Training Camp and Telemark GS Race brought the spirit of free-heel to Caledon Ski Club! Favourable mild weather and excellent snow created ideal conditions for Training Camp coached by Stephane Perreault, Quebec’s Provincial Team Coach and CANSI Level III Course Conductor. Improvement in all participant’s technique and race performance was observed and greatly appreciated. Race on Knight Flight was exceptional, for results click here.
