Indoor Telemark Ski Races 2015
GB Telemark is running a series of indoor Telemark Ski races May-Sep 2015 throughout UK at indoor snow domes. These events are suitable for Army personnel interested in taking up Telemark Skiing and include the opportunity to receive instruction in Telemark technique and hire Telemark equipment. The races and associated training days represent an ideal opportunity for units to try Telemark skiing prior to committing to the Army Telemark championships to be held in Jan 16:
- 23/24 May, Manchester Chill Factore. Timings for the upcoming Manchester race weekend are as follows:
- Festival: The link to the North West Telemark Festival on Saturday 23rd is here. It is £75 for the day and will start around 9am for kit hire and 10am on the snow. This is organised by the Manchester Cross Country Ski Club.
- Race training: 2-4pm on Saturday 23rd. Ben Langridge will be running this and is not charging anything so the cost of this will be a two hour ski pass (£31) plus any donation you are willing to give to Ben for the coaching. This is separate from the festival.
- Race: On sunday 23rd the racing will kick off around 10am. We will try to finish asap in the afternoon so that you can escape the traffic! £35 entry.
This is unfortunately the bank holiday weekend and last year people got quite snarled up in traffic. The race training will start when most people have arrived but we will aim for a 2pm start on the Saturday. Sorry in advance if we have any delays.
- 27/28 Jun, Tamworth Snow Dome.
- 11/12 Jul, Glasgow, Braehead Snow Factor.
- 22/23 Aug, Hemel Hempstead, The Snow Centre
