I have been stuck with this incurable fever for 42 years... If you ever hear of a good therapy, please drop me a note...

I feel like I should have bought Mrs Woods some of that Asnes magic and now I gots Da Fevah really bad! It doesn't help I'm in a warm climate right now far from snow... Thinking of making rash decisions on the internet!

Especially since I've been crushing the Ingstads up, down, left, right, all over my local mountain lately. Every trail has seen the Ingstads except the one with the big frozen moguls. But it will! I promise it! Then, I see Mrs. Woods trying to drop knee on S98's and being really committed about it and I'm all "oooooOOOooo I got the fevah! I shoulda gotten her some FT62 or Rabb 68s!" and I am remorseful.

Oh buddy - I can relate. I wish I was paying more attention last year and got in on the group order at all.

I sure hope there is enough interest for another Great North American Asnes Fever order again for next season (and that Johnny doesn't mind the work!). I've already started funneling the money out so the wife won't notice if I get three or four pairs.... haha.

IIIIIIIIII just caught daaa fevaaaa! Big time. Mr. Ingstad was waiting for me in the hallway and literally jumped me when I got home. BAM! Ouch. Mr. is a full 200cm, the darkest Ingstad of them all. This one was actually physically born in the Motherland, Noreg.

He was actually very happy to find a new home, having surely spend a few years collecting dust in someones basement around Ithaca, NY. Cecilie is not pleased.

THANK YOU TRASHCAT!

Wow.
I live for the Telemark arc....The feeeeeeel.....I ski miles to get to a place where there is guaranteed snow to do the deal....TM

Tried out the new Nansens - first time on wax skis. Haven’t mastered it yet - found I needed the mini skins for these trails. Image

Beautiful shot of the Nansen on that beautiful fresh snow.
Please keep us posted on your experiences with this ski! Perhaps write a review?

Also- am very interested in your experience with the E109- on its own and compared to the Nansen.
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

Wow.
Very cool.
Looking forward to your experiences with the Ingstad Ben. And please give us a comparison between it and the Cecile/Nansen- oh, and the E99/E109/Tour 10th Mtn; etc.....
