Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Traverse 78

Great review Gareth. It’s been a while since we have had one of your reviews, and it sure was nice to read and think about it. Would you mind offering a comparison to the USGI? It would just give me a frame of reference. I figure the 78 is much lighter.
Happy trails Snow Glade Farm skiers!

Re: Falketind 62 Review

Danlyewich, I made my living pouring concrete for 20 + years, so I have a cement man’s body, 5’9”, 190 ish. I used to ski 204’s, 205’s for years downhill. So, I guess I’ve always considered 188/188 as short skis. Short or long, the one thing a downhill ski needs to have is enough torsional rigidity ...

Re: Asnes quiver of two

Danylewich, I own have have skied an FT for the past couple seasons. The boot I match with this ski is an Alico Ski March.

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Ben, You are absolutely correct, no need to keep buying gear. Ben it is also true that many people have experienced fit problems with the Ski March. The stiff leather of the upper, and stiff sole would be instruments of torture if the boot didn’t fit. If you guys in Quebec keep dry powder all winter...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Nitram Interesting question, however for me the one boot I must have would be a stiff soled,Norwegian welt, three pin boot. It’s very important that you note I said for me. If I skied like Johnny skies, then I could get by on my Alaska. I really like my Alaska, they are a great boot. I guess I might...

Re: PFAS ski wax revealed, banned

I believe PFOS or PFAS, are used in many products we use today including Teflon and Gore-Tex. I am not sure if it is a valid perspective or hyperbole, but I have read these two chemicals have similar bio-deterioration rates to granite. They are calling them “for ever compounds”. There has been a maj...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

I have a Ski March and an Alaska. They is no comparison in stiffness. However the Alaska is also much lighter and more comfy than the Ski March. Although my Ski March cannot match my T4 for stiffness, I believe it is much closer to the T4 than Otis to the Alaska. I am in complete agreement with what...

Re: narrow xcd skis- to mount a riser or not- that is the question

Woods, I found your perspective interesting, as I usually do. I have the opposite perspective, but then I thought that you are probably skiing with plastic boots. Is that a correct assumption? If I was skiing my T4, I would probably prefer my 3-P Hardwire binding. For me, the 3-P cable, my Ski March...
