Re: Wider dh focused ski reco, stinx, piste etc.

Here is some comparables from Powder7, used the ski sizing tool, for 5’4”, powder ski, and cheap, etc. Looks Iike your in the ballpark. For powder I would go with a modern ski. I tried my 10YO Dynastar Legend’s (all mountain) in powder, they are too stiff and heavy for leather boots. I picked up som...

Re: Kicker skins without proprietary attachment point available in U.S.?

If you’re handy with tools and you don’t mind modifying your ski. You can cut / epoxy a slot for a Fischer Easy skin. I used a small brass screw, and drilled a hole in the plastic attachment point of the skin to hold it. I would post a picture but I can get the site to take it.

Re: Rossignol BlackOps Alpineer — Anyone know anything about these skis?

Update - finally got some skins put together for the Alpineers, fleabay Accension skins and Colltex Racefix bungee for the tips, from Skimo. I’m wondering if I need to wax the skins. I had trouble with the SB98s scales loading up with sticky snow when the temp went from 22f to 38f in a few hours the...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Well after looking forward to skiing local the SnoTel was saying go higher, did the 45 min drive to Winter Park and found a trail I’ve skied in the past had close to 2’ and no one had touched it yet. So fresh pow to Yo-Yo on. Next time I’ll bring the powder skis. Just not enough float from the sB-98...

Re: Posting photos

Bostonian Hi, If you are using an Apple phone to take a picture it will be in the wrong format, especially if it is a “Live” photo. I.e. - the dot in a circle in a hashed circle, if it’s yellow it’s on. Tap to turn off in the photo app or when you edit the photo you have taken, I’ve sometimes had t...

Re: DEEP Snow Touring Ski

The people of the Altai use long, fat, skin covered skis to hunt in deep snow.

Re: Help needed for ski choice for solo pulka trip West-Greenland

Just another point…. SKI LENGTH IS DETERMINED BY YOUR WEIGHT. Don’t let anyone (sales person) tell you need a ski longer than what your weight determines. If it is longer for a heavier weight you won’t be able to set the grip zone under your foot as you shift your weight from one ski to the other. I...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Thank you @Tom M for the Google Earth tutorial on YouTube. I got my Skin Track route for this year all ready to go. Wish Goog had a layer with Topo lines.

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Looks like our local independent Nordic ski rental/store got their shipments in…. They even have the Rossi explore, and the Fischer OTX 88 (drooling).
