I got some points while skiing this day from a highly skilled Tele skier. Overall much better than the last time, a few years ago, that I skied with him. The Rossi Alpineers skied much better than the last time with SB98’s.

Looking good to me, just learning myself. Can you tell me what camera and mount you're using?

Nice "B" tele. Did you teach yourself that intentionally, or was it a byproduct of skiing with one pole?

About a week ago I had a pole malfunction and had to ski out with only one pole. When thinking about how I would ski the remaining hill I decided B tele was the way to do it. It worked great and made me wonder if Telehiro came up with the technique because he does so much filming and skiing with one pole.

I’ve been watching Telehiro videos but I hadn't really practiced the B Tele in the past because I’m normally on lower angle (green run) type hiking trails and don’t need to do that to slow down. But once we moved over to the blue runs it was an “oh shit” moment and I just started doing it. And it worked! It was easier to only have to think about 2 movements. I’ve tried the one pole in the past then went to a chest and backpack mount, it was to hard to maintain balance on uneven terrain. But it turned out to be easier on the groomers. @Lhartley I had a GoPro bar mount and it workes on my ski pole. Next time I’ll need to extend it to its full 150cm length to get more in the frame. In the past I’ve used a GoPro 11 Mini, but I’ve had so much trouble with it locking up, I bought a used DJI Action 3. So far it’s worked fine.

Funny thing is in all the years I've been using that form I only used it on slopes where I didn't need to slow down. They were smooth carved turns without much flexing of the skis. After watching his vids and reading some of the commentary I've been using it in a variety of ways and situations.
