I've been out a couple times now on my new Telemark set up trying something new after being an alpine skier forever. I don't have anyone to Tele with so I'm stuck to youtube videos and forums. Just after two days I'm pretty comfortable with the turn and the balance. From what i'm hearing that uphill ski or bend leg you want to put pressure (drive it)? I'm sure my lunges aren't very low being a beginner so I try to be dramatic about it. I find my downhill ski either out front or i'm leaning back with pressure on my calf on that downhill boot. Should I be trying to still lean forward with that downhill ski?
I have NTN Freeride bindings, they feel really solid (I'm not even worried at this point on how stiff, but I can see with experience demanding it) and Crispi Shiver boots. Resort skiing on groomed hills.
After two days out, you granola skiers get an awesome workout and alpine now sounds boring...can't believe I said that.
