Mitch over a TelemarkTips.com recently blanked out his news section to hype a piece of news that he claimed will be talked about "a decade from now." The news went live at midnight (MST) on Friday December 8th and as it turns out, Black Diamond is working on a telemark boot/binding interface that is step-in, and releasable. TelemarkTips claimed it is the "Holy Grail" of telemark, and indeed, I would have to agree. Anyone who has stooped over with frozen hands struggling to get into a telemark binding while your alpine skier friends clip in with a single stomp knows how important a system like this could become.
I have to say, Mitch's plan was absolutely brilliant. It was an old trick, but it played out perfectly.
And apparently someone named Tyrone is pissed that he got scooped.
