I just switched over this season and i'll be riding on Foils with Bomber binders(bombertele.com), and i'm looking for some new boots. Anyone have anything cheap to get me set up untill I have the money to buy good ones?

i recently started to telemark ski in addition to alpine. its just really fun. not that i am bored with alpine skiing but with tele it adds a whole new aspect to skiing and gives you something to work at. i picked it up last season and im going to continue doing it because i like the challenge. it helps you become a better skier by learning how to do all different kinds of things.

i honestly feel there is no reason for "freestyle teleing". you just ski it like an alpine when doing tricks anyways (besides switch landing..). im definitly for teleing, just not freestyle teleing. theres just no point...im gonnna get flamed so hard for this...
=================================================== You got beef!? I got vegetable!
Bombers are the shit. As are three pin hardwires. Just get the stiffest boots you can afford. T1's are a decent starting point, they can handle pretty much anything. And for whoever posted those boots up there, those are AT boots, not tele.
^same for me, why ski alpin in park when I ski tele everywhere else. Ive been skiing Telemark exclusively for the last 5 seasons they only thing im jealous of is the easy-mode switch landings on alpin skis.... Back to the original question, i would go for something like the Scarpa T1 or Garmont Ener-g.
i gotta question, i dont tele or anything, just curious...
if u tele and u ski park and u wat to mount ur bindings forward, lets say u mount-2 from center, when u turn and stuff wouldnt it be like your skis are mounted a lot more forward, like +2? idk if that makes sense but haha you know
tele skis are made for touring and backcountry. If your using them for the park and shit you just a moron. I like AT better for even touring since you dont have to slog around with the tele springs and you can still have the stability and energy transfet of alpine bindings
Go to telemarktips.com you will have the best chance to find something cheap there.
Just because company's market tele specific skis does not mean a telemark skier has to ski on those sticks. Tele skis have taken the same transition that alpine skis have. They have become wider, float better and carve better then there skiny straight cousins. Most tele skis are made on the same mold as alpine skis. The tele market isn't large enough for the manufacturers to have competely different designs. Example Rossignol Sickbird same ski as Rossignol BC wrs, Volkl T-Rock same ski as Karma, -1 layer of metal.
