I would like to consider myself intermediate downhill skier. I have definitely picked up some pointers on this website and wish I found the fourms during last year's ski season. Only thing i think I need more work on is using my edges and getting away from the occasional snow plow........
On to my questions.. Ive read up alot on telemark and really think I want to pick it up this season. How difficult is the learning curve, given my current level of experience? I live in Central/Upstate NY, is there any certified and/or experienced telemark instructors in my area? Should I expect that the local ski slopes near me would even offer rentals while I try it out?
I also just bought new downhill skis and was thinking of putting telemark bindings on my old (3 year old) Atomic skis. Would those work to break into the sport? Dont know the ski sizes and unable to measure while im in Afghanistan :)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
