Whiteface mountain parkway rollerski

I remember a discussion about it here years ago. I've never driven or skied on it, although I've been meaning to forever. I may be going upstate this summer and thought it would be neat to finally...

Rollerski up Whiteface mtn NY - where to stay?

Hi,
I'm thinking about trying to do my own "race to the castle" some time in the summer when I go upstate. Because the road opens to car traffic at 9am, I'd have to show up pretty early to have a...

No glide in cold weather

Thanks Gene. Not to rule out technique completely, but I should have mentioned that last week up in Quebec I had an opportunity to compare my skis with a similarly entry-level (Rossi Zymax)rental....

No glide in cold weather

I got a pair of Rossi Zynex skates back in 2009 to have a basic pair for the few days on snow that I have per year. I canít remember a single time that I was truly happy with the glide, despite all...

Alpina CSK/RSK boots for roller skiing

OK, got it. How did the high heel (at least it looks high compared with more recent models) feel to you? Seems it's gone the opposite way since then, what with wedges and the new no-heel ESK pro from...

Alpina CSK/RSK boots for roller skiing

No, haven't spoken to any of those folks, at least not recently. If that 2006 boot was top of the line, it has to be the TCS (with a carbon cuff). Looks solid (at least the upper doesn't appear...

Alpina CSK/RSK boots for roller skiing

Hi, I was wondering if anyone uses these boots for roller skiing. I tried them both, and while the fit was great, even with a fairly stiff cuff they didn't seem to provide a lot of ankle support....

Getting all clogged up on a downhill

Threashold questions are a little technical. I don't have a heart monitor, so don't really know. But what's interesting is that when I take a fairly short descent after a difficult climb, I don't...

Getting all clogged up on a downhill

Where I rollerski, thereís this long downhill after this same uphill (not too steep; on good days, I manage to V-2 up most of it). After coming down, I often find it difficult to go up the next hill...

Warped boot sole?

Actually, I did call Alpina to find out if the sole was convex by design. They called me back after pulling a couple of pairs and said theirs were straight. So I got rid of that pair, which is a...

Warped boot sole?

No, I got them from Amazon (and they sourced it from some other shop). Already returned that pair. Nordic Skater tends to be very expensive for anything other than roller ski parts. Although maybe...

Fanny pack for a bottle and more

Hi,

I searhced the group for ideas but most posts are quite dated and do not really cover what I have in mind.

When I roller ski, I usually carry a fanny pack that accommodates a V2 150 wheel (a...

Warped boot sole?

Just got a pair of Alpina SSK skate boots to replace my old and worn Rossi X6. Generally liked the boot but noticed it didn't want to stay close to the binding. I put the boot into the binding...

Long climbs in NJ revisited

Looks beautiful. And long. Does it require car support for descent or is it skiable the whole stretch?

Thanks,

Long climbs in NJ revisited

Thanks for your reply. Advice well taken. Will need to pick a weekend when it's not brutally hot and humid (the drive up there will rob me of the precious morning coolness).

Uphill only for endurance? (rollerskis)

I really have two questions - 1) whether I should mostly use uphill for endurance training and 2) if not, how it should be combined/spaced with flats. There's usually a question about the goal. Just...

V2 150 skate or combi for skating

I thought I'd re-post as I'd like to make the decision in the next few days.. An additional consideration is an increase in boot size - I'd like to go from 46 to 47, which looks possible on 150...

Replacing tips on roller ski poles

Hi

The question is - how to make sure the tips are properly aligned with
the handles? A ferrule just broke off completely, so I cannot tell the
exact way the metal tip was pointed. I'm afraid if I...
