Army Telemark Championship Moves to Mürren Switzerland
ATSA are delighted to announce that the 2016 Telemark Championships will be held in Mürren, Switzerland. The dates will be 6-18 Jan 2016. Mürren, situated in the heart of the Bernese Oberland with 52km of piste at an altitude 1600 -2970m, is a car free picturesque location with fantastic views and excellent skiing facilities, that has significant experience in running major skiing events (2015 Telemark World Cup, the ‘Inferno’ downhill) as well as being the spiritual home of modern skiing (Arnold Lunn developed the modern skiing industry here nearly 100 years ago).
We are saddened to be leaving Rauris, after 8 years of wonderful support and the relationships we have developed but are much looking forward to building a new era for British Telemark. Mürren has much to offer off the piste as well as on, with excellent facilities ranging from the legendary James Bond restaurant at Piz Gloria atop the Schilthorn, through excellent leisure and fitness facilities (inside and on the ice rink and toboggan trails) to a large variety of mountain hospitality. We look forward to seeing you there.
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:
- 27/28 Jun, Tamworth Snow Dome. - Festival: (Sat 28th all day) – see poster.
- Roller skiing: (Sun 29th morning) - see flyer.
- Racing: (Sun 29th afternoon)
Please note this will be an AFTERNOON race. The slope shuts for two hours over lunch time and I imagine the race will start around 2pm. Please sign up for the race via the British Telemark website.
- 11/12 Jul, Glasgow, Braehead Snow Factor.
- 22/23 Aug, Hemel Hempstead, The Snow Centre
