Hope this helps:

1 - No. The S Bounds will not handle 20 degrees. Maybe 10-12 before you need to use the edge. The Objectives might be able to get up over 15. These are really rough guesses, I...

I also tried the S Bounds with a couple different binding setups.

I started off with 3 pins just flat mounted on the ski. That was fine.

I then got curious about how these might be with NNN-BC...

Some more experiences from the S Bounds:

Those skis actually climb and glide pretty good as far as waxless skis go. There are better ones (like the ones in the OP) but they suffer from (lack of) glide. Those feel like XC race skis...

That's one thing I'm always looking for even with a seasonal place. If I can't use it to go ski during the winter, I might as well just use a hotel and forget the whole deal. I also don't want to...

Yeah - our influence has changed their perspective as well, although someplace like Japan where they have very little land able to be developed, the situations tend to be extreme to us.

During the winter, I'd bet that's the case, but I was thinking about summer use and I bet it's the opposite. It may force you to run your AC more to dry the air more inside.

TCD - care to share any details on your ~20yr old build? Foundation, heat sources, insulation, climate, costs?

Ooof - that animation at 4:10 hurts.



I find this whole process very interesting, but at some point we have to be real about this prospect. Looking at NY we...

There's tradeoffs for everything. I feel like you kind of concede a lot for looks with a log cabin.

I mean, I much prefer the look of timber frame or log, but in terms of efficiency and cost...

I forgot about Lincoln Logs. They have been around forever. I feel like they were one of the first modular kit cabins around NY.

That HEX seems pretty necessary. Even if it only recovers 70% of what exits, that's significantly better than just a leaky house. Some claim to be up 90% efficient. That seems optimistic to me for...
