Free-Heel Fridays

The 2021 season unfortunately closes for Ski Telemark as Mt. St. Louis Moonstone is closed tomorrow, March 26th

The three FREE-HEEL Fridays we did get were magical. Being on snow was dreamy and uplifting! 

We extend our special thanks to Robert & Sarah Huter, Andre Huter & Jim Morris of Mt. St. Louis Moonstone Resort for the MOST AWESOME of EXPERIENCES!!!


Please join us for Free-Heel Fridays at Mount St. Louis Moonstone commencing March 5th. Please remember to pre-purchase your lift ticket. Covid Protocols are in effect.

The following video shows the Covid-19 Protocols in place at MSLM in December 2020.

A Fellow Free-Heeler took action, created this video clip to bring awareness and attention to the HUGE investment and efforts taken to protect and serve the snowsport public to keep us out on snow!!!

Cheri Doman

Ski Telemark and Instructors are deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the recent passing of long-time supporter: Cheri Doman of SOJOURN on December 7th, 2020.

Cheri will be remembered fondly by hosting our annual Ski Telemark evenings and SOJOURN’s ongoing support of telemark skiing in southern Ontario. 

Cheri leaves a beautiful legacy with her deceased husband Mike Moran for their shared and great passion for the outdoors, adventure, play and the vision and joy they gave to sooo many through their outdoor retail store: SOJOURN in Barrie, Ontario.

SOJOURN will continue to strive and embody the spirit of Cheri & Mike moving forward into 2021, please express your condolences and thoughts when visiting to staff!
