This Telemark workshop at Wachusetts accommodates skiers new to telemark (first-timers) to advanced telemarkers looking to improve their technique. Instruction covers the basics: stance, traversing, edging, balance, and rotation. We cover tele turn, weight transition, edging, linking turns, poling. Our volunteer instructors will have several groups from novice to advanced. There will be drills and individual instruction in the morning and more free-form skiing in the afternoon.
Cost is $60 for members ($70 for non-members) and telemark rentals are available from the resort (contact leader for details). Registration and deposit are needed beforehand. See FAQ page or contact Jeff if you have specific questions.
