The Asnes sale has begun at Neptune Mountaineering! Someone has already pounced on the Ingstad 200s - was it Mike? Some other good ones still available.

Yeah I bought 'em.


I bet they were watching this site, waiting for me to buy them before they started their sale... :evil: :evil:

Nice! So you bought 'em before the sale. Not a bad move, you were living dangerously by continuing to wait, someone would have bought them. Hopefully they will re-stock over the summer.

so you now have both the old and new combat skis! So different. I wonder how long it took to evolve from the USGI skis to the current Ingstad model.

Yes both, both in the same length. I think the old ones are quite old, I'd guess 70's or early 80's.

I hope the new ones will be much more like modern ski, which I suspect they will. Johnny really loves those Cecilie skis so I'm hoping these will be every bit as good for me.

I see the Breidablikk are on sale and they have a 200cm!!

I was going to wait until next year and buy them full price anyway, I didn't figure I'd get to snap that 200 Ingstad up on clearance. Had the money now, so I went for it.

The older one were probably made by the company before it went tits up closed down and later resurfaced as the company we now know.
