Re: New to Telemark, Advice Please?

NTN is closer to Alpine as 3-pin is closer to Nordic, but NTN (or Tech -toe variations) are where you will want to be. Used boots are probably the most difficult thing to get, then NTN binding, though someone somewhere will be passing on a pair. Try 'earn your turns' website. Skis, used Alpine skis ...

Re: Brilliant Telemark Event - 12 - 24 Jan 2019 France

It is £900 for Civilians, you have to pay all by 22 November. (I have still to pay, but will be doing so very soon). Looking forward to another great event- my technique has moved on (and up) so hoping to make the British Championship races this year.

Re: Brilliant Telemark Event - 12 - 24 Jan 2019 France

I went this year, largely for the instruction, which was very good. Racing (in any sport) was never really my thing, though I have to admit I am starting to enjoy it and doing more. We had lots of fresh snow - so spent more time enjoying ourselves than practicing racing. Had a great time, made some ...

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Tempting lines...not on Telemo kit! Will take ScottyBobs next year and try some of the easier lines.
You are about 10k from civilisation, so has a wilderness feel out there, definitely lifts the spirits.

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Not racing, but did my last tour of the season in Scotland. Finally, I hope, getting the feel of my Telemo set up. I think I now have the binding well set up, a useful level of spring from the start, but still a smooth progression to a low stance. The skis have an unusual flex, soft ends and stiff m...

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

It would be great get a telemark team from Scotland, unfortunately at present I am the only Telemark Skimo racer, ( or the number one tele Skimo racer, as I like to say!). Do you have any competition for this title in Sweden? Don’t worry, if I do make it, your title will be safe!!
Cheers Mark

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Wow! Serious stuff!! Did not see any photos of you ripping a few tele turns, obviously the Photographer has not heart!!! Is there much difficult climbing in the Ski Tour race? Glad to hear the tele kit all worked well, especially with the F1s. Mine are the Race model (not carbon cuff) with no tongue...

Re: Scales vs. Kicker-Skins

I have short, about 20cm, from the end trimming from my skins used as kickers, they work ok, as long as not too icy or steep. Surprisingly they stay put just with the glue.

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Bjorn,
Just looked up the Keb Classic - would love to have a go at that one day. Are you doing the 'Alpine' or Ski-touring' course.
Great to see a skimo style event that allows tele kit.
Look forward to hearing how you do. Best of luck.
