My much-worn Garmont boots gave out this morning. Telemark gear is not common in the Alps so we were pleased to find an ad for Hurycana Sports which is just down the road from Argentiere.
So we tramped down through the snow and slop to buy some new boots. I walk in and ask about tele gear and am told “nope, we don’t sell that here.” Nor do they rent it.
So I wondered if I was crazy and double-checked their ad. Yep, false and misleading guys. Glad we later discovered Otavalo Telemark in Chamonix which is an awesome shop and in fact sells telemark gear.
