    I know there isn't mud or motors involved but does
    anybody else on the board enjoy this sport?
    It's quite a rush skiing down through the trees in untracked snow. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I used to Telemark when I lived in SLC, Utah. But then I fell and turned my right knee into a universal joint. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Those cross country style bindings just don't let go... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif 3rd degree ACL and 3rd degree MCL. That was 1982 and the knee still doesn't work correctly. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
