Re: Time to transition to Teleskiing?

So I just had an Oh shit moment. I am not by any means a park rat, but I love hitting jumps. If you watch me ski, you will find that even on the smoothest of groomers, I manage to find a bump to pop off of, and then attempt to land in a GS turn. I kind of feel like my style may be prohibitive to tele skiing. Ideally, I would like to have both setups. Not to mention I just dropped a bunch on a new set of custom fit Alpine boots this fall.

I just want to mix things up a bit.

Has anyone ever sent it off a 50' kicker on tele skis? Now I want to try this.
I'll take boilerplate ice over wet snow any day

I'm not sure what real skis are, but you mean like 250 meters?

If these kids can figure out how to do this shit on XC skis, NNN bindings and leather boots, then I'm pretty sure you can figure out how to jump with modern Tele gear.

PS the first part of that video is long, but the action starts around 2:53

Anything that can be done on fixed heel skis can be done with free heels, only with more style
