The Denver Group 2013 Telemark Ski School will celebrate its 30th year of providing quality volunteer instruction to hundreds of students hailing from all over Colorado! We help “never-ever,” beginner, intermediate and advanced-level telemark skiers learn and/or improve their telemark skiing skills and teach them how to transition those skills into the backcountry for more enjoyable adventures. If you currently venture into the backcountry on touring skis, have witnessed telly skiers carving sweet s-turns down slopes or thru the trees, and have wondered to yourself “can I do that”, well we’re here to tell you that yes, you can and we’ll help you get there! You’ll attend an evening full of telemark skiing information, and spend the next weekend Saturday and Sunday at the ski area and in the backcountry—learning and practicing those skills. We will be offering the school on two separate dates this year. This is YOUR year for telemark skiing!
You want to be sure you’re conditioned for backcountry skiing. You must be fit enough to comfortably travel uphill 1500- 2,000 feet on skis in the back country.
