Interesting article. Here's a pic of the same fellow Clearly weight forward but both skis parallel, turning on the big camber and sidecut. Double camber lightweight touring skis aren't well suited to this. Doing teles on skinny XC racing skis is a real test ... I broke a tip doing such at the top of Mt Stirling ... skiied down in snowboard fashion on one ski. I now keep my skating skis in the car for a blast after a tour ... great feeling if you've never tried 'em.
