Telemark Development [Ages 9–16]
This program seeks to improve each athlete’s skiing through the development of the Telemark turn. It is designed to expose participants to the skills of telemark skiing through all-mountain adventures, tele race, bumps, trees and powder on telemark gear. The goal is to have a great time and acquire skiing confidence while utilizing a variety of terrain. Athletes are encouraged to participate in all of the Steamboat Cup Race Series including alpine, freestyle and cross country. Due to the broad age range of this program, the groups will likely be divided by age as well as ability.
