Telemark

This discipline was born in "Telemark" Norway's region from which it takes name, dates back to the second half of the 1800s and consists of skiing in a particular way. Unlike traditional skis, the skiboots, in this case, is fixed to the skis only at the tip, leaving the heel free


The skier, to maintain the balance during the curve, must make a movement similar to a genuflection with the internal ski.
