Après avoir lancé un pavé dans l’univers des membranes imper respirantes avec la Neo Shell®, le fabricant de tissu américain arrive en 2014 avec une nouvelle conception de l’isolation thermique : la technologie Alpha®.
Cet hiver 2012-2013 a été exceptionel à bien des égards : des chutes de neige régulières, un froid présent sans trop d'excès toutefois et surtout sans grande variation de température tout au long de l'hiver, permettant ainsi aux nombreuses...
La technologie Gore-Tex® évolue cette année vers toujours plus de chaleur mais aussi de précision. Qui n’a jamais eu à affronter ce terrible dilemme : des gants fins pour conserver les sensations ou des gants épais pour échapper au froid ? Trancher en faveur de l’un ou de l’autre conduit souvent à des déceptions et trouver le bon compromis n’est pas aussi évident que cela. Cette saison la nouvelle génération de gants équipés avec la technologie X-Trafit™ arrive sur le marché avec la ferme intention de régler définitivement ce problème.
These days, it’s not difficult to find a pair of telemark skis that can meet your needs, whether it’s cutting through a fresh layer of snow or edging through the gates. Many companies offer a combination of amazing new designs and high tech materials.
Snowsports participation at ski resorts was down for the 11/12 season, but telemarking was up. And you thought tele was dead.
SIA has released their annual survey results and the numbers are what you would expect, if you know how to interpret them. Any way you slice it, the number of people skiing was down for the 11/12 season compared to the 10/11 season. Considering last season got off to a late start, and the snowfall totals were well below average except in the Pacific Northwest, this is not an unexpected result.
If you thought racing with a fixed binding was difficult, try it with telemark skis. Passing gates and dropping knees at record time is something Jasmin Taylor is familiar with.
This season, we caught up with Jasmin, a British Telemark racer and trainer – she is the overall British female telemark champion. Travelling the circuit, Jasmin has most recently picked up a bronze medal in Espot (Spain), and finished with an overal first place in the last French Cup of the season at La Norma (southern France). Very cool!
We asked Jasmin some questions about racing and her experience as an athlete…
The new trips with Svalbard Villmarkssenter on Spitsbergen are now online and can be booked. There are two 10-day trips with dog sleds, snow kites and skis to huts way off the frozen fjords, as well as snow kite courses and day ski mountaineering trips in one of the wildest and most vulnerable places on earth. Do your part in strengthening a local ecotourism family in order to substitute and exchange current not sustainable tourism practices in the Arctic. You can view and book the trips on the website of the Svalbard Villmarkssenter.
Après avoir déposé sa candidature en septembre dernier, l’avoir défendu au congrès de la FIS en octobre, la délégation qui représente la Plagne a reçu les applaudissements, ainsi que les félicitations d’Andrew Clarke, Président de la Commission.
C’est donc officiel : après une première en 2010, l’organisation des championnats du monde de télémark 2017 est attribuée à Montchavin-les Coches (la Plagne).
That is, this is a pair of custom-made skis, when designed by a computer
We have made-to-order blue jeans and dress shirts, golf clubs and personal computers. Is there anything we can’t customize? How about skis? Nope, turns out Wagner Custom Skis, in Placerville, Colo., near the resort town of Telluride, has been designing one-of-a-kind skis by hand and computer algorithm for several years now.
It turns out that if you combine a degree in engineering, some computer programming skills, and a deep knowledge of—and love for—a specific domain, you can make a living customizing stuff. At least, that’s the experience of Pete Wagner—engineer, programmer, skier, and founder, in 2006, of Wagner Custom Skis. He’s my guest today by phone, from a parking lot in Utah.
Although many may argue that the origins of telemark skiing (or free heel skiing as some refer to it) in North America started in the 1970s as a reaction to the high-tech equipment developments of alpine skiing, in fact telemark skiing was the original form of skiing in North America.
On the hardware front, it seems that 2012 is the year for bindings – so far we’ve had a release from Rottefella (Freedom) and the recently announced G3 (Genuine Guide Gear) Enzo and EnzoR (Resort). It’s only fitting to say that the telemark community is secretly going strong, at least enough to spark interest for new and exciting technology.
Rottefella introduces their second model in the NTN binding lineup. The new NTN Freedom provides a much larger range of motion for touring freedom and drops more than half a pound compared to the NTN Freeride binding.
