Details

The Denver Group 2017 Telemark Ski School will celebrate its 34nd 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.  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. This is YOUR year for telemark skiing!



Prerequisites:



You want to be sure you’re conditioned for back country skiing.  You will need to fit and prepared to travel 2,000 feet uphill and 8 miles in the back country.  If you are not fit enough or prepared you will be asked to skip the back country day with no refund.  Plastic telemar ski boots and modern metaledged skis with a minimum wait of 80 mm is required.  XC and XCD ski gear is not appropritae for this school.



Cost does not include ski area lift tickets. They will be available for $35 at the lecture night. 




Notes

“Student/Participant requests for refunds of tuition/fees must be requested in writing to the appropriate school or event director.  Requests made prior to 30 days before the beginning of the school/event will be processed less a $10 handling fee.  Requests made within 30 days of the school/event will be refunded at 50% of the amount paid.  No refunds will be made after the beginning of the school/event.  However, a refund less $10 can be obtained if a person is found to take the original student’s place in a school.”
