Telemark skiing or Telemarking is becoming popular because it feels ‘free-er’ than alpine skiing and it still works really well on or off-piste.
Here at Big White we offer Private Coaching in Telemark Skiing with our certified Instructors. Mark Takanen is CANSI certified and has been instructing Telemark for 12 years in Europe, Canada & USA. As well as being a Telemark Free Ski and Race competitor he is also Vice President of BC Telemark Ski Association.
Chad Devenish has been teaching Telemark for 6 seasons. After being introduced to Telemark as a child, he has toured extensively in the Australian Back-country. He is passionate about sharing the Free-Heel experience from the the First Time introduction to the sport to an Intermediate level. He is NZSIA Telemark Level 1 certified and is available on Request.
The greatest misunderstanding is that you can only do Telemark turn on free-heel equipment. In fact, plows, plow-parallels and parallel turns are all possible and EASY! That’s why it’s also called 'Free-heel Downhill'.
"Free your mind, free your soul, free your heel"
