Description:

 

After a year-long COVID hiatus, tele school is back!

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. 

This event will take place at Grouse 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 telemark skied. 

Intermediate - Know how to do a telemark turn, and want to improve technique/linking turns.  

Expert - You should help instruct :)

All levels - If you have a car, PLEASE indicate this. This trip is obviously only going to happen if we can all make our way up to the hill. We may not need all the cars who have signed up, but we want to know that we have space for everyone!

Here's what it looks like for a rough idea: 

Left: me, some Duffey backcountry turns. Right: not me duh. But this is what we can all aspire to be. PC: Mikael Garcin

Co$$$t: You will need to pay for a reduced cost 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 $65-70 (your ticket + portion of instructor's ticket- we will know exact amount closer to date), and instructors will be free! Of course, tack on a few bucks for gas costs for your driver.

Payment: TBA, likely will just be e-transferring me as I will be paying for all bulk tickets. This may sound sketchy, but as the treasurer, that's what yall did to pay your membership fees all of COVID anyways.

If you have questions you think someone else might have, please post on the message board thread! Of course, feel free to email me directly too.
