Deciding on your telemark skis
Ever wonder why garages were invented? To store all that useless equipment we thought we’d need. While we Nomadiks are all about passionate involvement in outdoor adventures, our back pockets are lined with lint rather than cash and we often need to practice a little restraint when it comes to outfitting ourselves.
Telemark skiing is a discipline that requires diligence and an insane amount of hard-headed passion. Eventually you’ll require special gear, but not when you’re early in the game. The technique necessary to properly telemark ski requires a strenuous, often painful, thigh muscle workout. And true telemark skiing entails discovering back-road country paths and charting new courses. Take some time to nurture your passion and see if you have what it takes before pledging your credit card to telemark fidelity.
Go to a shop prepared, but don’t be too eager to purchase. Make sure you get answers to all your burning questions. If you can’t think of what to ask, use our sample questions to get you going.

Try on several pairs, walk around in them, dance a jig, anything - but get a good feel for them. Your little piggies will thank you later. If you feel comfortable and can envision yourself dashing through the backwoods in these babies, make your purchase but don’t forget to inquire about the return policy.
