    Maybe not so much for going DH but for hunting I seen a vid where the hunters were easily able to run down a deer in a meter of snow, the deer couldn't move and these guys could just walk up and slit its throat

    goddamn that is a powerful image. How long are those things? They look giant, different from what the Russian guy is making.

    Not sure if it's in that clip I linked but in the "Happy People" doc one of the trappers talks about how they make a couple pairs for various times in the season, the shortest ones are for late fall because apparently the moss grows so thick and spongey there that it's just easier to get around on skis... There are a few more clips of him skiin' around though and nothing he's on is very long, maybe like 180 max. Definitely wide though. Just narrow enough to not be annoying.

    There's also these guys for a different take on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDY-aUru_bs

    Thought I had everything I needed for this quarantine but what I'd give for a straight-grained log and a couple of sturdy cauldrons...
