Better Telemark Skiing

Today is telemark day. I interview Jim Tasse, a PSIA Nordic Downhill Examiner and a Level III Alpine instructor. Jim is a not only a Black-Diamond sponsored ski instructor, he's also a Shakespeare scholar, musician and old friend.

Jim has some great stuff in this interview on transitioning from alpine to telemark, why he prefers telemark himself and unveils the Unified Field Theory of Skiing. He also gives some tips on getting over some basic hurdles for learning telemarkers. I think there's some great stuff in here and I hope you'll enjoy it.

Also, we started out talking about the New England Telemark events and what goes on there. I split that off as a separate clip.

Finally, I have a quick video excerpt of the Unified Field Theory of skiing. I put that right at the top this time
