Recently I used a scraper at someones house. It still had the price tag sticker/item description tag on it. I couldn't stand it. So at the end i scraped that off using the other scraper( with tag also) then switched. Two clean scrapers to start the.next session. Even Martha would approve.
What does Norm know about scrapers?
I don't know, but Steve Thomas the former host was an avid skier and gear head.
This from 2001:
"My big break came when I got into a pair of Strolz boots with a 3-degree cant. They probably have 100 hours of bootfitting in them. I don't care what they cost. They changed my life. I also tune all my skis. All skiers should learn how to do it. I'm even fanatical about pole length and weight, the grip, the gloves, all of it. This is a gear-intensive sport¿you have to invest in it."
Last year I heard a little about Lyndsey's ski tech. The guy in this shop knew him and had a photo from him of Lindseys 85 pair of Heads that needed prepping for this season. Since we were discussing waxing at the time, he told us Lindsey's tech is somewhat fanatical about his scrapers.
Carries 32 of them. Uses one edge per ski scraping then switches so he's always using a sharp edge. Yeah, they were clean. He had a photo of his kit with the scrapers all lined up.
