Re: Tele vs parallel.

A good p-turn is very much a single ski turn, it only appears to be a 2 ski turn because the inside ski is being used to stabilize, but the weight is ideally exclusively on the downhill ski in order to get it to bow to its radius limit. That is how they (all skis) are designed to work. That sounds ...

Re: 3-pin Racing

Not much of a race report this time, it had been severe storm in the area with rain during the last week, followed by cold days and nights leading to terrible conditions with ice shielded crust and crud. In the morning there was severe flatlight, I even falled when almost standing still in piste - d...

Re: Tele vs parallel.

Mix the turns all the time, t-turn, p-turn or m-turn., even from turn to turn. I give up, what's an m-turn? Monoturn, it is a teleturn where you dont change the lead ski, eg, you make teleturns with the same leg/ski in front - despite turning left or right. It is a good way to balance in on skis an...

Re: Just throwing this out there...

The race form should highlight the advantages of the sport. Tele racing in its current form combines downhill, ski jumping and cross-country As I see it, telemarks advantage is the easy combination and esy transition between downhill, uphill and cross-country (either classic or skate). In skimo raci...

Re: 3-pin Racing

Sitting on the train to the last skimo race of the season. Going to be a 3400 feet track off-piste with booting section - but no crampon or rapelling moments. This is also the only race I will perform with the Transalp/LiteDogz set-up. For next season I will go for a TTS set-up on that ski, simply b...

Re: Just throwing this out there...

I can agree that the current tele racing favors NTN and four buckle boots, nonetheless it seems funny.

To favor more classic tele gear, just make the skating section longer. If it is long enough it will even favor NNN-bindings and skis.

Re: Tele vs parallel.

Mix the turns all the time, t-turn, p-turn or m-turn., even from turn to turn. Also mix short and long turns, as well as carving. My friends usually keeps a distance when skiing behind me, they never knows what happens next ;)

Tips n’ tricks 2 - poor mans free pivot binding

The second tip is a classic from the good old days of the original TelemarkTips. By using a strap to hold the the heel lever in a looser uphill mode, you get considerable less spring resistance for easier climbing. Did this with great success with Riva bindings, just had to be careful when doing kic...

Tips n’ tricks - skimo-like backpack ski attachments

Thought I would share some tips for BC skiing. First is homemade skimo-like attachments for backpacks. The ability to put the skis on and off the backpack without removing it, is a huge time saver. For those not familiar with these systems, look at these videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uwtC...
