Deals at Vintage Ski World

Post by blogger | August 26, 2009      

I should give a shout out to Vintage Ski World. They sell a ton of stuff to folks coming from our various WildSnow backcountry skiing information links. Christmas shop for that backcountry skier in your life! Or whatever the occasion, check them out.

Our history goes back a long ways, with yours truly having set up their first e-commerce site, and with friend and owner Richard Allen being my mentor when I first started collecting ski gear and started the WildSnow museum of backcountry skiing. Richard’s main advice to me was to figure out some kind of focus when it came to collecting ski gear, so I picked randonnee AT ski touring bindings as the subject, and subsequently developed what as far as I know is the most extensive collection in existence. It’s been fun to do this, and having the collection has been immensely valuable for informing my writing about ski bindings.

    Cloudveil is out of stock of medium sized Koven Pant…Go figure! Any other suggestions for a touring pant?

    I’m pretty happy with the Patagonia Alpine Guide pants. You might like them too.

    Vintage Dynafit boot parts
    I need tongues for my old boots. The tongues were flimsy and disintegrated.

    Roy, I’m working on my remote viewing skills but am having trouble (grin). You want to let us know what boots you need parts for? Perhaps send a photo over via the contact link above. Thanks, Lou

    I need boot tongues

    I can use ANY Dynafit boot ‘ tongues ‘ ; the part that opens over the lacing.

    I have a pair of size 9 1/2 about 1999 tourlite tech boots that have tongues, clasps and latches that are made of ‘putty’ and break into small bits when barely stressed. I have kept them glued and wired together but it is useless.

    Roy, I’d like to help you. Could you use some tongues from other boots? For example, do you have access to a source of older alpine boots? Sometimes you can just remove the tongue from an alpine boot and do some cutting on it to make it attach to the Dynafit boot, then heat it up and mold to the boot. I’ve done it. Where are you located? I might have some old generic tongues I could mail to you.

    Considering all that, I would encourage you to evaluate your use of 15+ year old ski boots. If the tires on your car are that old, shut my mouth. If not, perhaps I have a point (grin)?

    ‘best, Lou
