Paul Parker QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Allow me a bit of philosophy here... We started tele skiing as a rebellion against rules.
Quotation of Paul Parker
By alpine I mean that the gear is viable for ski mountaineering and touring in mountains as rugged as the Alps, or Alaska, or Canada.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Challenging snow is one of my favorite kinds of skiing, and I like being able to switch techniques at liberty.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Come winter, I'm up at 5am every morning just because it's out there. Waiting for it to get light. There is so much to do on skis.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Even as the sport evolves into different kinds of riders in different environments, there still seems to be a common thread that makes us a community.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Feeling a part of that community is my greatest reward.
Quotation of Paul Parker
For me, being able to go anywhere you want, with an element of precision and control, has been the goal.
Quotation of Paul Parker
For the past number of years I've been working a lot on parallel turns, as they are really efficient effective with a pack.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Give it too much sidecut for its width, or a tail that's too wide, and you can scare yourself silly on steep slopes - the ski doesn't want to let go of one turn and go on to the next.
Quotation of Paul Parker
I like new stuff, I like change, which is why I got involved in product development.
Quotation of Paul Parker
I wanted to feel that precision and control and then try to apply it to tele. That's what I've looked for in my gear development through the years, and today, tele is very precise, very high-performance.
Quotation of Paul Parker
I was lucky enough to be involved in the early stages of the sport when there was so much room for development and change.
Quotation of Paul Parker
I'd just reiterate our needing to be open-minded, not caught up in rules. Ski on whatever kind of gear you want, make whatever kind of turn you want. That's the freedom in free-heel skiing.
Quotation of Paul Parker
In each of these companies I do whatever needs to be done, whether it's ideas, testing, marketing, catalog copy-writing, or dishes.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Many skiers have already done that-the Excalibur Mito, for example, first developed as a randonnee ski, is one of our most popular tele models.
Quotation of Paul Parker
No longer are we tele-ing on skinner boards and locking our heels down on wider ones - they are all wide.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Oliver's G3 looks nice. I personally don't care for the bulkiness of the cable with the pistons, but I've heard good things about it, and I like the concepts: compression springs, stainless steel, etc.
Quotation of Paul Parker
One item on my agenda is simply planning trips, setting them as goals, something to look forward to.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Parabolics work ok for playing around on packed piste, but most of us don't want to be confined to piste.
Quotation of Paul Parker
People like to feel they are buying of their own good judgment as a result of the information the salesman has given them.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Personally, I don't care for it, because I'm a reclusive person and avoid scenes.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Personally, I'll use all of the help that I can get. It's the skier's choice, there are no rules. That's the rule.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Some will say that tele has lost its soul with the new gear. My feeling is that if people don't want to use the big stuff, they don't have to.
Quotation of Paul Parker
Tele skiers, at least in the States, are freeriders. One could say that our attitude has defined that all-mountain concept.
Quotation of Paul Parker
The best indication is that I still love to ski on most anything, from skating gear to heavy metal.
Quotation of Paul Parker
There are many skiers who have chosen tele for a more compact, streamlined skiing system.
Quotation of Paul Parker
We are a bunch of passionate people, passionate about our sport, and it's human nature, too, to want to think that our way is the right way.
Quotation of Paul Parker
We have to be careful about creating more rules.
Quotation of Paul Parker
What will reinvent Alpine is if we create too many rules, create too much of a scene that obscures the value of a very cool, elegant, free sport.
Quotation of Paul Parker
You see skiers doing everything on tele gear. Again: precision, control, versatility.
