Had an afternoon practicing telemarking at Cairngorm Mountain. I can more or less link an easy piste worth of wobbly turns with a fairly wide stance.
The eureka moment came when I spotted a young guy executing (what looked to me like) perfect tele’s at speed. I just had to talk to him; so I made an effort to get on the same T bar lift and rinse his brains for tele tips. What a nice bloke! (fortunately).
The mantra is: ‘Big Toe, Little Toe’.
Point with your big toe on your outside turning ski and at the same time point with your little toe (in the same direction) on your inside ski.
I’m really only writing this down so I don’t forget it.
Any other top tips from telemarkers out there gratefully received.
