Re: Changes in Fischer lineup?

.........I don't buy anything Chinese except fortune cookies Are you sure? What about the device you typed this post on – mobile or stationary? Your television? Home electronic devices? All of them free from Chinese components/raw materials? – not to mention all that household stuff, hardware, text...

Re: Changes in Fischer lineup?

I have Madshus Nordics here, three of them in fact, with “Made in China” clearly visible on the topsheet. Likewise an alpine-touring ski from K2 (Shuksan), which had a removable “Made in China” sticker on delivery. I have absolutely no complaints regarding any of the four. We have a popular brand of...

Re: Front skins with kicker skins instead of full length... anyone tried this?

Yeah, you think I'm bluffing ? Bluffing, no; misreading, yes. I was referring to precipitation (Nedbør on the yr-chart), not wind. The update for Finse has revised the 21mm downwards to 15mm, and the wind upwards from 16 m/s to 18 m/s. Whichever way it turns out our intrepid gentleman traveller is ...

Re: Front skins with kicker skins instead of full length... anyone tried this?

Bonjour Jura (bonjura?), I'll see you, and raise you 4 m/s! …….and I’ll raise you on your forecast 0.9mm precipitation to 21mm. In “normal” circumstances (i.e. dry snow, less wind) that would equate to 21cm snow – so the Honourable Member Crayefish will have a bit of shovelling to do overnight. Fin...

If you’re on Hardangervidda right now and you can read this, it will soon be time to batten down the hatches.
Finse 21.Feb.png
17 m/s is 61 kph and just short of Beaufort 8 – not ideal for hanging out the washing.

If it were me, I’d already be making a dash for the nearest haven.

Re: XC(D?) skis for a big man

Have you thought of renting? There are lots of private owners in Norway who rent out their skis when not in use, for example on hygglo.no. This link is for Oslo region, but I think you can change the settings to your local region: https://www.hygglo.no/category/9286-fjellski/oslo All of the models w...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

And now for something completely different: The famous “Beltebil” (tracked car). These are ancient NATO snow vans from the 1950’s. A local transport company bought up a whole fleet of them and maintains them in working order. They use them to ferry skiers/tourists/weekend cabin visitors from the roa...

Re: Alpina Alaska XP failure?!

Going back to your original post and the third photo in that post, I have two questions: 1) Does the central part of the upper-construction (the pink-coloured part) make direct contact with the ribs on the sole or is there a definite void between the two parts in that area? 2) Is the grey material a...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

For those of us who can’t get enough of Norway (and I would be one of those), here is a continuation of my last series of pictures. Some of us should be getting a commission from the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries (tourist authority) for posting these photos. Breheimen/Jotunheim...
