How is this skiing technique called?

loose foot
knee ride
telemark
snow walk
Telemark is a form of downhill skiing using bindings where the boot is attached only at the toe (similar to those of Cross-country skiing). It came to the attention of the Norwegian public in 1868, when Sondre Norheim took part in a ski jumping competition. Norheim's technique of fluid turns soon dominated skiing. Starting in the 1910s, newer techniques based on the stem gradually replaced Telemark in the Alpine countries, as easier to master and more suitable for steep slopes.
