Re: I'm concerned the guy at the gear store mis-sized my wife

It depends on the ski and her weight. Many waxless beginner style skis are mid-length, being considerably shorter than the traditional lengths. At 155lbs she would (barely) fit the 169cm women's Fischer My Desire model of skis. It would seem like a better fit would be the 174cm. http://www.llbean.co...

25 Year Old Skis and a 30 Year Old Hat

Skied the ski trails today, Underdown rec Area. While the reports said the snow cover was adequate I decided to save my Fischers for better depth and instead pulled out an old pair of Karhu Chases. I don't think I'd skied them for almost a decade. And, in keeping with the theme, I dug around in our ...

Badger State Games Cancelation

Races have been cancelled due to low snow. Personally I think this is ridiculous. I've skied BSG in much worse conditions than are at 9 Mile now.

Anyone Skiing Yet?

I think we might be screwed (here, in the midwest).

Re: Airlines and Ski Wax

I packed some glide waxes, a small hand drill for mounting bindings and a wax iron last week on a trip to Maryland in a checked bag. It was searched after it went through the xray. But other than that there was no problem.

Re: Back country skis advice

They've been on sale occasionally at mountaingear.com. http://marquette-backcountry.com/shop/ski/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; My dad was an avid ski hunter when he was younger.

Re: Scratched kick zone on my waxless ski

Unless its through the base and into the core I wouldn't fill them in. As has been said, since its in the kick zone it will be covered in kick wax anyway and that shouldn't come in contact very often while gliding. You might want to try a light sanding if there are ridges at the sides of the gouge b...

Re: More snow! Mixed feelings!

Great movie there, Nerd. Who'd have thought back in mid-January that mid-April would look like this.
