A great GS race on Devil’s Staircase was held at Mansfield Ski Club followed by training and demo of the new NTN binding system brought in by SOJOURN. Special thanks to Mansfield Ski Club for their efforts and our sponsors: MEC, White Squall, The Weathervane and Rossignol.
Wow! We must have been close to Acton, as it was well worth the drive to the ski hill today. Thanks goes out to all the brave souls who travelled the highways and bi-ways to get to the race. We had a bit of a delay due to the weather, and were well rewarded with great conditions. The race course had to be slipped numerous times during inspection just to remove the POW! The race was very exciting and some of the gates definitely tested our skill. The race was followed by gate training, with assistance from Caledon Alpine Director Bill Yeigh. During the afternoon TSO members had the chance to roam the park and skier cross course to add some cross-training and test their mettle. Awards Ceremony and Schwag closed the day’s events.
Thank-you to Caledon Ski Club for hosting the race today and also all of our wonderful sponsors.
Free your Heel, Free your Spirit!
Thanks to all who came out to Ski Telemark’s final weekend. We did have sun for the training day and the rain held out during the race. Despite the weather, Holly still had to corral the telemarkers to start the awards. Full results are now available and photos have been posted!
