Re: Need Telemark XCD gear advice

Karl and Tom, If the fit of the T4s is bad for you, try the Scott/Garmont Excursion. A very different last. Unfortunately the Alfa Greenland (75mm version of the Skarvet) is not a step up in stiffness from, well pretty much anything. As much as I love what Alfa does, this is the softest boot around,...

Re: Need Telemark XCD gear advice

Karl, IMO, you'd be downgrading moving from your leather Crispis to either of the floppy thermomolded 75mm boots you mentioned in your OP. If you want more downhill power than the Crispis, find an old pair of Asolo Extremes or something similar, or go plastic with something like the T4 or Excursion....

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

Nice skis Nitram. Did you see if your boots will fit in the binding yet? you may need a xc ski boot for them to work. Yeah, the best are the old school canadian made Alfa vulcs. In some conditions, nothing beats a nice pair of norwegian woodies. Among others, I have a beautiful oiled pair in my liv...

Maybe the narrower ones really do glide nicely, but at least my 58mm mohair X-skins were a bit of a letdown regarding glide.

When it comes down to great glide, skins are skins, no other way to it. Pull out the grip wax when the snow is below freezing!

Re: October Powder

Love the red laces and the red flag tag. My boots are still smooth and shiny. Like a pair of dance shoes that have yet to attend a party. I did have a few rub spots on my feet from my first outing, so it will take some time to break them in and figure out a sock combination that will work for me. T...

Re: Mike Horn and Borge Ousland aiming for the North Pole

so they brought boats for the open-water parts? that's hardcore! Better ski that ice cap before it's gone.... Ya I gathered they sailed as far as they could on Mike's private sailboat, then hoped on ice and are skiing now. I think they plan on meeting the sailboat on the other side of the Northpole...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Traverse 78

Very nice review. Thanks a lot. I am looking to introduce my girlfriend to backcountry skiing and I want a stable and slow ski for her. I was considering to buy the Excursion 88. Do you think that will be a good ski, for beginners? Also, based on the fact that it is a wide ski, does it need to be t...
