Re: Complete skiing. Near perfect continuity between flats, uphills and downhills.

Even with the occasional snow, now, in the morning, the short ski season here was over some weeks ago. Thank you all for the help, advice, and gear trading this season. I really need to decide I like sailing and move to the ocean, or decide that I like skiing best and move to the mountains. The long...

Re: Do ya think US is biggest XC market?

the size of the market does not always dictate the advertising budget. Coke, Macdonalds, etc spend billions advertising in the US. are soda drinkers going to forget about Coke if they stop advertising? yup, awareness will age-out. can't ever stop the advertising machine. all of that said, I cannot ...

Re: Musings on Wax

It has been cold here, at least by local standards, with a low last night of 7 Degrees. The high today was 20, so I thought I would be good to go using the two-day old swix blue extra that worked well the last few days. There was lots of fluffy new snow with more falling while I was skiing. I had a ...

After reading reviews on this site, I'm looking for a pair of Alpina Alaska NNN BC boots in size 44. I can't find them anywhere near me, or online. Do any of you guys know anywhere that has them in stock. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks.
@BarkEater, I send you a PM.

Re: Incomplete skiing. No continuity between shuffling on the flats, a line to ride uphill and groomed snow downhill

Thank you all for taking the time to respond. I am now shopping for a quality edge tuning kit. I have a gummy stone that probably needs to be thrown out. Otherwise I don't have any edge tools. Can someone help me put together a kit that will let me put an edge on my skis without spending any more th...

Re: Incomplete skiing. No continuity between shuffling on the flats, a line to ride uphill and groomed snow downhill

FC have you tried P turns with them? It may take a little more finesse and somewhat softer snow then what you were able to do on alpine gear but they should carve turns. If you're just doing T turns I would try some P turns to get a better feel for what the ski can do. We finally have a good base o...
