Re: Swedish Tool Maker Makes Own Wooden Skis

Motivating. Thanks for sharing. How did your winter turn out? Get up north much? My season was pretty good, I actually started pretty early in November and went quite a few times Nov/December. January was pretty good but with the total lack of snow in January and February I kind of stopped going by...

Re: Asnes skis for husband

I see you are in CO. I’m in steamboat and have a nearly new pair of 205 Asnes Ingstads that I am looking to sell because they were quickly replaced by some Asnes Kongsvolds. They have NNNBC bindings. Let me know if that sounds interesting to you. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1M8pbcGP2h3mR4bqi6J1k...

Re: Dog Questions

My next BC skis will be with metal edge, although a subtle type (e.g. Gamme) I read something here about Asnes edges being razor sharp. I got Nansens three weeks ago and don't think they are very sharp. Still worry a bit but that's just me. Maybe it's the more downhill types that are sharp? I am pl...

Re: XCD skis for 250lb Clydesdale?

Hi all, I haven't been on skis for a decade after moving to the warm coastal plains. Apparently a buddy of mine took up XC as his 5th midlife/covid crisis and my little bit of competitive nature kicked in. So I'll be tuning up some of my left over garage sale rock skis and keeping them by the door ...

Re: Newbie wax and snow question

Yeah, as long as you are not feeling the skis drag, you should be good. I think the other person was feeling a little bit of drag. It just depends on which is more important to one, grip or glide, and where the comfort level is. If you tried to ski on skis that had been waxed for an elite Nordic ra...

Re: Åsnes Kongsvold

First time out on my Kongsvold today. Perfect ski for me. I am a bigger dude and this ski has everything I have been looking for in a ski. Supportive enough that I get great K&G and it has great downhill control on the soft-stuff and on a packed down trail. So much faster and smoother than with my S...

Re: XPlore bindings at REI

REI gives a discount when you buy at least three cross-country ski Items (Skis, Boots, Bindings). From what I have seen it can be any combination of items, including 3 of the same type of Item. This Is a good way to save a couple of bucks on the new explore binding if you are already purchasing othe...
