making tele-turns

Too much ice to fish the local spillway for pike. Those big pike will soon hit the shallows for some pre-spawn activity. I've been using the snow to carve some tele-turns on my backcountry cross-country skis. I picked up some new BC boots after last winter and boy a stiff boot makes a big difference. It may look like I'm falling onto one knee but that's the anatomy of a telemark turn. These guys showing how it's done. You've gotta embrace winter. 


  1. I love those Reynard Bitters, boy they look good.
    Any chance of a recipe?

    1. There's a great video on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yD1iuKJLbck
