I'm seeking some feedback on suggestions for moving my feeble telemark attempts along and would really appreciate some input. I've spent ALOT of time attempting to practice getting started based on videos, books, and having purchased Absolute Telemarks beginner lessons (which I must say I love), but I am still really cautious with my fragile body and rediculously crap and scared of slopes. I am planning on getting a private lesson (hopefully this week) to try and move things along and to get feedback on some things I am unsure about. Does anyone have feedback on this. I rang Falls today and they said they don't have tele instructors but there are 2.5 at Hotham. We could venture as far as NSW, thought I'm trying to get myself better prepared for the Koski/Ramshead trip next month. Is there anyone who is patient with complete scaredy cats, and who can problem solve bodies that are kinda twisted and understands the gear that I am on (leather with waxless xcd skis not resort telegear?) With thanks.
