The US Telemark Ski Association (USTSA) and Suicide Six have teamed up to bring a FIS Telemark World Cup to South Pomfret, Vermont in January 2018! As the home of skiing in New England, it is only fitting that Telemark, skiing's original form, should come to Suicide Six.
Kicking off with an opening ceremony on Friday January 19th, the racing will begin on Saturday January 20th with a Sprint Classic race. Sunday the 21st will bring Telemark's newest format, the Dual Sprint, which puts the world's best Telemark skiers on the hill at the same time, competing head to head in parallel courses. The event will conclude on Monday January 22nd with another Sprint Classic!
It is expected that athletes from; Great Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Slovenia, Japan, Canada, the United States and others will all be present to compete. Furthermore, the events will be filmed and streamed through the Olympic Channel's website and Facebook Live platforms.
Admission to the events is free but we do hope that you will register to help us gauge attendance and plan accordingly! In addition, we also have a RallyMe campaign set up to help finance the event. Any contribution you make will help us to put on the best event possible!
