Telemark skiing has been a part of the Steamboat community since the early 1900’s but it wasn’t until 2001 that SSWSC introduced telemark specific programs. Steamboat is known as the telemark capital of North America. This reputation is well deserved; in recent years a majority of the United States Telemark Ski Team members and US National Champions have been SSWSC skiers.
The telemark team feeds into big mountain and race disciplines. The purpose of the development group is to build fundamental and solid skiing skills to be able to ski all terrain and all snow conditions.
