Re: Off topic threads...

Is there someone whose job it is to keep an eye on such things as this and make some decisions? Sorry if I should already know. Men whom enjoy liberty should be able to restrain their behavior, and when they temporarily forget their boundaries a gentle reminder from the group is all they should nee...

Re: Canadian Ski Marathon

No we aren’t a gardening forum. Best wishes to you I mean best wishes, I hope the things you don’t like don’t out weigh what brings you here, because you add to the site.
For me a thread about the Canadian Ski Marathon also adds to the site.

Re: Learning to turn with Gammes

I tkarhu You sure picked a heck of a ski to learn to Telemark on, but you also have a very solid idea of the technique you are trying to learn and emulate based upon the material you have put together in this excellent post. I still can’t think of a much harder way to learn the Telemark turn, howeve...

Re: Nnn-BC trail skiing on Gamme

DG99 This year has been tough for snow, it’s only my third weekend of skiing. My first weekend was snow and oak leaves, which really requires knowledge of where the high rocks are. While hikers do post hole, at 8” they just compacted the snow. It’s a multi use trail, this snow I think only one othe...

Re: Canadian Ski Marathon

What does the CSM or the Birkebeiner have to do with telemarking? Going a long ways on XC trails is great! Or even a short ways! Camping is great! So is getting a room! But none of the above really have anything to do with telemarking. Why do topics like this come up here? Screen Shot 2023-01-30 at...

Nnn-BC trail skiing on Gamme

There was a day I pointed them downhill on steep $h-t, but now I’m a 61 year old guy just trying to have fun on skis. I blame this site for putting me on skinny skis and Alaska. Well I was out today, and it was epic. As epic as hiking trails on glacial moraines can be, any way. We had 8” about 10 da...

Re: Is there a list of all the XCD and Versatile skis and their traits?

First Jeff here’s the list, it is pretty dated today.: https://web.archive.org/web/20151002150932/http://home.comcast.net/~pinnah/DirtbagPinner/bc-skis.html I think you could break this down to less categories for your purposes. I also am getting ready to go skiing so I will say there are skis w/o s...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

stilltryin congratulations to your wife on both her packing skills and her ingenuity! Is that rope or bungee? You made me check to see if I had parachord in my pack. Roelant that looks like interesting terrain. I don’t think a Dane could ski there. As a matter of fact I am getting the idea Sverdrup...
