Telemark Community

The main goal of this site is to foster a center for the telemark community in Australia beyond excellent overseas sites such as Telemark Tips and local forums such as the Backcounty Forum.

If you have any news or events I miss please help build the Telemark Community in Australia and let me know so I can post it.


17th of July 2009 - Scarpa Announce NTN Beta testing a sucess

I'm a bit late with this. I don't know if it is true but Craig Dostie posted on Telemark Tips a press release from Scarpa USA. Scarpa issued skiers who broke their NTN boots with new boots built with new moulds and plastics. Scarpa claim with the changes their boots are finally reliable and will be available in our Spring. I hope the release is true and NTN can continue to improve telemark skiing.
