/ Reusing skins from narrower skis
Should be fine, it might be a slight issue on steep icy traverses though.
I think you'll struggle like hell! Bin them and get some new ones. Cut them so just the metal edges show.
I don't know a lot about skins and skis but a guide in Canmore told me the same as Jon. Just have the edges showing anything else, bin them.
Try them and see how they work?
Yeah, will be able to give them a quick so at the side of a piste but not really a proper test before embarking on the 2 day tour I have planned.
I could cut the old skins down the middle to cover the edges but that's gonna be a pain in the arse taking them on and off.
