  • The T-Stop | Telemark Phat
    then completely transfers his weight to the right hand ski with a forceful lateral thrust to the heel This will cause the ski to turn across the slope Simultaneously he allows the tip of the left ski to meet the right boot and allow the left ski to guide him in a straight line In the plate below R Hocking Esq demonstrates the position adopted midway through the T stop A more emphatic shift of the weight onto the right hand ski would produce a more abrupt stop The T Stop in Progress In the following plate he can be seen to have completed his stop within a short number of yards The T Stop in Progress In his excellent treatise The Complete Book of Ski ing H Mückenbrünn notes that this technique is a very powerful brake but owing to the wide straddle required and the excessive forward leaning of the body it is very fatigue and to be used sparingly The author wholeheartedly agrees with this sentiment but feels that the T stop is nonetheless an important technique to be mastered by the competent skier Technique Add new comment Your name Subject Comment More information about text formats

  • Mounting Telemark Bindings to Skis | Telemark Phat
    mounting positions For boot midsole measure your boots midsole length forward of the centre line marked on the skis This is the boot midsole pin line you will match your template up to if you use this method To measure out chord centre measure the chord centre distance back from the tip of the ski to make your pins on chord centre marks Measure the marks on each ski from the ski tip and make sure the marks are on the same position on each ski Finally stand your skis against a wall to make sure your markings are on the same position on each ski Midsole Pins on chord centre and pins on midsole markings The markings line up After measuring and checking your pin lines it comes time to decide where to put the bindings Most of the time chord centre and boot midsole will work out putting your binding in roughly the same position If there is not much difference I normally yield to the manufacturer s recommendation With these skis there was a large difference midsole was 5cm forward of chord centre Before removing the alpine bindings I put my old alpine boot into them and the manufacturers mark matched the midsole of my boot well so I went with the manufacturer s recommendation If there is a big difference you can cut your losses and go in the middle or chose a point in the range of measurements As a general rule putting the binding a bit further forward will improve hard snow performance and putting the binding further back will improve soft snow performance Remember to check one more time your chosen line is on the same place on each ski Step 4 Mark out screw holes Once you have chosen and checked the location of the pin line you want to use to mount your bindings against put your template on the ski and line it up with your centre line and your chosen pin line Use a hole punch and a hammer to tap a little indentation in the top sheet of your ski for each hole The indentation will help you keep the drill steady when you start the hole Reader Tip Ziggy a poster on the ski com au backcountry forum suggests One tweak I do is to photocopy the mounting template onto an OHP transparency Use that to mark the drill points just with a compass point and follow that up with an automatic centre punch The template easily lasts over several skis Line up the template against both the centre and pin lines Use a hole punch to mark your holes in the top sheet Next remove the template and draw little circles around each hole punch mark This will help compare skis and check your holes later Use the hole punch again to make sure you have made a good indent into the top sheet Draw circles around the hole punch marks Hole punch again to make

  • Moment Belafonte 182cm (2013) | Telemark Phat
    ve had on the Belafontes reminded me of a pair of GS Race skis You need to be forward put the edges and pressure on early in the turn and they will rocket GS and SG turns They just require more commitment to the transition and a dose of patience to get their wider frame onto edge They are happy to do short radius turns but due to their straighter sidecut require more steering at the top of the turn than your standard all mountain ski On Ice Happily I didn t hit any ice on these skis while I was in Utah On the very firm groomers the held a better edge than I expected and they certainly have the edgehold to be a potential all mountain ski for high level skiers in Australia Fresh Snow While the Belafonte s are at home in the fresh it is not where they shine The rocker provides a good amount of float and I never went over the bars in up to 45cm of powder at Alta although I did feel the tips hinting they might catch The problem with these skis in the fresh is their stiff tails with regular camber The camber is light enough that you can vary your turn shape and smear however the Belafonte s don t like to maintain a smear and are always looking to go forward again They aren t an ARG or Lotus 138 but they are more than acceptable in the fresh Moguls As you would expect of a stiff wide ski they are some work in the moguls They prefer a more direct carved line to a cautious skidded line Crud Variable chopped up wind affected and slushy snow is where these skis really shine Their long effective edge gentle
