The Telemark Tracks website has a nice summary of all the 2015 events. Last year they also produced video footage from the races which were published on their website and Facebook page check out their website to give you an idea of what to expect from the series.
Telemark Festivals: There will be a telemark festival on the Saturday before the races (except Hemel, which will run race on Saturday and festival on Sunday). At the festivals there will be opportunities to have coaching from top BASI instructors, and ski with the British Team. ***Different format for Hemel, see flier for details.

Race Training: There will be a two hour race training session on each of the festival days. If you attend the festival your ski pass will cover you to take part in the race training at no extra cost. If you would like to take part in the race training only you can buy a two hour ski pass on the day. We ask that you can telemark linked turns if you wish to take part in this. The race training will usually run in the afternoon from 2-4pm. ***Different format for Hemel, see flier for details.

Competitors times from two runs will be combined and the events are run under British Telemark Rules. For more detailed information of the races see our Race Notes.
