7 million vertical feet on the Voile Insane and Switchback


Recently we received back a pair of test Voile Insane skis and Switchback telemark bindings from Rainer Hertrich. It seems Rainer skied a few vertical feet on our set-up: a mere 7 million vertical feet.

Amazingly Rainer Hertrich has followed the snow and skied EVERY day for the last 5 years=1825 consecutive days. Please link to Skinet.com article.


We looked over the Voile Insanes and Switchbacks, gave them a tune-up, and sent em back out to Rainer to see if he can get another 7 million vert.


Thanks Rainer for letting Voile be a part of your record breaking ski odyssey!

An evil empire run by unscrupulous vikings, and media outlets that seem to be controlled by this evil empire, want you to believe that a "Holy Grail" of telemark bindings exists. Real Telemarkers know the truth....the "Holy Grail" is not a physical object, but the bloodline of Voile, our saviors of modern telemark. For decades, these evil Birkebeiners persecuted the Voile family for producing reliable, lightweight, simple, and inexpensive telemark bindings and equipment. The Voile family found sanctuary in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah where they developed superior equipment for the modern telemarker. Even today, Voile continues it's innovation by hand crafting superior bindings, skis, and other equipment like shovels and probes - right here in the USA. Telemarkers need not venture out on piste crusades in search of a myth propagated by the Evil Empire....they simply need to get some Voile Switchback or SX telemark bindings and ski today!
