We kind of takeover that day. Lots of demos, pointers, tours. Don Portman comes over and helps out along with our local crew.

We are also doing a Hok demo/instruction at 49* north on January 6th at the nordic center.

Other events are possible too... we are working on that. Also some new videos that are a bit more dynamic :shock:


YES! AWESOME! I will definitely try to make it out there on the 20th next month and I'll bring the KOMs. Things have been slow on your blog, I'm happy to hear this event is still on!

Hopefully others. I'd like to come, but will be busy both days. Does Mountain Gear do any demos of these?

I am starting to consider pulling the NNNBC binding off my Hoks...

It isn't the NNNBC boot (Alaska) or binding (Magnum) that I am unhappy with- it is the fact that the adapter plate effectively acts as a riser.

I don't like it- especially with a soft leather XC boot.

I may move to 3-pin, or go back to the universal binding...

Haven't decided yet.
