Tuesday we made it up to the AMC telemark clinic at Gunstock. Tony, Tyson, and Paul were having fun showing off their almost identical skis and bindings. Once Tony mounts his new bindings they will be identical.
I have been having an issue this winter with morale and my telemark skills. At the beginning of the day, I have two left feet and ski horribly. It doesn’t help any that Tyson looks flawless on his new skis. So I end up grumpy for the first half of the trip. Eventually I limber up and can ski decently, but by then I have missed most of the day.
Well, tuesday was no exception to that pattern. The good news is that by the end, I was doing much better than I have before. What I really probably need is just more practice so each trip is not separated by several weeks from the previous one. I suppose later in the season when we start skiing Mt Washington, I will get that.
