Re: NNN BC bindings: Auto or Manual?

I prefer the manuals because they're easier to get off when you're upside down.

Edit: also, I really like the clunk you get when you close them.

Re: which fjellski?

Krakus if the first reviews of the Otto Sverdrups come in and everyone agrees they're a pile of shite, I'll laugh for a fortnight solidly. But that's unlikely, so if the rumours are true it's probably a pair of those you're after! I say this because they look like they might offer more control than ...

In your place I'd then trust the wisdom of the manufacturer and take 190. I doubt that anyone on this forum has skied the Otto Sverdrup anyways (except perhaps Crister who works for Åsnes).
Crister's left Åsnes.

It sounds kind of perfect for what I want to do now (exploring with a few nice turny hills/ mini-'expeditions'), I have to say...

I just want to say:

Earth crust camber

one more time.
I'm glad I'm not the only one intrigued by the EARTH CRUST CAMBER and the VIKING HELMET TIP.

So many questions. It's all a little like Apple bought out Porsche and turned them into a ski company.

Re: Uh oh. Norrøna skis.

Anyway. The Norrøna skis are here. https://www.norrona.com/en-GB/products/lyngen/lyngen-woodcore94-ski-touring-skis/?color=1105 They're the same prices as the equivalent EVI skis, or thereabouts. I suspect that the Lyngen might be the most interesting for most people here? At a cool 1,700 USD for th...

Re: Old ski found in melting glacier in Norway

This is amazing! They found the second ski! I possibly shared this in the Pictures Pictures Pictures thread, but we went on a trans-Norway road trip this summer and went past the rock engravings at Bøla. It's a truly magical spot. One of the engravings is of a full-sized skier! (The first picture is...

Re: Asnes Nansen Review

@Musk Ox If everyone has a pair of Nansens where you are, do you see Norwegians making nice turns? Do you see guys in the 190 lb range moving along the flats at speed. I think if they came in a 210 I already would have made the order! You certainly do see Norwegians make nice turns on Nansens @fish...

Re: Asnes sales, North America?

Good advice, and thanks. Åsnes charts say the 200s for me (84kg, 185lbs), and the 210s are sold out at Neptune anyway. Looks like I'm getting the last 200s at that. I pack light. Just pulled the trigger. Well done! I'm 79kg and got the 200s and would categorically not want them shorter by the way! ...
