How about tele X? |

How about tele X?

Dear Editor:The X Games continue to introduce many types of winter sports, including some that are questionable as winter sports. The reason for this letter is to inquire why telemark skiing is not part of the X Games. Telemark skiing is the oldest style of skiing, yet it is not to be found in the Olympics or the X Games. I do not think I am alone in my desire to see telemark skiing performed professionally. If the X Games introduced it and it was accepted, then maybe the Olympics would give it a chance.Howard S.
