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.

Due to the broad age range of this program, the groups will likely be divided by age as well as ability.
