I can answer questions about downhill skiing, telemark skiing, & freeride snowboarding. Feel free to ask me about techniques, riding styles, conditions, equipment, etc. I can also give information about many ski areas along with links to other informational sites.
I have been downhill skiing for 40 years, snowboarding for 18 years, and telemarking for 8 years.
I have always been #1 or 2 expert in skiing, snowboarding, & windsurfing categories at Askme.com
