I know this thread doesn't really have a point, but I have been skiing for ~18 years now and for some reason I have never tried telemark skiing. I just tried it for the first time yesterday and I had a fucking blast! It brings a totally different dimension to skiing in my opinion.
you have a mad river glen icon... how have you not tried telemarking?
i usedto be into it, and my dads totally obsessed. i almost totally converted at one point, but it was just way too hard to ski park. i couldnt spin more than 3 or do more than a 270 off so i pretty much stopped
my friend tele's and we switched setups one night. i front 2d out of a box and put too much pressure on my tips while landing switch. my heels came up and i faceplanted. hilarity ensued. its fun to mess around with every so often, but ill keep my heels connected from now on(with very rare exceptions for the fun of it)
teled beofore i ever downhilled.. when i was 4-6 , the last time i did it.. this guy in college said he was a better skier then me cause he tele d so i rented a pair and showed him what the fuck was up!
I read "the wife with tele. She has a unique flow"
but yea, tele is where it's at. Absolute best feeling in pow. when I was younger I used to hit up the ski hills just in my cross country setup before I could afford anything else. got me good at tele real fast, then soon as I was in a heavier actual tele setup it was clutch
