Telemark Youth Initiative

The goal of the Telemark Youth Initiative is to introduce young racers to telemark skiing with the ultimate goal of producing athletes to compete in FIS Telemark World Cup races.

TSO has a trailer with skis and numerous pairs of boots covering sizes 23.0 to 29.5 (with multiple pairs in most sizes) to accommodate a racing team and their coach. (All of our equipment is 75 mm.)

The program usually starts with alpine turns as a warm-up and progresses to the telemark. We encourage racers to end their day back on their alpine gear.

The sessions are free for racers with a TSO membership ($15 for an annual membership). There will is no charge for their coaches.

Please see the main TSO web site page for the equipment waiver and TSO membership forms.

This program was made possible through generous financial and ski industry partners like Genuine Guide Gear, Volkl Skis, Scarpa, Druxy’s Fresh Deli Revolution, and KUU and MEC.
