..When done....I always am amazed when looking back at the mono marks.....Which is frowned on by modern Alpine telemarkers. The meaning of that is you have a tight stance not the (parallel wide spaced legs) of todays telemarkers...(again where do they learn this parallel type stuff?)....Easy, at Alpine areas and PSIA instructors...TM
Monomark is the way to go, well said. Almost forgot the feeling, thanks for reminding me
Well after watching NATOs "The Telemark Movie" which was filmed in the mid 80s it struck me that it is where I might have learned to ski with an open stance. It was obvious in the film that the open stance has been around a long time. I never took a PSIA lesson or spent much time at a resort.

A monomark I believe is making turns in the tele position without changing the lead ski, not leaving a single track in the snow.

Monomark means one track to me....And the best are the narrowest...yesterday many were made and the skinniest were the e99's and the 109's right in there.....Next the Rossi BC90's and finally the Rossie or Fischer 110?????.....Finally a new acquaintance doing parallel....Bout 14 inches of powder and quite fast....Still needed some steepness to really fly....but....there are some thingers in the snow that try to mess you up.....Porterhouse steak....onions and bacon....Took a bit to warm things up.....Ice cold beer.....Ski out was fun and finally we are in winter....TM

In a perfect world the snow would be deep enough so everybody would leave only one mark.

I may not agree with your gear choice but you do know how to eat out there.

Why does my avatar have a bag over its head? And why am I called a "XCD Enthusiast"? I am not. In fact, I think that term is of recent vintage. We just called them "flailing beaters" back in the day.

Wondered if Burghers was living in a small Medieval village!!!!.....Al any time your in this area there will probably be some area that is good...We all like meeting people who appreciate being out in Nature...Looking good out there so might take a long one and see if Little Mountain has the goods...Or not!
