The Four Faces of Telemarking

If you telemark the above image will offend you. You will cringe, you will cry. Anger will build inside and you’ll probably curse the air blue with slurs at Danny Noonan. Your entire day will be ruined and you’ll pray that your friends don’t view Unofficial Networks. However deep down you know all of this is true.

To borrow some words from the article Still Telemarking 

“It is one of the engineering marvels of the world how a tele binding with half the function and parts of an AT binding can weigh over twice as much.”

“AT bindings use a mechanical system of springs and cams to release the skier at a predetermined load. Tele bindings stick with their organic roots by using your ACL as a biological release mechanism.  The AT system is reset by stepping back into it, and the tele system is reset by stepping into an emergency room.”

“For years, telemark binding designers have struggled to find a balance between having freedom on the uphill and control on the downhill. The result is a nearly perfect division of performance: the uphill inefficiency is equal to downhill instability.

If you telemark fine by me just stick to Alpine Meadows or Mad River Glen.
