Karbon Telemark National Championships (FIS) – Crotched Mountain, NH
March 9 @ 8:00 am – March 11 @ 5:00 pm
This three day event at Crotched Mountain Resort, NH is open to all levels of Telemark skiers. We have a race category for men and women Citizens, Juniors and Experts. Join us for one day or all three. This will be a FIS points race for those expert competitors holding a FIS license. This is the highlight of the season, so put it on your calendar now! If you only attend one event this season, Nationals is always a great time with fellow Tele skiers.
Speedsuits are not necessary, but helmets are required.
Schedule for the weekend:
Friday March 9 – Classic
2 Classic races were originally scheduled for Friday, but due to the snow conditions, the decision was made to change this event to a Sprint Classic race. This change may not be reflected on the registration page.
Saturday March 10 – Sprint Classic
The Sprint Classic contains gates, a jump, Rap and a skate section. It consists of two runs with the times and penalties totaled together to determine the winner.
Sunday March 11 – Parallel Sprint Qualifiers and Parallel Sprint Race
The Parallel Sprint is the most exciting to watch of all of the telemark racing events. Two Sprint-length courses are set, and racers compete side by side in a tournament-style elimination bracket. Racers fly off the same jump and are funneled in the same Rap before having to skate it out on the flats. Penalties are totaled live on the hill, and racers are required to skate further if they have gate or jump penalties. Bring on course carnage and head-to-head competition!
