DESCRIBE TELEMARK SKIING IN THREE WORDS.
Fresh. Free. Fascinating.
WHAT EXACTLY IS THE FASCINATION?
A telemark beginner may still want to stand out. But the real riders appreciate the free play with the snow. The heel is free. That opens up new possibilities to deal with the surface, with waves, with deep snow. As a skier, you then have to feel how the movements work in order to develop a good technique.
HOW DO YOU SEE THE FUTURE OF TELEMARK?
Very optimistic! The number of telemark skiers has been increasing for several years and Germany is one of the leading nations in this discipline. Tobias Müller from Oberstdorf is the best telemark skier in the world. Now telemark just has to become Olympic.
