Hi y'all!

I'm looking for a pair of foot-mittens to try out the wondrous sport of telemark. I've been skiing alpine since I was knee-high - racing, teaching, touring and whatnot - and just recently, a killer deal on a pair of teles has brought about "the first day of the rest of my life", wintersport-wise. All I'd need to get going now is a good old pair of 75mm boots (looking to spend ideally 100$ for a decent pair; can go up to 200$ or even 300$ if they are particularly swell). (Well, that and my skier-friends' patience as I slow them all down next outing trying to learn :) )

I'm in Montréal, H2S 2R8, and would love to deal locally, but if you can take good pictures and ship quickly, I'm open "international business".

Cheers,

Philippe

There's a telemark saying in English: "Free your heels and your mind will follow." I used google to translate this into modern French for our Montreal and Mont Tremblant brethren: "Libérez les talons puis les couilles se gèleront". Welcome, Philippe, to the world of tele!

If you want good leather, Ebay UK is selling Alico military spec boots for under £20. Even with shipping, it will probably be max $100 CDN. Several here have bought them.

That translation is right on!

Thanks for the replies; found a pair of brand new Scarpa T1's on Kijiji for 150$! Going to try them out tomorrow in Jay Peak with the setup I found on the same site: Cham HM 87's with Voile Switchback X2's; hardly used, 300$ for all!

Quite excited to go freeze those balls, as the saying goes.

Safe to say: you've got a new addict! Helps to start on a powder day... by the end of the day, I was launching off cliffs and feeling at ease in moguls!
