    Awesome! I like the moustache center mount for the current ski, too bad it's out of scale or for a kid.

    The writer took telemark skis to the other side of the planet, pretty awesome!

      Naheed Henderson gave a presentation at the 2006 Vancouver International Film Festival about a trip she made to the Altai Mountains with Nils Larsen. Some of the video she had of the locals on those crazy long skis was hilarious, especially the young kids.
