Default Has anyone seen this before?

I was standing in line for the lift and looked down at a guy's bindings. They looked like ski bindings and he was wearing ski boots. Before I could ask him about it he was off on the chair and gone before I could get off the lift. Has anyone else seen something like this done? They were not click in boots/bindings either...these were ski boots.

These were pretty common in the 90's. It's pretty much race-oriented. The guy probably had angles in the 40-50 degrees range also...

You don't see much of these nowadays.

Can't speak on it like an expert but for what it's worth:

Race/Freecarve Snowboarding

Hope it helps.

are you sure he didn't just have hard boots on?

Alpine snowboarding boots look like ski boots.

I've read about Tele-Boards and they look godawful strange. I've seen Monoski's, and they just look awkward and uncomfortable. Judging by the description given, it sounds like a Monoski. Why anyone would ever want to ride one is beyond me, but to each their own I suppose.

I guess its that 'euro' carving mentality? I can't imagine they'd be very versatile. Trees anyone lol?

I bet it's a freecarve board. These are not that uncommon. I see a person riding one almost every time I go boarding. A monoski I have only seen once in person. And it was at Keystone. Go figure, lol.
