The hashtag we have all come to know and love on social media again has its day; a day to celebrate the art of telemark and what it stands for, a day where the telemark family is united and strong.
Inspired by the need for telemarkers to have their own day of celebration and founded by Telemark Skier Magazine, World Telemark Day gives skiers the opportunity to come together to celebrate freeing one’s mind by freeing their heels. Where does your telemark skiing take you? Who will you meet on this year’s World Telemark Day?
Telemark Skier Magazine will be celebrating this year’s holiday at Grand Targhee Resort during the 2018 Freeheel Life Cup Championship.
“How do I participate in this worldwide awakening of telemark stoke at my home hill?” you may ask. The answer is simple: grab your friends, spouse, neighbor or mortal enemy and head to the local ski hill or backcountry stash to drop knees with one another. Teach someone to telemark ski, host a film and serve some beer, but most importantly, GO TELE SKIING. Enjoy your turns and share the excitement with the digital community via the #spreadtelemark & #WorldTelemarkDay2018 hashtags. World Telemark Day encourages local factions and sleeper cells to host their own gatherings. Feel free to reach out to Josh Madsen (firstname.lastname@example.org) for ideas on how to best coordinate and tap into the worldwide effort.
