Re: Combat NATO or Gamme 54, same same?

I own a Gamme and really like it a lot. However skiing mountain hiking trails can really be very challenging. I guess it depends upon the trail. I know of rugged hill country trails in Michigan, in places where the trail runs side hill, it is impossible to wedge or herring bone on the uphill side, ...

Re: Combat NATO or Gamme 54, same same?

Amundsen has been designed exactly for what you are doing; hut trip with pack. The Gamme is more of an all rounder... True, the Amundsen was certainly designed for this but for trips in Northern Scandinavian Fjall (mountains above tree line). Which is quite different than the Quebec landscape and s...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

Just realized, Moderator, that after the conclusion that Ingstad BC wasn't fitting my needs although it is a sharp ski, I continued talking about other skis. Sorry to have brought confusion in this topic, will understand if you remove my last inputs.cheers Don't worry L, you are not the only one wh...

Re: Old Trek Tele Skis

Weren't Trak skis a Karhu NA line? I think Karhu bought Trak on something along the line (for the waxless pattern if my memory serves me right). I assume this pair of Trak is pre-Karhu. I might also simply be creating some fake news, so beware. There was definitely some kind of affiliation there. M...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

And if that "bumper/flexor" on the binding plate is resistant enough to contribute to some power-transfer and facilitate transferring to the glide phase in kick and glide skiing (i.e. bringing the glode ski forwards)- then won't it it be a too much resistance for efficient climbing? For example- I ...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

Laurence, lots of little details to consider. While trekking in deep snow, a ski that floats above theoretically sounds great but unfortunately, its really hard to make that happen. One way is to get them really long, like 3m, but there is no way you are going to maneuver trees in Quebec style winer...

Re: Scott Excursions Shell Size 26.5-28.5 - 27 liner

mpd, the seller was last active here nearly a year ago and that brand and size of boot is quite popular. Perhaps send him a private message but I think you might be out of luck. Look out for the Garmont Excursion on the used market, its same boot and came in many generations. Some like myself believ...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

So now I'm looking for an all-rounder, looking to go from A to B where a lot of different obstacles will come up and snow conditions change. Hard to predict situation in remote areas over 10 days. I don't mind not going fast at all. On flat, those easy moments can go an hour or two longer, I have h...
