Hey all,

My knees have been talking a lot this season. I have been para-marking more than not on a five day trip to Big Sky. I do still make the tele-turns in the technical terrain.

How many of you out there have made the switch to or back to alpine? any suggestions?

I have been thinking about this a lot lately. i very rarely make tele turns, but it is nice to be able to make turns when I want. I keep thinking that I will "buy my wife" a dynafit setup, and then I can use it.

I like to tele, but I find I am lazy and prefer to make alpine turns again... especially since I am so tired from chasing the toddler around every moment he is awake! You would think my legs would be stronger!

ditto on the lazy part. Also its I remember it being easier to be lazy on alpines. They are more forgiving I mean.
