1. How to mount telemark skis


    from The Life Unbound Added 6,934 11 1

    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.

      With the snow nearly nonexistent in Utah we took matters into our own hands and rolled the dice. While Silverton had more snow we had no idea what we were actually going to be in for. With zero support except our sleds and each other we headed to 12,000ft and set up operations. We got lucky when a storm rolled in blanketing the mountains and leaving us unsure as to whether we would be able to make it out due to slides. Here is our story.

      • Transitions: Life Unbound EP2 [SE2]


        from The Life Unbound Added 3,128 17 1

        December was a challenging month, from the Holidays to the weather, we saw it all. We had a thaw, we had rain, we had enormous storms and finally we had the crowds. In this time though, our mountains transformed from brown to white and finally into winter. The wind played a major role in this episode and was constantly tormenting us. When we had little snow it threatened to rip it all away, when we had a lot of snow it piled up cornices and slabbed up pristine slopes. It seems as if we are off to a solid start as 2013 rolls in.

          Winter has faded to spring and the desert season is upon us. We headed down south to Moab with a snowmobile, bikes, skis and camping gear. After a night of camping in the desert and sand it seems odd to suit up for a ski outing, but that is just what we did. Using the snowmobile to gain access to a zone we visited 3 years ago, we skinned to nearly 12,000ft. The views of red rocks and national monuments atop a snow covered line thru the rocks, is a thing of rare beauty. To cap off a few days of amazing skiing we also did the obligatory bike ride thru Moab's infamous slick rock. With the mountains we skied the day before in the background and single-track slick rock in front of us, it was an amazing few days.

            Two early season storms set the tempo for the early 12-13 season. We first got a 42" storm up North at Snowbasin and Powder Mountain followed by a lull that all but melted the snow pack. During the downtime we attended the Alta Athlete party kicking off the 75th year at the storied resort. We were treated to a historic slide show from the one and only Jimmy Collinson tying over a 100 years of the past with the present. The second storm dropped 52" on Little and Big Cottonwood canyon and it was game on. With rocks still peering out from all angles, it was enough to link up some very deep turns. As the weather warmed we turned to our own back yard, Park City, for a tour of the Monitors.

                  As the season's flip from winter to spring, and then from summer to fall, we reminisce about our past season turns. While some turns might have fallen short, it is the memorable ones that stoke the flames of anticipation. We skied around Park City and scored some great conditions with dramatic clouds. We then took an ill fated trip down South to the beautiful Tushar mountains. Sickness and 60degree temps were too much to overcome and we struck out. As the leaves start to change, we think back to some of our more memorable turns and get fired up for the upcoming season.
