Â The High Country Nordic Association presents the 4th Annual Tele Fest on February 8, 2014 from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM.
The celebration allows downhill Nordic skiers a chance to celebrate the beautiful Telemark turn at Beech Mountain Resort. The ‘telemark’, is a dipping, dance-like turn that Nordic skiers can execute, because only their toe is attached to the ski binding. In its third year, the event is now the leading regional opportunity for ‘tele-ski’ enthusiasts to meet, ski together, improve their skills, and win great prizes. Prizes are provided from a long list of outdoor gear suppliers. Telefest events include a poker run, skinning race (skin-up and race down through gates), beacon search, best costume, switch riding, best tele-trick.
