I am moving to St. Louis and will be learning to telemark. I want to make the 300 vertical feet a little bit more challenging. (Yes, I typed that correctly, three hundred ). I am currently in a 97 mm Lange RS110 with just a custom foot bed. Any advice on which brands of telemark boots I should try and what I should be looking for in a solid beginner boot that will grow with me if I advance to intermediate? Also looking for recommendations for a ski to mount telemark bindings on that will be able to handle the icy and generally crappy conditions well. Same skill requirement start at beginner and advance to intermediate.
I have to buy before I leave in a couple of months. Not much out there in terms of shops or telemark equipment sales. Thanks for the advice.
