Re: WAX HELP, PLS!!

Hello Yvette, I will admit I am no fan of scales, I just do not like the vibration and noise. I am becoming quite appreciative of Klister, it works really well. However it is sticky and messy. My method is to have a beer or two, baby powder, a little bottle of Goo Gone, and a rag. After I complete m...

Re: Dream Trip => Whitegrass

@peterindc Skis Whitegrass a bit. I waited too late last season. I think I will target end of January, or first of February next season.

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Absolute overkill. I think a T-4 would be the maximum you would want, but in most conditions leather boots would be adequate, and fun!

Ski March boots? If so how do you like them? If not tell us about your cool new Norwegian welted boots!

Re: Asnes Ingstad users question

I don’t know what you paid, and if you believe you received good value. What I do know is that the Ingstad receives good reviews from a wide cross section of skiers. I don’t believe those scales will vibrate excessively on hard trails. You can always wax in front of the pattern for more grip when yo...

Re: Voile SB vs. Voile X2

@riel i guess there are different ways to skin a cat. In my terrain I don’t need a free pivot binding. Really if conditions warranted a plastic boot for my S-bound, I would probably reach for a different ski.
However at one time, I only had a S-112 and a T-4!

Re: Help with GEAR for newb FIRST POST

I have both Ski March boots and Coleman’s USGI skis. It’s not a bad way to start. I love the boots, and the skis are solid, but maybe a little heavier ( and a lot less expensive) than some more modern alternatives. Woods is spot on on bindings. A cable can be helpful on more challenging downhills. H...

Re: Voile SB vs. Voile X2

I don’t know if I’m helping or not, but I could easily overpower an S-112 with a 3-pin Hardwire. I don’t know where you are skiing, maybe a free pivot binding is better for long climbs? Another aspect is the boot. A 3P-HW is plenty for me to compress the bellows on a T-4 boot, and more than I need o...

Re: The Beer Thread

Joe when a man can’t express a love for his homeland without worrying about insulting someone else the problem isn’t with him. I would think that most happy people love their homeland, and learn to love the beauty of the natural world in their homeland. I’m just fortunate enough to be born in a plac...
