Re: Gear Basket

Woods, that is a great price on the FT 62. Teleman, the price that Woods posted above is a really good price. If it's beyond your budget, maybe you could find a pair of those Fischer 88's guys were posting end of the season last year? They were getting them I 199 or 200cm. Not exactly the same, but ...

Re: When skiing was beautiful, an art, an expression of self..

...but not the weird wide legged power stance which, while effective, looks brutalist and doesn't flow. It's devoid of soul, it lacks expression, it lacks of art. Racing ruins the breed. This season, I'm going to focus on making my skiing more beautiful, more flow, more dance, more love, more sex. ...

Re: When skiing was beautiful, an art, an expression of self..

Great postcard -- the good news, of course, is that skiing is still beautiful, still an art, and still an expression of self, but it just doesn't often make postcards or the covers of ski magazines these days. It really is up to the individual to see the art in the sport, whether it is on kick-and-...

Re: Dropping a Knee Down South

You're in trouble now. Next thing you'll be on T4's and Voile Vectors!!! Lol
Thank you for sharing. I imagine it could be very difficult linking turns on gear better suited to cross country racing. It is a testament to the ability of high level cross country ski racers, to pull it off so well.

Woods,
Can't wait to see videos of Chuck Flannel ripping on the FT's.

Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

Zgadow, I bought a Discovery 80 for my son several years ago. It isn't a bad ski, it is soft, and forgiving. However my educated guess is that half your weight will compress the underfoot flat in a 189. If I remember correctly that ski was available in a ski around 200 cm, which would be the correct...

Re: another ski recommendation post...

I also agree with a bigger Ski in Tahoe. Tahoe gets deep snowfalls and the the spacing of trees just offers so much downhill skiing. I have an FAlketind 62, but it would get kicked around in challenging snow. You really need two kits in Tahoe if one is going to be a go fast trail ski. I say on this ...

Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

Al, I am in complete agreement with what happens when conditions are less than ideal. I hurt myself twice last season. I mounted some old alpine skis with a set of Vice bindings, I'll pair them with my T-4's at the ski hill when conditions are less than ideal. Most people would have learned after ge...

Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

Al, I believe what Johnny and Gareth are saying is true. Mike K did a video showing the flex on an Alpina Alaska NN, 3 pin model. That toepiece was mighty flexible. I was not impressed. However I can bend my USGI, and am very impressed what I can accomplish with my Alpina Alaska NNN. I really like t...
