Re: When to Drop a Knee

But, in the end, I telemark more because it is fun and the feeling that the movement gives, e.g., like a dance, than because of any technical advantage it may give. Telemark equipment and the telemark turn allow for complete skiing: Near perfect continuity between flats, uphills and downhills. Some...

I'm on my way to the Laurentians for xmas, supposed to be even colder ther...
