Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Kids telemark

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
My son fancies a go at telemark. Struggling to find skis in his length. He is probably looking at 130cm skis.
Boots probably mondo 23/24.

Anyone got anything lying around that could have a new home?

Many thanks

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Exude the dumb question but can these be sized to a junior boot and could I somehow use a pair of his alpine skiing? For trying out it will be in a fridge so no need for uphilling!

The super telemark bindings will fit any 75mm telemark boot. The 7TM goes pretty small, but not sure how small.

Hi- fantastic idea- pm me if you want.
this is a tricky question. It is really hard to get junior tele kit.

Unless you live in Scotland in which case join the Scottish Telemark Club- they have stuff and they have families with kids who telemark and who grow. (Or unless you live in Bourg or les Houches- ditto).

We have a 10 yr old who is now on tele gear- we have some Garmont telesaurus boots and have put some 3 pin bindings on some 130 skis.

Advice: look on eBay for boots- these are the killer, get as many pairs in small sizes as you can , either kids or women's 75mm.

Bindings: to start some 3 pin bindings- eBay- cheap
then some cable bindings- possibly a Targa Elle (or any Targa binding with a short cable).

Skis- doesn't matter- any old ski at an appropriate size. If it has a race plate on it so much the better as telebindings on kids skis can end up with a big overhang that then messes with angulation / turns.

Be careful what you wish for- I did this for my eldest boy when he was 11, he's now on the GB te lemark team an its costing me a fortune.

@edm. Thanks for the advice. Yes we were hoping to get him some kit together to have a go at the c.f. telemarketing festival. If I get the bindings he has skis that could be used. I guess for only doing the actual telemark he just needs boots and 3 pin binding at front?
