Re: How was your season?

Sixteen days touring, 17 days lift served skiing and 2 skimo races. Not a single day with alpine, or ice climbing. A good season I usually get approx 50 days of skiing and 5-6 days of alpine/ice climbing. Workload was the limitation factor this season. Snow conditions mostly sucked, alternating temp...

Re: Tele vs parallel.

Harris, I dont think we have failed to read your post - there is just different opinions on what a carved turn is. It can be a single ski turn, but it is usually more efficient using two legs/skis instead of one. I cant help it, but what you are describing reminds of how we skied in alpine racing in...

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 ;)
