Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

I like the choice of wax skis - excuse me if this has already been said but the mohair kicker skins are the perfect companion to the wax Asnes and almost a mandatory accessory IMO.

Re: New rant... Backcountry/wide skis and telemarkers

They have the same topsheets as store-bought skis but way more torsional stiffness for icy race courses. Apparently FIS uses a special hose syste...

Re: Gear Basket

nice find on "Varuste"! a few Asnes skis and also a portal to Alfa and Lundhag boots for the USA. prices look good - Asnes Mountain Tour 51's only $200 and look at this - I believe these are the famous Peltonen hunting skis? all the way up to 270cm https://varuste.net/en/Peltonen+Metsä+Skin?_tu=76571

Re: Alpina BC 1600 Boot

Of course I am known to be somewhat anti-Alaska, having compared the support level to sneakers in the past :...

Re: Any experience with the Alpina BC-1600 Boot?

very nice, the leather looks much better than the pair I had. They added the rand up front which I am not fond of because it reduces the stretch-ability of the leather.
