Tele Tribe at The Canyons

by Utah Author January 30 2008 0 Comments

Telemark skiing has come such a long way from the leather lace up boots that I learned on during the winter of '92 to today's equipment like the new Black Diamond tele boots which aren't far from alpine boots made by Rossignol or other manufacturers. So it only makes sense that more and more people are trying telemark skiing. But those that are trying it aren't limited to the granola munching tree hugging adult crowd. Kids are getting in on the action too.

telemark-skier (telemark-skier)With the snow finally falling hard the Tele Tribe – Park City’s local youth telemark ski club – is in full swing. This past Saturday, club organizers Hank Keil and Jaimie Atlas along with The Canyons Resort athlete, Shaun Raskin took to the slopes with an energetic group of young skiers and guest coaches for their fourth weekend this season. The group worked on technique, all-mountain skiing and even showed off a few tricks in the terrain park.

The Tele Tribe meets each Sunday at noon at The Canyons Resort’s Red Pine Lodge. All abilities and ages are welcome but they say that grades 6 to 9 have been the most strongly represented. Never tried tele? No problem as never-evers are welcome but you should contact the Tele Tribe in advance. Cost is $30 dollars per Sunday plus a seasonal insurance fee. Discounted equipment rentals available at White Pine Touring in Park City.
