Mounting telemark bindings has become something that is discussed and debated ad nauseum....it doesn't need to be that way! After mounting hundreds of telemark skis and experiencing good mounts and wacky mounts I am sharing with you all that I have learned. When ski manufacturers give you a mount recommendation, use it! Skis are designed using complex formulas, technology and forethought. Don't hinder your skis ability and your skiing with a whack mount. With today's ski technology like early rise, camber profiles, progressive side cut and more you can think less because the ski does more. If you have ANY questions or think I am full of crap, chime in, start a discussion and lets standardize telemark binding mounts.
