Re: XCD/Resorts

I have only been there once( Turnigan Pass) many years ago. I went to a 3 day avalanche training school. We skied in but didn't do a lot on skis when we got there. Skiing out was fun.

Re: XCD/Resorts

Thanks al, I live in Seward and will have to make a trip up there to take a look. I have been out of this for so long I am not sure what I am looking for. But I have been making up for lost time with new gear and getting out for some turing and getting in a few turns this year.

XCD/Resorts

Last night my friend invited me to go skiing at the near by resort (Alyeska) and it got me thinking about getting a setup for that. I have been wanting to buy some t4s anyway and would like to have a set of skis that I could do a little "Lift Served" skiing. The closet skis I have now are the Epochs...

Mounting Volie 3 Pin Cable

Thinking of switching the Rotefella Chili Telemark binding to the Volie Cable on my Epochs so I can have the option to remove the cables. Do any of you know if the holes will line up and would you mount them in the same place. Or would new holes have to be drilled.
Thanks

Re: To Riser or Not

I agree on all that's been said. It's really to early in my come back to put a finger on it. I know equipment can fix some fundamental flaws but I want to fix my fundamentals with the equipment that I have. I've been there before and I need time to get things tuned up. I have a lot of drills that I ...

Re: To Riser or Not

Thanks for that MikeK. It's true if you flatten the skis and unweight the tips will naturally find the fall line. Looking back with the lighter boots I think I was leaning up slope too much and not driving my up hill shoulder down slope (hands to the front).

Re: To Riser or Not

Copy on the different technique. I had to Stem/Step into a tele turn to get the down hill ski to bite with the lighter boots. I have used this often in the past but was surprised that I needed that on such a moderate slope. Maybe my legs don't have the strength yet. At 54 and such a long lay off tha...

To Riser or Not

In my return to Nordic and Telemark skiing with about a 10 year lay off I have bought new skis and gear thanks to the advice of a lot of you here. I have been skiing a local XC track that have hills that I can make some turns on. I recently picked up a pair of Epochs and mounted Rotefella Chili bind...
