Double thumbs up for Asnes and their awesome customer service. My older Asnes skis had a delam problem and they have been SWIFTLY replaced with a new pair of Ingstad BC!

Tele2$R2$B. Dunno about Lucky Charms and what he would have to say but you need a pair of MR48: only way you could race me on the flats and maybe win. Grin. When it comes to arking those babies tho, I think you already got all you need. Keep shreddin' it bro.

Thanks Canna, you post four more interesting articles from The NY Times and I will need to pay to read them! Hope all is well! Please post if you decide to ski the Presidentials. With Woods out of commission, I'm not getting my New Hampshire fix.

Hi eveyone.

I have updated the webpage with a lot of videos and tutorials for climbing skins here:

https://www.en.asnes.com/tutorials-videos/

There has also been uploaded more interesting information here:

https://www.en.asnes.com/climbing-skins ... nd-tricks/


About that delayed easter egg - here is the 2019/2020 workbook (IN ENGLISH!):

Sorry for the delay, I didn't notice that there had been activity on the board and that you had asked for the workbook. I hope you enjoy the read!

Best regards, Crister @ Åsnes

Thank you Cristers for the catalogue! WooHoo!

It's not even full spring here and I can't wait for December! Auughhh it's going to be a long summer...

I am surprised at what happened to The Green Man... :shock: (The Gamme 54 is best ski I have ever had the pleasure to ski in this category, EVER)

IDK Woods, All I can see is a wood core fulllength metal edge BC ski that weighs only 825grams at 200cm. Man oh man, I have to chat with Børge Ousland.
