. how does it hold up to ski tip rub?

has anyone figured out a permanent fix for holes worn in boot bellows?

so my scarpas have a hole worn in the bellow about the size of a dime. as you can see in the pic, my "fix" is applying duct tape, which lasts 1-2 max. I was thinking about getting some Flex Seal, or gasket repair goop. seems like anything short of an aluminum patch bonded on will just wear through v...

Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

I just had the most insane idea: I'm thinking of using my new skis to go uphill, not just downhill ! I'm currently running 30-50 miles per week to prepare for a 50km trail running race. we all know that Tele skiing is a killer workout, but I was thinking about how to get miles of training done in Fe...

Re: Scott Voodoo NTN doesn't fit outlaw x binding

do you have the same problem with both skis, or just 1? as an experiment, try putting the binding into tour mode, which relaxes the spring a bit and moves the claw back a tiny amount. it doesn't solve the problem, but might indicate you have defective springs.

I'm leaning towards the 22 Designs Outlaw X. I've used them before
