Re: Powder Tips

Everyone is contributing good info, so there's not much to add. When you say you're on "freeride bindings" are you talking about the Rottafella NTN Freeride binding? Just out of curiosity, what boots and bindings are you using if not those bindings? Also, when you look at your skis there should be a...

Re: Atomic Vantage 85 Review

Nice review. I'm 67, 5'8" tall, 160 pounds and ski the Wasatch back. I love this ski, though I am on the CTI version.

I also used the Tx with the Freedom before getting the Comps and they worked fine as well. I have used Quiver ...

Re: Forward Lean: Scarpa TX Comp vs. T1?

I started with G3 Targa bindings and 3 buckle Garmont Syner-G's 10 years ago after 40 years of alpine skiing. I've always disliked excessive forward lean in boots. I eventually went to NTN Freerides (not recommended as they are too restrictive in forward motion and I kept breaking them) and have bee...
