Successful Broken River Telemark Week

August 14, 2016 Share on Facebook

Dry packed powder, blue skies and sheltered weather made for ideal conditions for the inaugural Broken River Telemark Week held August 1-5th.  

We were incredibly fortunate to have two examiners from the Telemark Division of the New Zealand Ski  Instructors Alliance (NZSIA) as guest instructors for the week. Everyone's skiing improved greatly as the week progressed.

Three of the participants completed and passed the Level One Telemark Instructors' Course - well done Claire, Tom and John.

We'll be running a Telemark Week in 2012 - read all about the 2011 Broken River Telemark Week here.

The week finished on a high-note with the annual R & R Sport Freeheel Fun Weekend. Participants braved the foggy and wet conditions on Saturday morning for some fun events, including synchronised skiing and a human slalom. The weather improved in the afternoon in time to enjoy the new snow before the Tele Cross Event.

Clinics with Greg and Marti were the highlight for Sunday. Read full details about the 2011 R & R Sport Freeheel Fun Weekend here.

Thanks to our sponsors R & R Sport, Black Diamond and CHILL, as well as our guest instructors Greg McIntyre and Marti Smith.
