Try telemarking…

Mon August 17, 2015

I promise you won’t regret it!

3 years ago, whilst working a season, I regularly watched in awe as telemark skiers swept gracefully across the piste. As an experienced skier, and having already tried snowboarding (which I didn’t particularly take to) I wondered whether I would ever be able to master this original and oldest form of skiing. I really wanted to give something else a go and experience a new challenge.

You never know until you try...

I decided to take the plunge and booked myself a lesson. I won’t lie, it was tricky to get your head around at first: which knee to bend on which turn and the trickiest part was having the confidence to take the plunge and feel out of your depths. After 2 hours of falling, aching and thinking (a lot), I had mastered a few consecutive turns. I had fallen in love with it! I was absolutely hooked! It was amazing to experience the adrenaline again that you first had when you started out skiing.

My advice; enjoy the free heel and give it a go… you won’t want to go back.
