Like I said, I respect them, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna go down the slope looking like I'm proposing to some invisible woman every time I make a turn.

They will be activities relegated to ski blade status soon.

Mysticfalcon I ride with some teleskiers that are absolutely nuts. Last year at Jay Peak there was a teleskier in the top 3 in the big air comp. Living in an area with lots of tight backcountry stuff there are a lot of very good teleskiers out earning their turns all the time. Most of the locals on skis either have Tele skis or AT (the releasable heel skis)

snowvols It is a different type of skiing all together and for some reason they take pride in being a free-heeler. There are also Alpine ski setups that allow to lift the heel for skinning up the hill.

baldylox Isn't the point of telemark that you can lift your heel making it easier to skin uphill when touring?

linvillegorge I respect the telemark guys, but it is cold hard fact that it is impossible to teleski wothout looking like a complete douche.

HoboMaster Guys on Monoskiis can rip too, but that doesn't help them avoid looking funny as hell.

Being an "ok" skier, I just don't understand telemarking. It's like adding a handicap on purpose. Maybe that's the point

Zee I'm going to disagree with telemarking being gaper, the guys I know on telemarkss absolutely rip.
