Today, every people know the distinction between cross country skiing and alpine skiing. And nobody will say stupid thing like we both are on sky, weir winter equipment, etc. the difference is obvious, more than in our sport.

Telemark turns is an old technique not in use today by most people. We can imagine people at that time who had to travel accross long and steep hill using snowplough turn on that ground. As the people become more aware of telemark, a new ethic was used to go downhill. The last step of the evolution was our new rigid both and fixation just use to go down hill.

In climbing, I can thing that we are at the telemark time to make the distinction between two kind of practice. It is easy to imagine that going with alpine equipment in a trail going up and down is ackward. I just can hope that beginer will understand that going to and adventure area with bolt and gym technique can be dangerous.

Note to Luke: the telemark gear pictured is state of the art and used to tour the back country, ski in resorts, rip steep couloirs, ski powder in the trees, skin uphill and compete in big mountain free skiing comps as well as in the park and pipe--it all depends on the desire and skill of the user-- kind of like multi-discipline climbing!! Let's stop trying to reintroduce segregation! :-*

someone should tell the 10s of thousands of free heelers they are using an old outdated technique ;)   

go out west and get smoked by a tele skier going past you at a million mph and say it is old and outdated lol   guys have serious skills. 

trad is old and outdated bolt everything woo!!   gridbolt champ's house

I don't think I've ever seen a thread anywhere get hi-jacked so bad.
That means something.

Yeah Lucky Luke, it should mean something to you.

What I wanna know is how anyone in their right mind would even think of returning to the OP after the beautiful, wonderful, scrumptious sidetrack that this thread had successfully taken? What is wrong with you people?  :'(
