Many thanks for a great fest!! Check out www.telemarkeast.com for pictures.
Here is a video from the fest.
Demos- Many of the telemark companies will be represented and you will have a chance to demo the newest gear for free!
• Sponsors -At the heart of every great organization there must be a dedicated group of people. Along with our instructors and volunteers are our sponsors. Where would we be without them? They help us out financially but more than that, many of them are right there at the festivals with us, giving the public a chance to try out all the newest and best telemark gear. To them we have dedicated a 'sponsor page' with descriptions of their products and links to their web pages. All our thanks to our Gold Sponsors, Garmont and Voile as well as sponsors Backcountry Mag, Telemark Skier, Black Diamond, Flylow and TwentyTwo Design for their support.
Lessons - NET is a PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) member ski school (the only PSIA telemark school in the country) and most of our instructors are members of PSIA. All are highly trained and motivated. We want our clinics to be fun most of all but to hopefully give you a chance to improve your skiing in an enjoyable, free spirited atmosphere. All clinics are 1 1/2 hours long and are free (with festival lift ticket)! Clinic times for this festival will be once in the morning only at 10:30. We will run ski posse's and request privates in the afternoon. (Privates are also available in the morning)
Special morning clinics will include;
Crossover clinics for alpine skiers coming to Telemark.
•KIDS clinics for the young. We have the gear and the instructor, Grant Braddish. Grant is a dad and has been teaching K-6 graders to ski with the Junior Instructional Ski Program in VT since the 01-02 ski season.
• Beginner, beginner/intermediate, intermediate, intermediate/advanced, advanced
Women's Clinics. Women teaching women. Some of NET's top women instructors will be leading clinics both days.
Masters Clinics. Taught by our educational staff, this is the clinic for the master skier.
• THE BIG KAHUNA SKI POSSE!!! Not a clinic but rather an opportunity to gather with other tele skiers and ski as a group. NET instructors will be the group leaders. We will have ONE BIG KAHUNA POSSE!!! and once again will try to do the largest syncro turn ever.
• Private lessons. We have had requests for private lessons at the festivals and will make them available at any time during the day (depending on instructor availability). The cost is $50 and hour or $140 for a half day..
Our always popular and amusing costume contest. With spring weather we are expecting a good turnout of costumed tele skiers.
Party - Jah Spirit will be playing. Festivities start at 3:30 and the raffle and prizes begins at 4.
Tickets - We will charge whatever the Bretton Woods lift ticket price is. . Season pass holders and any other special coupons are an additional $25 to join the fest. With that you do get a free beer and raffle ticket.
