Hey freeheelers - we've some great events lined up for you this winter.
Dates: Sunday night August 11th - Friday August 16th
Last years Telemark Week was so successful that we're running it again. This is a great opportunity for freeheelers to get together, "chew the fat", get in some great turns and touch up on your technique.
We'll be offering lessons through the week. Our two broken River Telemark instructors, Claire and Jim will be giving lessons during the week. The lessons will provide you with a "toolbox" of techniques to suit a variety of conditions and terrain - and all abilities.
Lessons will be available during the week with three included in the Skiweek package outlined below. For day visitors or people on shorter packages standard lessons rates apply.
Private lessons are also available. Find out more about our ski lesson rates here.
Price: The best deal is by booking our special Sunday-to-Saturday 6 night/7 day package, which includes 3 complimentary group lessons (does not include instruction given in the Telemark Off-Piste Skills Course).
Standard accommodation rates apply if you can only stay a few nights.
Who can attend: The telemark week is open to anyone, including those who would like to learn to telemark. Thanks to R & R Sport we have a limited amount of telemark gear (skis and boots) for hire at a very minimal rate. So if you are interested hiring gear please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're planning some fun social activities through the week and if conditions are right might be able to tour over to some neighbouring basins.

NZSIA Telemark Level One Instructor's Course - UNAVAILABLE IN 2013
Our telemark instructors personally recommend this course!
Great instructors, excellent value - imagine having your own personal trainer for 3 full days! An awesome course that will certainly improve your own skiing out of sight. Last years course at Broken River was outstanding.
What is the Telemark Level One Course? This is a three-day course that is designed for those looking to begin instructing telemark skiing and develop their own telemark skills. This certification gives you the ability to teach beginners, BUT because it has a large focus on personal development it is an outstanding course if you just want to improve your own telemark skiing.
For pricing and more details: You'll find all the details on our Broken River Telemark Level One Course page.
(If you come for the whole telemark week you will only be required to pay the NZSIA course fee as your acommodation and lift costs will already covered).
We'd love to see you there for this great week of Telemark events!
If you have any questions please email us at email@example.com.
here's to a great 2013 winter!
