Re: How Do You Ski Downhill?

@Stephen The last paragraph is excellent advice. I think it’s the essence of getting better. Practice making the right motions, to develop muscle memory. Take it steeper to find where your technique is challenged.

Re: Mea Culpa: bought a pair of...

Stephen I’m not in the least surprised you caught me on that! ;) At Musk Ox, thank you that’s very kind. Certainly the Fjords offer great views, and some tasty morsels swimming around?

Those are coho salmon, Rod. They will be 8-10 lbs by fall. They are stocked in the Great Lakes.

Re: Mea Culpa: bought a pair of...

Rod were scales a requirement? Just saying, I can “control” my 210 Gamme on some tight terrain on firm. If it’s breaking through, and the snow is heavy or crusty, well that’s a different story, but on hard glacier it’s fun. Sometimes it’s fun in a “aren’t you ever going to grow up manner”, but it’s ...

Anyone with Experience Skiing Summitcone Scales?

I skied a Summitcone Pariah this year at the ski hill and I really liked it. While I don’t really like scales for low angle skiing, I think they are really useful where full skins are required. In the East, just because you pulled skins, doesn’t mean traverses aren’t required. While wax would work w...

Re: Switchback rods for a 27 shell?

Lhartley Voile has great service, they are very knowledgeable and will help in anyway they they are able. The blue cartridge bindings are they old style Hardwires, which are no longer made. Some guys really like that binding. The red cartridges are on a 3-pin Hardwire. Typically that binding has bl...
