Tele vs AT

I finally got outfitted for teleing this year. I also own AT gear and was planning on using both this year and just trading off between the two. How hard is it to switch between the two?

It's not hard to switch between the two, and you'll find out how easy it is to AT the back country. That's why I like to start out the season telemarking for strengh and balance, and just plain fun. you'll feel like a rock star on your AT gear.

See ya on the pass

Stick with the freeheels, bro. It's way more pure than that alpine crapola.

I think all alpine skiers should be shot on spot for lack of soul.

Keep it real, bro!

shit man,

teleing lost it's soul a long time ago with the advent of the burley plastic boots, using alpine skiis, "all telemark skis are alpine skis with a tele top sheet" and the new crazy bindings.

I love all of these advances in telemark by the way, makes it alot easier, but if your not using low leathers and skinny skiis, forget about the "soul" thing

Damn ntibbs,

I think we lost you to the alpine world.
Teleboater, I agree with ntibbs about switching back and forth, you actually seem to gain a confindence when you go back and forth and your skills improve with the balance.
