Description:

****AS OF JANUARY 17TH WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING SIGN UPS****

 

Are you interested in learning how to free your soul utterly and completely? It's as simple as telemark skiing... at least once you figure out how. Whether you've never skied before or are a tele expert, Tele School is a great opportunity to come practice your soul-freeing and free-heeling, or help induct others into our cult community. Not only is tele-skiing incredibly fun and graceful, most of our ski rental fleet is telemark. 

Conveniently hosted before Intro to Backcountry and Burns n Turns so you can flex on everyone else with your new tele skills! 

This event will take place at Seymour Mountain on the North Shore. Groups will be organized with a teacher based on the following skill levels: 

Beginner 1 - You have never skied - or almost never. 

Beginner 2 - Know how to do snowplow AND parallel turn on downhill skis, but never telemarked. 

Intermediate - Know how to do a telemark turn, and can link them on low angle runs. 

Expert - You should help instruct :)

 $$: You will need to pay for a lift ticket, and each group will be responsible for paying for their instructor's ticket (they are volunteering their time after all).  The tickets will be approximately $60-65 (your ticket + portion of instructor's ticket- we will know exact amount closer to date), and instructors will be free! Attendance on this trip will be limited by the number of instructors, so the earlier you pay the better your chances are of snagging yourself a spot. 

PAYMENT: You can pay at the pretrip, please bring around $70 or e-transfer me, I will have change with me (since Seymour's bulk rate is a staircase model I have no way of knowing exactly how much payment I need until I know the exact number of people going). 

If you have any questions, I will set up a message board thread, or you are very welcome to email me directly.
