    Name: Telemark Skiing in Bessemer MI
    Date: January 24, 2022
    Time: 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM CST
    Event Description:
    Telemark skiing is arguably one of the most elegant of skiing styles. You’ll expand your skiing skills repertoire with this class designed to teach all the basics of quintessential Telemark skiing for those free-the-heel, smooth-as-butter turns.

    We’ll cover the basics such as how to enter and exit turns, link turns, transition from one lead ski to the other, and use proper body position and weight distribution. Since Telemark skiing is a blend of both downhill and cross-country skiing, participants should have experience in at least one of these styles of skiing. Instructor Dan Clausen is known as one of the top tele
    instructors in the country and is commonly sought out by both cross-country and downhill certified instructors to learn the impeccable grace of the tele turn.
