  • The Paralyser 24/06/2012 | Telemark Phat
    lots of playful bumps and lips to hop around and off The snow was denser wind pack than yesterday but still smooth enough to keep my skiing playful rather than worry about my ribs which were still sore after my wednesday morning slide Tony and I donned our skins and headed up to the north face of the Paralyser opposite Mt Perisher Once again the snow was dense smooth and only a slight crust had started to form Tony and I had two brilliant laps with the face all to ourselves or so we thought Someone had poaced the face inbetween our first and second laps without our even noticing With the north face tracked out and the cloud lingering Tony and I decided to try our luck over on Mt Wheatley Sadly the glue on my skins failed I haven t had this much trouble with skins since the early nineties so we decided to have an early mark and headed back to Perisher in the early afternoon Tony on Shifty s Me at the bottom of Shifty s The top of Mt P all rhimey and wind blasted Me enjoying the dry on Snow Snake Lots of bumps to play on More Snow Snake goodness Our tracks on Snow Snake and some skin track stoke Skinner in the mist On route to The North Face of The Paralyser Now for the action It was good Tony Tony finishing up his first lap The top of Tony s second lap And on he goes With the North Face tracked out it was time to move on Today was just as good as yesterday another day of the season Lest all pray to Hughey for more of the same this winter NSW BC Add new comment Your name E mail

    closing shortly before we arrived Today was another day of the season It was cold with lovely dense wind blown drifts at Guthega of 10 20cm Race training devolved to a morning of freesking training as we zoomed around Guthega all morning The afternoon was basic skills training with the odd freshie dash thrown in There is hardly any shrubbery left above the snow at Guthega and the return track is well formed I d be suprised if the Perisher Link isn t completed by next weekend with the forecast snow leaving only Olympic to open The drive back down was chaos the RMS was lax with getting people to put chains on and there were at least 10 cars on the side of the road while the traffic slowly pottered down the road at 10km h Plenty of snow on the road above Sponars Freshies by Pony Ride Milk Run looking good More Milk Run Bloody Mary I see some BC skiing in my future Someone stole the websites number plate The drive home was even snowier This is the School Holiday start dreams are made of If you aren t having any fun out there you have not

    lines through the resort which you are only allowed to cross through designated gates Unlike here and in Europe is an offence to duck a rope and ski a closed area and the whole week I was there I didn t see any poaching going on On the 15th I spent the morning exploring the areas to the East of the Cirque Regulator Gad Chutes Wilbere and Mach Schnell Even though the long arm of the law throughout the resort changed the atmosphere from European Skiing the terrain was just as good and the snow was better quality than anything I ve skied over there The other similarity to Europe was the difficulty in finding first tracks in the places a new visitor would look The gold rush was in full effect on both days and I only managed to find two pitches on both days were I got to lay down first tracks I spent the afternoon on easier terrain around Gadzooks and Wilbere doing balance drills in a desperate attempt to look prepared in my clinics Bad light and limited vis meant few photos First tracks on Bassackwards Snowbird from the top of Wilbere On the 16th I was ruined Altitude no ski legs and a niggling cold kept me off the hill for the Morning To keep the legs limber I walked up to Alta and back By the time I got back my legs were feeling good and I spent the afternoon exploring the Peruvian Gulch and Blackjack areas I found some great steep treed lines which combined with all of the snow in the trees reminded me of the seasons I spent skiing in Whitewater in British Columbia Looking down Thanks for the Memories Looking up a line near the Keyhole The trees wanted to

    American ski instructor associations With the clinics I was too busy to take any pics With the hard part over I was looking forward to the activities planned for the 18th We started the day by doing another thing Ski Instructors can t seem to be able to avoid when they get together we skied together in synchronised demo runs We did three runs and were split up into groups by the brand of our equipment The first run was by boot manufacturer the second by binding manufacturer and the third run by ski manufacturer With half a run for planning and practice and the other half for the demo the runs were rough and ready But with the music pumping and an enthusiastic atmosphere we had a ball In the afternoon I joined in on the clinic offered by Ty Upson the Head Coach of the US Telemark Team He presented on the basic fundamentals of the technique used by the US Team The principles were getting waaaaay forward during the transition a longer stance for the rules and to help getting forward inclining in the turn large edge angles and quick lead changes The technique worked and there are elements I think we could include in the Australian System However I felt like I was skiing backwards since this style is so different to the technique Australian Instructors used An Australian Flag The West Peak of American Fork Mt Superior from the bottom of Mach Schnell Almost Synchronised Synchronised All of the Scarpa Skiers The teams got ambitious on the final run Snowbird from the Wilbere area That night there were indoor presentations from the Swiss the US and a presentation on how to train basic skiing skills indoors using regular fitness equipment Afterwards there were a couple
