Re: How was your season?

It sounds like we all had the same kind of weather this year. It's been like that a few years up here, I hope it's not the new normal. After YEARS of X-Country only skiing it felt HOLY HELL GOOD to be skiing back down hills again CC skiing is a lot of fun but making turns is a different kind thrill ...

How was your season?

Here is a thread that we all can have some input. What were highlights, breakthroughs or whatever. My season was short and sweet. Between being out of town and crappy early season conditions I didn't start skiing until early January. The conditions were very variable, we got big dumps for the weeken...

Re: Tele vs parallel.

very knowingly tripped fandango on a subject that I thought would illicit more response. Why? Why would I instigate? Because there are a lot of Tele Tip voyeurs out there who never seem to engage and add to the point of this project. Over a thousand people have dipped in to this post but yet an ove...

Re: Ski Movies

The main thing that I'm seeing is that he is carving across the fall line as opposed to skidding across it on unweighted skis. When I do those type turns my skis roll from edge to edge without skiiding and without being unweighted. The skis are doing all the work and I'm just steering. Anyway there'...

Re: Tele vs parallel.

Thanks Bjorn.

Harris I think are differences are in how we think of a carved turn. You think the ski must be bowed to the limit for a good carved turn, this may be important for racing but is not what I am concerned with.

Re: Tele vs parallel.

The turns the guy in that last video is carving don't look miserable to me and they are far from lethargic, contrary to your earlier post. That is the point I was making. Can a tele skier keep up with an alpine skier in a race situation? No. But that doesn't mean they don't work.

Re: Ski Movies



Woods, this is a good video of the type of turns I was talking about above. Notice how he transitions before turning not during it.

Re: Tele vs parallel.

I don't know what technical aspect of the turn you are specifically talking about, but I was doing short radius carved turns with my body being almost parallel to the snow while still holding an edge. I haven't done turns like that that since then due to fatter skis and only skiing off piste on powd...
