Weekend Pick: High Country Telemark Festival

first_imgBeech MountainAlpine skiing isn’t the only way to enjoy the slopes. Shake up your ski season and lift up your heels – it’s tele-time.This Saturday, February 7, Beech Mountain Resort in North Carolina will host the 5th Annual High Country Telemark Festival. Telemark, the mother of all contemporary ski methods, combines today’s Alpine and Nordic approaches. The idea is pretty simple: take an Apline-style ski, strap on Nordic-style bindings, and hit the snow. The actual execution? Maybe not so simple, but Beech Mountain is here to show you the ropes and celebrate all the fun that a little extra effort can bring.The festival will run from registration time at 8:30 Saturday morning to 4 PM that afternoon, and offers skill clinics for skiers of all levels, a gear swap, group skiing, raffles, and the ever-essential commemorative t-shirt. Plus, Friday night will feature a pre-event party at Footsloggers in Boone, N.C., to pump up the early birds with some extra psych for the big day.The whole day runs for $50 per person, and includes all of the above plus a lift ticket and mountain-top Bald Guy Brew coffee.
