Telemark Skier Magazine – November 23, 2016
Lifestyle brand Freeheel Life announced today that March 2-5, 2017 will be the dates for it’s signature event the Freeheel Life Cup at Grand Targhee Resort. The premiere big mountain event will coincide this year with the Karbon Nationals Telemark Race as well as the 3rd annual World Telemark Day celebration.
“We have been working hard the past 12 months to create an event that combines not only the competitive disciplines of tee, but a gathering spot for telemarkers that want to enjoy a weekend dropping knees together,” said Freeheel Life owner Josh Madsen. He continued saying “This weekend will have something for everyone: competition, demos, clinics, racing, etc. And most importantly we are going to cap it all off with a World Telemark Day party!”
Both the Freeheel Life Cup and Karbon Nationals will be governed by the United States Telemark Ski Association (USTSA). USTSA has newly formed a Freeski Division to compliment it’s involvement with FIS level telemark racing.

Robinson, the newly appointed director of the USTSA Freeski Division. “The combination of all of these events in one place signifies great things for telemark moving forward.”
