Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

Telemark technique question

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I've been tele-ing for 10+ weeks and I'd like to think I'm an intermediate telemark skier. I can tele down probably all red and some easy blacks.

I've been trying to learn to ski with both heels up but without much success. I started by grabbing the tips of my skis on a bunny slope (grabbing the tips were just to make sure I put enough pressure on both skis). However as soon as I get a little bit of speed I felt like I wasn't in control and automatically reverted back to a tele stance or parallel stance. Are there any tips on how I can improve?

p.s. is there a name to tele-ing with both heels up?
