Telemark Skiing - SA
"Free the heel and your mind will follow." A cross between downhill and cross country skiing, telemark involves a graceful free heel turn that opens up alpine and steep terrain to lightweight backcountry gear. The course starts with the basics of skiing downhill, including braking and turning, then moves to the tele turn, and finally progresses to linked turns. Instructor to student ratio of 1:4 ensures individual attention and progression. Taught on lift-served slopes. All students will receive a Saturday lift pass for Song Mountain. The course also includes transportation to and from Song Mountain and telemark skiing equipment rental.
