Since I moved to Idaho I've been Telemarking. Telemarking is more about a lifestyle than an athletic activity and I'm totally awful at that activity. Everyone at Backwoods has broken down in the last month and started skiing AT gear. I finally tried it last Thursday on Dollar and made more improvements in one run than in 4 years of telemarking. Ugh. I feel like a loser now that I'm on the groomers and not dropping the knee, but it's REALLY awesome. I'm looking forward to going again on Thursday.
