I just posted this on the main wall but thought I'd throw it on the Lady Gabber as well.
Hey, so I'm writing a paper cross referencing telemark skiing and my training in modern dance on a cultural, physical, and psychological level for my movement in culture class. If you've ever telemark skied, even just tried it, please answer these questions either bellow or in my inbox. Thanks so much!
When did you begin telemark skiing and why?
Where do you ski?
What was your learning curve like? Amount of time to feel comfortable? Struggles you may have come upon?
Have you had any injuries or life threatening experience while telemark skiing, whether touring or at a resort?
What would you define telemark skiing culture as and how does it differ from the rest of the skiing culture?
Have you ever participated in freestyle skiing or competitive racing on telemark skis and what was that experience like?
Feel free to explain anything else you wish about your experience as a telemark skier, good or bad. Personal stories are welcome or deeper insights as to what being a skier in general means to you and your lifestyle.
