Learn the turn dating back to Norwegian Sondre Norheim's historic jump over his father's barn in Telemark, Norway in 1870. A tele-resurgence in the 70s and 80s make telemark the setup of choice for backcountry skiers, who used it to access untracked snow and tour for long distances. Tele equipment manufacturers trailblazed the current trend toward fatter skis for better floatation in powder. Recent innovations in tele-ski shape, camber design, boots have made tele gear easier than ever to learn on. These days, telemark is more about the gear than the turn itself. Many tele'ers love the freedom, comfort and mobility of tele gear, and choose on a turn-by-turn basis whether or not to drop a knee. By spending time with one of our telemark pros, you will learn or refine the graceful turn admired the world over.
