Re: Style

I think it shows a good example of staying centered over his skis as his body is not getting thrown around at all. He is charging hard and staying tight to the fall line doing little to control speed. I think his fore /aft weight distribution is pretty even. He's definitely not front ski heavy. His ...

This was from last weekend at Belleayre Mountain in the Catskills. We saw a few other telemarkers anyone else skiing there?

The last time I skied Belleayre was in 1969. We had some races there (alpine) when I was in H.S.
So I guess you're an East Coast guy. Are you from NY?

Re: What is the one thing that will cut your ski day short?

Beer Your jokes are falling flat today. ;) I woulda went with "jock itch" The things that have sent me home early are wind, bad conditions, and poor visibility, especially when you have all three at the same time. The last few seasons it's been foot pain, but I think that's behind me now. I got a b...

Re: Ski Recommendations for Multi-Day Winter Camping Trips in Ontario

Portage trails are not ski trails and may be too narrow to maneuver on skis. Unless you're familiar with the portages and know what to expect you may be better off switching to snowshoes for the ports. Portages are typically a small fraction of your total mileage so you may want to pick your gear fo...

Re: Strava

I like it for the information. How far, how much vertical, average speed and maximum speed. It also lets me keep track of days skied and mileage and elevation gains for the season. It comes in just as handy for hiking, biking and boating. I've also used the map while hiking to orient myself or find ...

Re: Technique feedback thread - post a video.

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.

Re: Style

What I got out of his videos is to keep your skis weighted throughout the turn and skiing with both skis equally. Agreed that this is actually the only thing that really matters. How to get this done is subtilely different depending on conditions, speed, ski flex, boot stiffness, binding activity, ...

Re: Technique feedback thread - post a video.

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. https://youtu.be/ouk-tPsNx8Q?si=W6iIrKOaKB1gR8OB Nice "B" tele. Did you tea...
