Telemark at Bromley
Kåre Andersen’s 29th annual Telemark Race and Festival, showcasing the top free-heel skiers in the northeast on Sunday, February 23, serves as a fitting warm-up to the United States Telemark Ski Association’s (USTSA) National Championships at Bromley on Thursday and Friday, February 27 and 28. “This is really wonderful timing,” said Bill Cairns, Bromley President and avid telemark skier. “Kåre’s Festival offers a great cram-course on teleskiing for competitors and spectators , with races and clinics for all ages and abilities. Anyone interested in coming up to watch or compete in the National Championships on the 27th and 28th couldn’t ask for a better primer.” The USTSA National Championships is the premier telemark event in the country, bringing at least 36 Elite US men’s and women’s team members from all across America to the two day competition. Combined, all classes, including the citizen’s class, will field between 50 and 80 racers. The overall winners will be crowned National Champions on Friday evening. The public is invited to test their skills against the nation’s best at both Kåre’s Festival and the USTSA National Championships. Bromley is located on Route 11 in Peru.
