Telemark – the beginning of skiing
Nowadays, quite often you can see Telemark adherents, which carve with elegance and sentimental contact to their skies on the slopes.
Sometimes they are vested with traditional Tyrolienne cloths. Telemark is the oldest technic of parallel skiing and comes from Norge in 1886 and becomes very popular in Europe.
The main difference of normal skiing is that the shoe is only fixed on the front of the binding. Learning telemark is difficult; you need power, condition and balance. Therefore the oldest form of skiing isn’t going to be a sport of mass.
