Sunday telemark clinics at the festival

Richard Hocking is the Telemark Technical Director at the Australian Professional Snowsport Instructors (APSI) and a Telemark member of the APSI demo team. The demo team attends Interski, a world congress for snowsports instruction every four years, with the next congress in Finland in March 2023.

To help spread telemark and raise funds to help the Demo team get to the next interski, Richard will be available at the Backcountry Festival to present on snow telemark clinics in the resort. The whole idea is to promote APSI, and telemark instruction from Australian snowsports schools as a way to help improve people’s telemark skiing.

There will be 3 clinics running for 2 hours each on the Sunday (September 8).

Hocking_2The 9:00am and 11:00am clinics will be targeted at intermediate Telemark skiers. These clinics will work on improving how you balance on your skis and make your turns more fluid and controlled.

A more advanced clinic for 2 hours will work on making your skiing more versatile to get more performance from your skis on the groomed and off piste.

Please note you will need a lift pass and your own gear for these sessions.
