About the Author

Allen O'Bannon grew up in Portland, Oregon and while he dabbled a little in skiing and winter camping in the Cascades of Oregon it was really upon moving to the mountains of Wyoming and Idaho at the end of the ‘80’s that he began what has become a life long passion. Allen has worked for the National Outdoor Leadership School since 1987 and spent four seasons working for the United States Antarctic Program. He prefers cold to heat and is miserable at the thought of global warming. He would love some cold weather consulting work.

Mike Clelland is a NOLS instructor and illustrator who studied Mad magazine rather than go to art school. He has numerous books with his name on them, including Allen & Mike's Telemark Tips, Allen & Mike's Really Cool Backpackin' Book, and Lighten Up! and is the illustrator for the very popular Tech Tips in Climbing Magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intuitive Feb. 25 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Learned to telemark at 15 back in '69 from a guy who had just arrived from Norway, I'm amazed to realized all these key points in a funny way.
Not an instrutional book, but a wonderful reminder of how to do it gracefully on fats or skinnies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still a great book, but a lot of overlap Sept. 23 2008
By D. Anderson - Published on
A great source for beginner and intermediate level telemarkers. As the title would suggest, this "revised" version has a lot of overlap with the previous edition. For the price, however, it is worth picking up the new edition and gifting your old dog-eared copy of the original to a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Tips for All Levels of Tele Skiers Aug. 16 2010
By C. Ilenda - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love the book - laid out well. Each "tip" concise and easy to understand. Book travels well, keep it in your pack for a reference while skiing. Many of the tips are focused on the same basic principles (back foot weighting, upper body facing the fall line, etc...) but approaching these principles in multiple different ways increases the chance that a tip will stick in your brain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and informative little book! Dec 8 2009
By Gaulzetti - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is really well done; there are lots of fun and humorous illustrations and accompanying text with helpful little tele tips. If you are new to telemark skiing (as I am) this is a great little book. If you are already a good telemark skier there are some good tips and advice for you too. This book's illustrations are really fun and explain the text well. This book's tips range from really basic to really hard, from good basic tele form to skiing tele backwards. It's a great quick read, and you don't have to read it in the order given. Another fun aspect of this book is a flow chart which helps you decide which tips you should be working on. A nice read for the drive up to your ski resort. I can't wait to read the authors' book about backcountry skiing.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tips! May 8 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was really helpful by giving so many tele tips. They were varied enough that there were certain tips that really clicked with me, improving my turns after being in a flat plateau of no improvement for a long time!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great information on technique with exercises April 9 2014
By AL - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has good illustrations on why it is important to have visuals while learning telemark skiing vs alpine skiing. Good varying exercises are provided focusing single techniques and more for proper telemark position. The illustrations are better for me to visualize certain techniques and why they are important as also repeated in the 'Free-Heel Skiing: Telemark and Parallel Techniques' by Paul Parker.

I would recommend purchasing the hard copy because I found myself drawing in a few of my notes on top of the illustrations provided. Good book overall.

Fun interesting facts like the lurk.
