    Nice 30 minutes in finally coming clean…it was eluded to in the first 30 seconds. Telemark is ultimately going to be a style choice. It isn’t the most efficient choice anymore.

      Isn’t all snow sliding ultimately about style anyway? I think recreational skiing to most people has more in common with dancing than say… running

        YEP, you have to admit that there were a ton of Telemark skiers that were ‘into’ it because they felt it was the way to be seen as a back country skier. I love telemak skiing, it’s just a fun way to make a turn. It takes a ton of strength to have a really solid turn.

    Really liking these podcasts. It’s really great to have people sharing their passion for Telemark Skiing. I really like questions you ask Rene-Martin. Your interview style is really relaxed and you really let the guests do the talking. Great stuff. Keep it up!
