Holly Blefgen – director

For me, telemark skiing is a beautiful dance on snow! With it’s versatility and adaptability to terrain and snow conditions, the inherent rhythms of the telemark turn distinguish each individual telemark skier’s performance and style. Through this understanding, I emphasize skiing with feeling the snow under foot, discovering one’s own signature, and mastering all skiing techniques on one set of equipment. Skiing becomes an artistic and athletic expression of self.
