comment ski damaged from sticks, leaves, soil, etc?
Thanks for the advice! I should have mentioned that I have waxless skis, but you've covered all the bases already ;)

comment How to warm up your cold toes and fingers?
How do you figure "wasting a lot"? You have to breathe, so you're actually making use of what would otherwise be "wasted" (breathed-out) warmth.

comment Do cross-country skis need to be broken-in?
Thanks for the answer. Could older skis also have more grip because the curvature in the middle section is reduced?

Thanks for the suggestions! 1. and 3. sound good, but 2. might be a bit too much.

Exactly the same comment I made to the original answer. How annoying that the migration wasn't complete

comment Are folding poles suitable for cross-country skiing?
Funny you should mention it, I asked this question too: outdoors.stackexchange.com/q/3678/2064 Unfortunately the migration to this site deleted the previous answers (but they weren't a perfect solution anyway).

That's a good point about double polling. As for the length, I have seen collapsible poles (also from BD) that extend up to 155cm, thought that's still too short for the tallest skiers. And I know little of the reliability, especially when extended to full length.

Cool, do you know which edition of popular mechanics it was in (month, year)?
