Re: ski with the other ones

Agrred...
But, and this is from personal experience, start on the bunny slopes, and end before they get tired. Don’t upgrade to steeper slopes too fast, even if they are doing well. One rough oversteep run at the end of the day, and they may not want to try again for years.

Re: Skiing down narrow, steep, switchbacky hiking trails

These look like the trails in the Oregon cascades where I learned back country on wood birke beiners. I agree with the suggestions above; I often left one ski in the deep powder, and turned into the hill when it got too fast. A kick turn, where you lift one ski vertcal [while stopped] reverse it int...

Re: Grip waxing fishscale bases?

I never wax the scales, but have used blue wax just in front and behind (during green wax conditions). I know people who have waxwd scales, and never got the wax back off; effectively ruining them.
