think about what you want to ski carefully, bud. Do you remember how much you hated those twin-tips you skiied at Killington a few weeks ago? Just because you can go backwards and jib doesn't mean you'll like that type of ski in or out of the park.
Besides, Justin and I were talking about telemarking this year by getting some boots and bindings on some old alpine skis. Maybe if you do that you'll inspire us to actually spend our moldy money and do it.
Yea yea.... they were Fischer Big Stix. I think that I would rather walk down a run that get back on those fat pieces of ....... well. Nevermind. Not in polite company. Needless to say they were worthless, mushy, sluggish, unresponsive, not to mention I could chatter them badly with even a moderate amount of edge pressure in a carve. not for me.
There has to be a set of twins out there that I would like. I want something snappy though. quick edge to edge and still able to carve a bit but fun in the park. What I think I'll do however is buy something cheap on Ebay so I can learn to grind on them and not care.
On the other hand I am still thinking that tele would be great... especially if some other instructors pick it up like Knotty here....
