general stoke and answering the question: why tele?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

This is some legit tele-skiing, right down to the dirtbag van road-tripping.  Jake Sackson kills it:

I could have tacked this on to an old tele thread, but I figured WTH.

 

"Telemark's just more fun."

I've tried it, long ago when my little high school bump had some tele gear in the rental fleet and instructors got free rentals.  I can see the novelty of it.  If I skied a lot more I'd probably get a tele set up to liven things up a bit here and there.

Great link. So much for, "Tele skiers only look good on groomers".

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I thought that clip showed great skiing.

Definitely rippers.  But how do they get a veggie burner all the way up the Alcan?

'half a binding, half a brain' probably explains the math lapse. :) I used that excuse for years.

I skied 30 years on tele but haven't been on them in three or four years. Nice footage.
