Telemark ski style is an awesome way how to ski as the first skiers did. The diference between normal and telemark skiing is that your heel on telemark ski sis free, simile as on cross country skis. Turns are led by outer ski, where your heel touch your ski, appart from the inner ski, where your heel is lifted and your knee is bend backwards.
The roots of telemarks skiing are dated back to 1868, when Norwegian skier Sondre Norheim, show an imposant run in some competition. This „Norheim style“ quickly spread around Europe. The technique was called according the name of place where it was first ridden in the competition – Telemark. As one of the oldest and from our point of view the most stylish ski style, we higly recomend to give it a try!
