Re: A humbling day

There are just some conditions that suck to tele. Telemark skiers have been plying our trade for a long time now, and if there were secrets they would've been long ago revealed. Some of the less than great conditions can be mitigated by using the right gear for the job but only to a point. And if yo...

New School vs Old School blather. It is just skiing.

I believe this pretty much nails it and explains all there is to know, and if patient there is some excellent tele skiing at the end.

This is all Wooderson's fault.

My quiver is basically newish K2 Pinnacle 95s for usual slop, newish Praxis Protest pure deep wet skis, and 15 year old second hand 165 Volkl P60 junior race skis, which worked "Meh." Needing a new set of boards for bullet-proof groom I've been shopping and Wooderson inadvertently steered ...

Re: It doesn't get much better conditions for chute skiing than this.

anemic would say these guys are skiing old school. I'd say otherwise. Pretty badass telemark skiing in my book. Makes me yearn for corn. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDjqhDlfXWI This was badass. Reminds me of skiing New Hampshire, except less people. He picks a nice mellow line at the end, my ki...

Re: It doesn't get much better conditions for chute skiing than this.

Let's find those guys and ski with 'em Harris!!! That looks like a fun crowd in a fun spot. Actually this would be an even better trip. (hint, wait for the 1:40 mark). And being an aircraft mechanic, what a thrill to ride in a total piece of shit, leaking, Cold War circa Russian ex military helicop...

Hell yeah. Just gotta catch a flight over to Slovenia! It actually looks a lot like skiing Pike's Peak's U-Notch in the spring, something I've always wanted to send.

Re: For a fistful of turns.

I am a two track alpine skier owing to what OGs like you & me call the new skis, because we are 50 (Stenmark, Mahre bros were the models). I brought 'new ski two track' with me over to my tele habit. I love tele. I never walk away from the ski hill thinking, man I wish I had been on my alpine g...
