    Telemark Day


    Come and learn Telemark!
    Everyone who knows a little skiing will be welcome from 7/8 years old.
    This day dedicated to telemark is organized by Praz de Lys Sommand Tourisme et Générations Télémark.

    Telemark is one of the oldest skiing techniques, invented in the XIXth century in Norway, making it possible to ski downhill with the free heel (not attached to the ski). The turns are made by bending the inner leg, which gives this practice its remarkable elegance ... to be tested!
    Bring your ski poles for initiation.

    On the program for this day:
    - Telemark initiations
    - Loan of equipment (shoes and skis) by the association Générations Télémark
    - Discovery and technical learning supervised by volunteers of the association on the Farquet track.
