Re: Tour de la Gaspesie, what ski?

here's an interesting update: http://www.thewildlifenews.com/2012/02/26/remaining-woodland-caribou-in-u-s-in-idaho-barely-holding/ it appears the two biggest problems for caribou are cutting down old-growth trees and hunting. So you see the futility of banning skiers while allowing the forest to be ...

Re: Tour de la Gaspesie, what ski?

Tom - it's definitely because of the caribou! Don't get me wrong, I love conservation and I"m as green and animal-loving as you can find! I wish they'd try introducing caribou in Maine again - it was tried once and failed. However, it's all the fashion to whack backcountry skiers today. It seems tha...

Re: Tour de la Gaspesie, what ski?

yes, it looks like an XC trip, but how rugged are the trails? Are there bowls & snowfields & stuff? Or maybe people are using traditional no-edge XC skis. I'd be thinking 210cm something with edges. that's the extreme tip of Gaspe, there are lodges much closer. I'd be tempted to go there & hire a gu...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

>>I just ordered the Ingstads in 200 cm and the skins. :D

very nice, you are getting some nice skis for the powder, sounds like you're living the dream out there. the Antarctic boots are stiffer in the back, the ankles, than the Alaska, would be better for downhill turning. Very durable too.

Re: Waxless Skis Icing Bad

>>>Well... Actually I'm fine with people staying at resorts and Nordic centers with wimpy track gear... it's more for us! Mike - I suppose you're right about that, but I do like too see the type-A nordic skiing types get out there at 6AM after storm to track it out for me! I like MaxiGlide because i...

Re: Waxless Skis Icing Bad

What is this intelligrip? Hmmmm, madshus, skins and also integrated skins... Seems racer-y. Good for backcountry and XCD? I think they stopped making this a few years ago. The fishscales with the kicker skins is a good idea. The kicker skins don't glide as well as scales, for spring skiing it would...

Re: A Lonely Bear in Eastern Canada...

Mike- the problem is that the yoga tights aren't for you, or any man, they're for the other ladies. That's what you learn from living in Boston! :o as for the herb - it is becoming legal, but not cheap! Not yet anyways. I've been told you could get ounces of pure sativas like Acapaulco Gold, Panama ...

Re: Waxless Skis Icing Bad

:lol: :lol: there do seem to be a lot of older people doing XC skiing! It is easier on the joints, sort of like land swimming. More people are snowshoeing today, but I've seen some reassuring stuff too - the XC ski areas in Massachusetts were packed last year when I went a couple times. We need to g...
