The Powder

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 13 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

My second weekend of powder. This time we found some knee high. The downside was I was telemarking. Telemarking in powder is hard for beginners, such as myself, because you’ll be going along nicely and then hit this patch that slows you down and since your heels are held down to the ski, it’s very easy to go face first into all that knee high powder. I wish I had my regular skis, or better yet, a pair of Pocket Rocket’s.

New rule: On powder days, I will always alpine ski.

  1. As soon as you get good and stable on the teles and make that first good, solid turn in powder you will be hooked! It’s just like Dave was saying. I’ve only pulled it off once or twice and it was always shortly followed by a faceplant but that feeling alone has got me hooked!
