  • Telemark

    Mike England
    Ah, the T1. Amazing how such a simple letter-number combination can evoke so much unbridled lust. Like most developing tele skiers, I’ve always wanted a pair. And now, thanks to the established protocols of gear-review reciprocity, I have them. Read more >>
    Schmidt, HJ
    Creative costumery, copious cross-dressing, amazing music, parades, parties, prizes, and pandemonium—it’s not New Orleans, it’s Mardi Gras in Montana: the Montana Telemark Corporation’s Pinhead Classic, affectionately referred to by freeheel fanatics everywhere as “the Pinhead.” Every spring, imp Read more >>

    Metrick, Dee
    There’s a wise older woman in my life who told me, “Don’t give advice, just tell your story.” So as we head toward winter and the plethora of outdoor recreational activities associated with cold smoke, I can’t help but give in to the urge to tell all women under 30: Do not learn skiing or snowboa Read more >>
    Soule, Brian
    For years I sat in humble awe on the chairlift, content to be carried to the tops of runs. Content to sip coffee and eat overpriced french fries in lodges with noisy tourists. At some point, all that chair-gazing awakened me to the perfect paradise just over the boundary ropes. Read more >>
