Cool RottingJohnny! Yellow klister is gross, but sometimes good skiing...If it keeps dumping, and puts enough on the ground to soak up the deep puddles, I will go out and train, ie. break trail, then do a bunch of laps in my Salomon 88's. Will you be at the Tannebaum race on the 16th? Maybe see you there!

Yeah. . . BITCHEN ski area. . . and ya gotta love lawless Montana. . . you can ski really fast without anybody gettin' pissy with you. Hell, on Mammoth, if you skied even as fast as BigMtn's Patrolmen, you'd end up in Bridgeport. (county jail).

I will say, I'm skeezin in a helmet, now, because of it!

Suckafish near Whitefish. . . FOR SURE!

I have a housesitter/caretaker at my place in Shasta. . . I just HAD to ski at home this winter. . . I really missed this place!

Dig this, JWerd, our NordicCenter allows DOGS. . . 2/3 of what they groom (ginzu) is open for doggies. . . it's RAD! Not that I have a doggie anymore, but it's still a rad trail system. . . and Skadi and I were usually the only ones there, anyway!

I just threw away a sh!tpile of old klister. I'm soo done with that sh!t.
There's better things to do on klister days. I'll let ya know when I find one.

The one gud thing about klister?
It fools you into thinking you don't have a 'late' kick.

I prefer a waxless pattern over klister. I've got a tube. It has exactly one sessions worth of glue missing and that's it.

Like I said. . . you just have to know how to apply the stuff. . . too many people use WAY TOO MUCH OF IT. . . it should be so thin, it's almost invisible!

It should never squirt out and over your sidewalls. . . NEVER!

But. . . I will admit. . . skeezin on Mt Shasta for years and years gave me plenty of time to get really good at using klisters. . . dood. . . the snow falls RED KLISTER down there!
