The Telemark ski is a technique that was born in the first half of the 800.
In Telemark just the tip of the foot (avampiede) is connected, through a special attack, ski. For bending the skier must push forward the downstream leg and bend the knee of the leg upstream, almost “kneeling” on skiing. The weight is distributed evenly between the two slopes.
