EPIC FLAVOUR Telemark movie

« EPIC FLAVOUR » our latest film summarizing our
2018-2019 season.

A taste of adventure as a form of motivation,
through images punctuated by music on the same
level. Re-live the moments that count; on the
slopes, in the tight, tight forest , and on top of the
mountains, all for a taste of adrenaline. And dont
forget the unbelievable views.

This 5th edition marks a first for 75mm Production.
Part of the film shot in Japans Hakuba Valley;
a well known spot for its ever abundant snowfall,
with forests as far as the eye can see. Kodama
Lodge, managed by their Swiss friends, was the
crash spot for 8 days of powder.

The return to europe was equally interesting with
so many nice sunny days, and tons of powder that
allowed us to exploit these memorable conditions.

In short, a great adventure that recaps a wonderful
season with lots of laughter, and a couple of


Telemark Evolution Ep4.: 1990 telemark skis

Let's try to telemark with my old telemark skis. This is epidose 4 of my experiment to ski telemark set ups from different eras.

I wear the Garmont Veloce Telemark boot and try 2 pair of skis.
The Salomon X-scream are mounted with the Voile CBR release plate that where pretty popular back in the day. I have not tested if they were still reliable and the one fall I took didn't need any releasing. The Binding is a Voile Binding, I think the Riva 2.
The other pair is the Rossignol Big-Bang mounted with the Rainey Super Loop. Fun fact is that 22Designs bought Rainey when they started and inspired their first binding, the Hammerhead.

In the end, I had lots of fun.
I really improved and felt more confident on these setups in the little tiome I had to try them. But I never managed to become as good as I used to be and I still feel that we are spoiled from modern telemark gear.

Telemark ski evolution: The four Set Ups experiment Ep.2

You can check more on my website:
This is my Telemark challenge for the season, going back in time with set ups from four different eras.

We will go from the 80s super long skis to today's wide boards.
Telemark skiing has evolved so much and I've kept updating my gear all along.
I want to go back in time and see the advantages we might have lost along the way, or the benefits I get from the modern set ups we enjoy today.

For the 80s set up, we have the Atomic 210 cm ski, with a lot of camber, mounted with the Chili telemark binding from Rottofella. Then, I found my original telemark skis and binding. It is the Karhu Hardbody 203 cm mounted with Rottofella 412, a front-loading telemark binding. I will ride both skis with a Vasque leather boot.

For 90s setup, I have the X-scream from Salomon, a parabolic ski, with the very popular Voile release plate. I also have the Rossignol Big Bang, mounted on the Rainey SuperLoop telemark binding. This ski/binding combo is mine and I have skied it 5-6-7 years, can't remember. I will ride the Garmon Veloce with these skis.

For the 2000 setup, I have found the Karhu Kodiak, mounted on the 22designs Hammerhead. This is a short ski for me, but it should edge and carve very well. Not in the video, I will also add a Black Diamond AMP ski mounted on a Black Diamond O1 telemark binding. This is a fat ski, very good for powder. I feel that this is the era where people started to buy more than one set up, and choose according to conditions. I will ride both skis with the super-powerful Crispi XR boot.

For the 2010 to today setups are all NTN based setup. We have the Black Diamond Route 88 mounted on the Bishop BMF-R telemark binding. This is my day-to-day patrol ski. I also chose the Helio 105 from Black Diamond mounted with the Lynx, 22Designs latest telemark binding. This is my setup for backcountry telemark and the one I use telemarking in the Chic-Chocs. I might also show you a few other setups I have that are different for that era, plus a surprise. I will ride those with the Crispi Evo WC telemark boot check out the full series for more fun on the telemark history gear review.

Telemark skiing at MIA SKI RESORT!


#6.2 Telespaghetti

New season, new trip. This year it's in Italy, in the Dolomites in Cortina d'Ampezzo that 75mm Production takes its team and its friends from the Telemark Club Dents du Midi, and the Team de la Cuisse Chaude! Cherry on top, Paolo Tassi, guide and first order telemarker, will help them discover some of the region’s unexpected places.

Despite the very low snow conditions this winter, he leads them safely through corridors that are usually inaccessible and totally crazy, both for the sensations and the breathtaking scenery! Telemarks on their backs and sometimes crampons on their feet to climb steep walls, via ferrata, ... riding here must be earned !

A crazy adventure punctuated by moments of sharing and conviviality, to create memories forever engraved in the memories of the entire team. For everyone, this week is the opportunity to live an extraordinary experience with the only watchword, the surpassing of oneself.

Special thanks to Eleonora Colli of the Cortina Tourist Office for her hospitality and availability, and to Paolo Tassi for the friendship shared during the week, without whom all this would not have been possible.

The Telemark Movie (1987)

THe video makes use of stop-motion to present a simple, effective visual guide to Telemark skiing that will aid skiers of all abilities from beginners to experts.

Washington in New Hampshire; the steep forests of Mad River Glenn, Vermont; the glaciers of Mt. Hood in Oregon; knee deep powder in Sun Valley, Idaho; above tree line in the North Cascades of Washington, and the majestic valleys of the Canadian Rockies.

Dick Hall is the founder and director of NATO, The North American Telemark Organization, and has, for the past 15 years, taught thousands of people the joys of Telemark skiing.

OUR FAMILY - 2019 Telemark Movie

Just beneath the northern Sierra crest lies Lake Tahoe, a place that embodies the heart and sole of the mountain community in California. This year, our film delves into the close ties that make up that community and preaches why many of us live they way we do. Come see what draws us to the mountains and how we are able to share that with our friends and family. Additionally, with the absence of a big mountain Telemark comp this year, our Telemark family has lost a significant proving ground for youngsters growing up in this ultra niche sport. Without some sort of big mountain gathering, the sport loses direction, inspiration and is prone to stagnation. Stay tuned to hear what we propose.
