Telemark

The most characteristic part of telemark skiing is the heel being free of the ski itself making it necessary to completely bend your legs at the knee to complete a turn. It’s apparent lightness and aesthetic plasticity makes it a very elegant form of skiing that is becoming ever popular. For mountain ski lovers and skiing in general the telemark is well worth a try. The telemark skiing technique was born in Norway in 1825 by Sondre Norheim, also considered the father of modern skiing.

The name telemark comes from the region in Norway of the same name. At the end of the 1900’s this kind of skiing was becoming so popular that competitions were being held and the whole winter ethic kicked in. In the early part of the 20th century alpine skiing was created by fixing the heel to the ski with a binding. It wasn’t until the 1970´s that telemark was restored to life again, this time in North America, it was considered more challenging for skiers because of its complexities.
