Re: Barn find tele gear !! Untouched in 30 years

I just noticed that there are some really old wooden alpine skis with cable bindings in the last picture. I'll bet the leather boots are there too. my first alpine skis were wooden, but I was 5yo and mine would have been much shorter. I did always wonder why those old style jumping bindings were not...

Re: What is the deal with telemark skiing?

the reason you only see Telemark skiers on Black Diamond runs is that Tele skiers are born that way. its coded into their genetics, which basically guarantees that there are no "beginner" tele skiers. but in reality, I started XC skiing when I was 4yo. I started ski jumping and alpine skiing at abou...

Re: Rossi skis, Bomber Bishop, Crispi 75mm...for trade?

haha. the CL500 is a 2003 with 37,000 miles. its a highly desirable car in that its the last generation of Merc's full size, V8 2-door cars. its the size of an S class, much larger than an SL...Manufacturers just don't make these types anymore. believe it or not, its a niche collectable due to low m...

Rossi skis, Bomber Bishop, Crispi 75mm...for trade?

I have a nice 75mm setup that I just don't use anymore. I bought the gear at least 10 years ago used, probably right here on this forum....I don't remember. at the time I was lusting after the Bomber Bishops, and it so happened that to get them I could buy the skis, boots and bindings. the package w...

Re: well I've gone and done it now...moving full time to a ski resort

this was my last pickup truck. I sold it a year ago. the problem I have is that I fix up my trucks to a point where you no longer want to do work with them. this time around I need a work truck.

Re: well I've gone and done it now...moving full time to a ski resort

according to my Garmin, I live currently at 104ft of elevation. I agree that in the east, even a few hundred feet can make a difference. I often go running about 15 miles from here at an elevation of closer to 500ft. it can be raining here, but snowing there. I need to buy a pickup truck to haul lum...
