Never understood skiing. Seems like a waste of perfectly good fishing time.
I think you're the first person I've heard say they went from Tele to Alpine.Yep,made the switch from alpine 30 years ago . Finally upgraded to plastic boots and burly bindings...real difference maker. I can ski longer now and cheat with a parallel turn now and again. Funny how the sport has declined. Mostly diehards, not much for a new crop.
Keep with it until the knees go.
I'm aghast. Grew up alpine and cross country skiing. Tried tele skiing at 27 for the first time. Sold my alpine gear within days. It's been free heel ever since. I started getting alot of grief from everybody about my leather boots so made the switch to plastic a few years back. Glad I did ,for alot of reasons but do miss the purity of my leather set up.I think you're the first person I've heard say they went from Tele to Alpine.
I bought an Alpine set up 3 years ago after 6 seasons on teles and sometimes it's really hard to go back. I will say though that Tele done right is probably the best lookin form between tele, alpine or a snowboard.
Fishing year round on the west side of the Cascades in Washington isn’t really difficult at all with our temperate climates.I love skiing but since I am not young anymore maybe is time to stop.
I would like to fish year around and perhaps this ski season could be my last. Even tough people think we at West coast can fish through winter it is not really easy.
I hope I would be able to hear more at this forum from people who fish through December, January and February.
Do you exercise?Never understood skiing.
I'm far too busy fishing to excerciseDo you exercise?
Backcountry touring and even resort skiing is awesome exercise. I love the mix of stoke and exhaustion after a solid day of skiing. And the pure bliss of carving turns in an untracked slope with a foot of powder is a completely different feeling that I don't get tossi
Don't get me wrong Nick, you know I love fishing. But I also love the change of seasons and Winter is a special time in SW Montana.
