Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

That looks like a great place to ski, but I wasn't overly impressed with skiing. Intermediate mostly, IMO. :D Hey lowangle, I am happy you won't get the chance to see my video of me skiing my skinny Europa 99 tonight with my headlamp as I am not even close to be an intermediate tele skier :lol: But...

Re: Same skin for two sets of skis?

The only time I needed wall to wall skins is when traversing a steep hard packed slope. When the snow is hard I would be on a more narrow ski anyway. So if the skins fit your narrow ski wall to wall they have you covered for hard snow and will probably work on your wider ski in soft snow. Joe, it so...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

It was a good video, I should have left it at that. It is a dying art and has been for a long time so it's good that you posted it. I just thought that the likes of Steve Barnett and those with his skill and experience would have made it look more inspiring.

Good luck with the gear and the foot Robert. Take it easy and don't push it, it's all about being out there.

It's not as much about the weight as it is about the ROM of not having my ankle immobilized by the higher cuff of the three buckle boot.

Re: NNN BC - ski width

The thing that cables do for me is give me more control over an unweighted ski, like during turn transitions. Without the cable I only get edge control when the ski is weighted, with cables I get edge contact throughout the turn. It leads to smoother turns for me. You probably won't feel it as much ...
