Crystal Mountain – Sleeping Bear Telemark Festival – March 20, 2011

Drop in for a few turns…
Grab your tele boards and head for Crystal Mountain Sunday, March 20 for the annual Sleeping Bear Telemark Festival. Produced by telemark skiers for telemark skiers, this grassroots event was built on the idea of welcoming new skiers to the sport and celebrating with old friends – all in the same day! The event runs during regular lift hours: 9 am – 6 pm.

Join the herd! When the sun is high in the sky, we’ll do the customary “Mountain Tour,” followed by some fun on Buck: the “World’s Largest Tele Turn,’ the “Yo-Yo” and other on-the-snow hijinks.

Try out some gear! Josh and the crew from The Outfitter in Harbor Springs will have a selection of demo skis and boots available to check out – and purchase if so desired.

Looking to give telemark skiing a try? The Crystal Mountain Snowsports School offers telemark lessons and rental gear. Call 800-968-7686 ext. 2000 for more info.

Check out an excellent telemark film! Josh Madsens’The Freeheel Life 2: Hippies, Punx, and Misfits will be showing in the Vista bar at Crystal at 4:00 pm.
