Yeah. Up come the carrots.
I've finally had a go at puting my new boots on. They are Scarpa TX-Pro with Intuition liners. They felt a bit on the loose side at first. Slipped the scarpa footbed into them and they now feel like a very nice fit. Not really any uncomfortable spots at all.
So question is whether to heat mold or not? Any thoughts.
Wait til your knee pads arrive before molding, obv.
I've never baked mine but I have boringly normal feet.
I didn't bake my new T2s before a week of skiing in Japan and got some weird pressure points and foot crush until the footbeds settled in a little as the week went on. I'll bake 'em before the 2017 Australian season.
Considering your first attempt at tele will have an audience, best leave unbaked so you've got something to blame
Don't bother. You will be back to heels down before too long.
May start a new trend. AT skiing in tele boots. Stiff but with a bit of bend for style.
It's too easy to parallel in NTNs. Easy temptation when noones looking.
I must admit that I saw more Telemarkers in Austria this year than ever before.
Baking these days is sous vide. I would say yes to ensure you have space around the toes but it depends on what Intuition liner is in there.
I was watching, I saw you cheating........
Always heat mold. So easy to do yourself as well.
Just light a fire, SB is good at that!
I have just been researching options for a fire inside the Transporter.
Small rocket stove and a pipe out the roof
Do they do a RHD conversion?
What carve skis are peeps riding here.
Im after something around 85 underfoot that doesnt have a stiff tail.
I see carveman has some Brahmas @ 173 for a decent price. Maybe slightly long for me.
Has anyone tried these
I can recommend DPS Cassiar.
Found Blowette trying out my tele gear last week. Cheeky:
Never too early to tele.
My only regret is starting too late.
Never too late
I will pray for your lost soul.
Maybe this will be the year I hire some clodhopper gear and give alpine a go. I will never say never. Although that would mean I would also have to have a go at snowboarding. Even blading, but I could do that with a tele setup. I draw the line at to bog…nah, in for one… how about each to their own?
FFS, just buy some tennis racquets, strap them to your feet and shoot yourself!
In the foot that is.
I don't think it's 12 inches!
Im happy with 8!
And thus the circle of life is complete.
If you guys are still on the hill and see a tele skier in orange pants green top say hi and we can catch up for a run
Have you never heard the old saying "orange and green should never be seen except on an Irish Colleen"? at least you will be safe.
Haven't heard that one, but you must know me because I'm about as tall as a leprechaun
Well this will be the last trip @Snow Blowey will be allowed on unchaperoned...
His missus will realise what a chick magnet he has suddenly become.
Snow looks dry there, tele whippet
Dry champagne Thredbo blower (not the other Bo blower! )
He was prurty tele-sexy bebe
I'd better get these finished then
My eyes, my eyes, must rub chilli into them to make them better.
Has he been secretly practising somewhere? Looking good.
Those are the subdued pair, the others are brighter A bit of a change from the old army battledress
If I can't ski I have to look like I can
3 laps of high noon and three laps of merrits on the teles. Now can't walk due to quad stiffness. So if i manage to pick anyone up she better not be after any exotic positions. Reverse cowgirl should be ok.
If the van's a rockin' --------
Good to see SB's wearing "protection".
Of course all you tele boys wear helmets. Just in case your mrs' go preemptive on the chick magnet thing.
