Re: 10 day snow accumulation forecast

I am attaching a photo showing the accumulation over the next 10 days over most of the US and Canada. Most of Alaska is cropped. I thought this was a pretty cool map. It starts at current time, you can click it forward in 6 hour increments until you get to a 10 day accumulation forecast. Al, Pennsyl...

Re: FT62 196

The real question for Martin is, since it is longer, is the 196 stiffer? Does it offer better deep snow touring performance? So Martin, I guess all we can hope for is that you get a big dump of soft powder. That way you will be able to answer. Cheers! Hi Fish, Should get the answer to your question...

Re: Fischer Powerlight Review

Gamme doesn’t fit the track well. I skied some more crude tracks in softer snow recently with the Gamme. I have a feeling those were wider than normal. My local trails, get skied, biked, snow shoed, and boot packed. Gamme tracks pretty well on those hard uneven surfaces. It handles soft snow well al...

Re: FT 62

Al, i think I would really enjoy my FT 62 on your PA terrain, but the Alaska photos I see aren’t skiing logging roads in the woods. My suspicion is that skiing Alaska is more alpine, tougher snow. I think a beefier ski and boot combination is a better way to go in tougher conditions. Bottom line is ...

Re: Combat NATO or Gamme 54, same same?

Ben, I lost my slim cover this week. It may be snowing 100 miles north of me, I need to check the weather. Laurence, I would trail ski with a fat, rockered ski at 187 cm, because I could handle it it easier on a hiking trail that runs side hill for many miles. I would expect snow to be difficult. So...

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, a...
