Telemark

"The world's oldest new sport"

Are you bored with skiing or boarding and fancy a new challenge?
Telemark is one of the oldest ski techniques and is named after the Norwegian province Telemarken, where this technique was developed around 1860. With the development of modern equipment Telemark skiing faded away. The Telemark-sport reappeared in the USA in the 80's, found its way back to Europe and has become increasingly popular.


Learn this fascinating sport with the instructors of the Swiss Ski- & Snowboard School Nendaz. The Telemark's possibilities are unlimited. You will start with the pistes, but after some time you will be looking for more challenges such as: mogul pistes, steep slopes, powder, races, jumps, etc.

Telemark is also perfect for ski hikes and ski tours.
