Telemark skiing Learn to ski the old-fashioned way.

The newest ski trend is actually pretty old. A downhill technique from which modern skiing originates, in Telemark skiing, only the toes of the ski shoes are bound to the board. This means skiers can lift up the heel of the rear foot and almost kneel as they continue down the piste. If you fancy trying something different, contact the ski schools in Saas-Fee and Saas-Grund who will be more than happy to show you the ropes.
