Re: Alpina Alaska 75 help.a guy out

I realize this is an odd request, but my old boots just blew out last week and I ordered new boots online (I live very far from any shop that stocks Alpina boots) they're Alpina Alaska 75's in size 44. My new skis/bindings were originally to be mounted for my old sole length, but now need to be mou...

Re: Excursion 88 to Ingstad

ianjt,

What part of Idaho are you in? I'm in Boise and happen to have a pair of Ingstads set up with NNN BC. I also wouldn't mind checking out the E88. If you are interested in meeting up sometime and trying them out, drop me a pm.

John

Re: asnes Ingstad waxless vs BC/waxable

if it's a plastic riser. you only get so many times you can screw into it. remember to turn the screw backwards until you here and feel it "click" of it dropping in place and then screw in normally, this way the threads will follow the old pathways, do less damage, and not pull out as easy. Voile t...

Re: asnes Ingstad waxless vs BC/waxable

The 10mm riser plates are there because I like the climbing wires, and also because it would allow me to switch around the main bindings, Rottefella ST Hardwire cable, with the Voile 3 pin cables on my Nansens on the fly, if I find one or the other more suited to XC as opposed to more vertical tour...

Roelant Yes, I'll give an update once we get enough snow here to give them a decent run or two! lowangle al Absolutely no question in my mind what these are for.

Alico NNN BC Boots

So, these arrived yesterday. The spoils of yet another late-night, alcohol-fueled eBay binge. They are basically an Alico Blaze upper with a BC sole. Man, these are some powerful boots! Looks like they may have been tried on once but other than that, zero miles on them. I've never run into anything ...

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

I have been out a few more times since my weekend trip a week and a half ago. I cannot, for the life of me, initiate any sort of turn. First of all, I'm happy to see another fellow Idahoan here! I'll be honest, I'm probably not the one to offer much in the way of detailed technical advice on how to...

Re: Size and Ski Question

Jalp, thanks for the heads up! I am near McCall. From what I gather, the 10th Mountains are essentially Epochs, which brings me back to size/weight considerations. Well, McCall is a great area for BC XC, I'm a little envious. Definitely don't overlook the groomed trail options available in the area...

Re: Gear Basket

New E99 and E109 Tour Xtralites on ebay. Very good price if you are looking for 200cm. I purchased a pair of E99's from this seller last February. Check with the seller, they may have other lengths available. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-FISCHER-E109-BCX-EASY-SKIN-200-CM-SKIS-ONLY-SUPER-DEAL/3832712...
