This past (ski) season i've got into telemark skiing - the more natural, original form of skiing. It is great fun, especially if you're a bit bored of alpine skiing. A great website for finding out more is telemarktips.com.
I only managed 18 days of skiing this year, of which i think 7 i did tele. It feels so much freer being able to lift your heel. Alpine skis, though they feel 'safer', especially going fast, also feel more restrictive. Bending one knee on the turn can be a little tiring after a couple of hours though!
