Participant Information

Do you get upset when you go to restaurants and they don't even serve granola?
Do you look at your stiff boots and bindings and long for something more?
Tired of being jealous of all those cool people with the free-heal tele steez?

Then come learn how to tele!

Beginner tele night at the Mount Seymour Lift Area.  Meet at 6pm in front of the Bean Around the World at Parkgate Village (we'll car pool up the hill) , instruction till 8:30 or 9 ish, and some "class follow up" at The Rock Chute Inn.


Since it's tough to first get into a sport without any gear, we've arranged a special rental arrangement that makes it affordable!
Contact me (Alex Gibbs) to learn about the details.
Beginner techniques like the tele turn, body positioning, weighting, and basic edging will be practiced with various drills.
You should feel comfortable going out and practicing on your own after this clinic.
Total cost for lift tickets and rentals will probably be ~$40 before HST  (if we get 10 or more people).
E-mail me to let me know:
 - skiing / snowboarding experience you have (just so I know who I'm teaching... no experience necessary)
 - want to participate in group ticket rates at Mt. Seymour?
 - whether or not you need a ride from somewhere

Not a trip, but a festival (at a resort). Come out and rediscover why tele is the best

This is a fun day of telemarking at Steep Creek, Chief Pascal, Vantage Ridge. Training heals are OK, but discouraged.
