    Can't see much difference between their parallel and their carved turns. Both seem to involving edging the skis and carving.

    Lots of opinions about how they work their feet… I love watching the quiet upper body and pole placement that is fairly consistent throughout.

    Great skiing. Guy in green has nailed the wide stance. Instructor at 6.47 is very good. Great to watch.

    Guy in green is the most stylish for sure

    The guy in green looks very smooth. 

    Everyone except for the guy in green, at times, had their ski very close together. Does the new style of telemark skiing have a wider stance? I`m looking at my Scarpa Terminator X Pro boots and there are large scuff marks on the scuff protector located on the inside boot area. I suspect that my skis (105mm underfoot) are too close together and when I`m moving my back ski forward, the inside edge is cutting into the inside boot. 

    Is my technique incorrect and should be stance be wider?

    Some nice looking turns a few sloppy ones in there but still over all nice to watch. I never thought of them as different types of tele rather I just use what I need when I need it. Interesting to see it broken into categories. It would have been nice to also see some "old technique" What I started with a still do when the skiing gets steep which is to bend deep and get low on the skis. Not many of us left as the new gear lets you stay up high and in control

    nice to see the diffrent kind of styles and looks everyone has – though we talk all about TELEMARK… I am not a pro but I dont like too much the new-school head-in-style BUT!!! Look at the guy with black clothes and WHITE helmet! (who is it???) HE has a great sense of balance, his stands are compact and most time perfectly in centre with very smooth and fast feet-reaction – VERY NICE!! (JUST a subjective point of view 😉

    Thy don't lean enough forward… the bum is sticking out. So that tey are sliding in the begining of a carve…
    And they have sometimes to big distance between the feet lengthways (about a bootlength is optimal)

    the worst telemark example you could get from an instructor. This atrocious head-in stand is … atrocious, short turns are ridiculous and the carving is poor…

    Having skied for almost fifty years and done telemark turns in wonderful powder and on groomed hills; These picture of turns here are not telemark turns!!! The telemark by definition is the dropping of one ski so that the downhill ski edges into the hill, and the back ski edges into the tail of the forward ski; thus one long ski or edge. What is shown here is really a modified "short swing". Try a traditional telemark turn up high on the mountain and you'll see what a beautiful turn it is!!

    When you are learning tele turns, it is no shame to bail out and make parallel turns. I learned to make tele turns on my own,, linking hockey stops and just keep going. I have a weak side and an ankle that won't turn in as readily, but I will keep at it, and this video is just perfect to get the feel of the flow of turns. So beautiful. Skiing at Stevens Pass this weekend, can't wait!

    Telemark skiing rocks. The best, most elegant way to go down a hill. I learned to X country ski at 40. My first downhill skis were freeheel. Everyone says "ooh, its so hard." But I have been a competitive cyclist, which gave me a physical advantage to keep trying to make tele turns. I am fifty now, and finally making linked turns. Awesome. Great video to observe.
