  • The trip to Frey - Interski - Part 8 - 16/09/2015 | Telemark Phat
    had been washed away After my first glimpse of Rock Inclinada and Torre El Pyramid the trail steepened and some sections were pretty slippery in my sneakers but the cold dissuaded me from putting on my boots The trail flattened out where it crossed Arroyo Van Titter Van Titter Ck and with some sunshine I transitioned to skis and skis for the remainder of the walk After a little while I came across a cute little emergency hut Refugio Piedritas and a small memorial The hut was built into a giant boulder The views continued to stun and the tall Legna Beech forest had a great atmosphere After passing an avalanche path on the side of Pico Barra the trail started climbing again until it reached Lago Toncek and Refugio Frey Taking the walk was a good choice my flu was back and I spent the afternoon chatting with other visitors and admiring the stunning view out the windows The reports of rock hard conditions didn t make me push myself to go out and ski a line either An unexpected surprise for an Australian visitor was the refuge s cat Emilio Emilio was named after the huts founder Emilio Frey and he had the rule of the roost both inside and out The famous sign designating the trail head to Refugio Frey Spindrift on Catedral Norte The slopes of Cerro Catedral up to Punta Nevada Half an hour down three and a half to go No puppies Snow covered track Po de los Paraliticos Catedral Norte behind the Legna Beech Looking east to Bariloche Cana colihue Catedral Norte Lago Gutierrez and Bariloche Icy waterfall Icey sticks The bridge is gone but the sign remains Cerro Lopez Typical bridge Burnt Legna Beech from a recent fire My first glimpse of

  • The Guts of it - Interski - Part 6 - 10-12/09/15 | Telemark Phat
    early lead change at the top of the turn Their teaching style relies heavily on analogy and to communicate ideas and movements The Slovenian workshop was on carving and revealed the strong race focus in Slovenian Telemarking They ski with a long stance a quick lead change at the top of the turn and with as much of their weight as possible on the front ski After a day in bed I was back at it for the closing ceremony and Italy s workshop on Friday The Italians have changed their style a lot in recent years with a tighter stance and less rotation in their skiing The Italians focus on even weighting with steering coming from the telemark movement and some hip rotation The Italians showed off their new first turn which involves a snowplow into the fall line then the skis are bought into parallel and the turn is finished off in a telemark It s as confusing as it sounds For the closing ceremony the Telemarkers abandoned their national teams and instead did an international demo as the Telemark Nation Micahel Turek s demo run for Cezch The Finnish Nordic skier joined in on the Demo Slope The Finns had Santa on their team The was so much snow the Agentinian Team became old fashioned groomers The US Telemarkers Scottie Mcgee Jim Shaw and Ross Matlock Greg McIntyre in the New Zealand Workshop on teaching telemark to Alpine Crossovers The Slovenians demonstrating their front foot weighting during a tug of war edging drill The Slovenian style Roberto Parisi in the Italian Workshop Yas Kawasaki from Canada Telemark Nation Monte Olivia on the drive to the Airport Interski was an amazing event and I suggest anyone with an interest in snowsports technique go to the next Interski at

  • Demo Day! - Interski - Part 5 - 09/09/15 | Telemark Phat
    a hitch and the fog covering the top of the slope for our first two runs took the pressure off slightly I have to say the excitement and the added element of performing to an audience made those four runs four of the best runs of my life After the demo runs the Swiss ran a workshop on getting kids into telemark The workshop taught the telemark stance with telemark tugs of war and telemark fencing which was very cool Then turning was very briefly covered so the progression could return to games The next fun exercises were the tele dog and switch The Swiss start the kids off with tricks before they worry too much about technique to try and retain kids interest in telemark and keep it fun To finish off Frederick Thomas took us through the Telemark Tip Roll and he even managed one without poles In the evening there were Telemark Presentations by Cezch and Italy The Cezch TD Michael Turek presented on his experiment using EMG and pressure sensitive footbeds to see which muscles fired when in a telemark turn and how pressure was applied to the foot was interesting The calves quadriceps and glutes were used the most and Telemark skiers put less pressure on the footbeds than Alpine skiers and put more pressure on the ball of their feet The Italian presentation was on their new manual in introductory Telemark Turn Their manual has been well published but their presentation was disappointingly Italian Sadly they used google translate to translate their presentation and got Siri to read it for them Snowing at Cerro Castor The team ready to roll Snowy Chair Lift Ride Last minute practice It was about boot deep About to start our 1st Run Canada Italy the US and Cezch

    running each one twice so everyone could see everything the Americans and I volunteered to present on the first day Andorra did not present and the Norwegian delegates were not permitted to present which was disappointing The Americans presented on the Lead Change which has replaced stance in their skills model The Americans talked about changing lead ski the duration of the lead change the timing of the lead change and fore aft weighting of the lead change For the APSI Telemark Presentation I stayed on the Teams theme of Connection Since people who want to learn Telemark are typically people who already learnt to slide on snow and are looking for a new challenge I didn t focus on connecting the guest with the alpine experience Instead I focussed on how Telemark connects with the other disciplines Alpine Snowboard Nordic and Adaptive to more effectively train Instructors and to make the transition to telemark more enjoyable for guests I presented on how in Australia all the disciplines use the same conceptual model about how to ski how to teach guests to ski and how to train instructors to teach guests our approach is unusual internationally I was happy that my workshop was able to generate some vigorous discussion especially separating the telemark movement from rotary skills when turning the skis and the long duration of our lead change After the workshops the telemarkers had another chance for some free skiing with freshies Looking down a snowy Avenue San Martin A snowy Ushuia Cerro Del Medio and Cerro Don Banderas Casa Del Gobinero the Town Hall Cerro Esfinge Vincent Folguera Camats and Alex from Andorra Tom Kjøde from Norway Kjetil Birkeland Moe from Norway Cerro Bonete Cerro Krund My Workshop Telemarkers with a view Ross Matlock from the USA in

    and there was chaos on the slope above the demo hill with plenty of teams falling and colliding on the super hard snow Our run went well and it was great to be able to watch the rest of the teams ski from the bottom rather than from behind a crest at the top of the run The best runs were by the Argentinians Swiss and Austrians The Cezchs and the Swiss had the best telemarkers with some impressive recoveries by some teams in the difficult conditions After the opening the Telemarkers got together for a ski which was an absolute blast Some more of the stunning scenery on the drive up to Cerro Castor Alighting for our first demo run The first Australian Demo Run Me at the end of our run The Italian Snowboarders and Telemarkers It seemed like all of Finland went in their run The Swiss had some great Telemarkers in their run A guy on the original Argentinian Ski Telemarkers from all over the world Cerro Krug with some spindrift Andreas Reidle the German TD The opening day was a cracker and I think that demo run was one of the more thrilling runs of

    mountain was mostly rock hard We found a few drifts of fresh snow in the alpine area but it was hard to find amongst all of the Cerrado Closed and Peligro caution signs After a couple of warm up runs we trained by the dual poma on the Albatros and Petrel runs in difficult conditions and we saw more than a few stacks amongst the other teams training on the same slope Once we were happy with our synchro runs we got to have some time on the actual Demo Slope at the base of the Mountain on the Halcon Peregrino run Cerro Castor has a racing focus and is used as a training slope by European World Cup Tems The French were there during Interski and Halcon Peregrino is prepared for them so it was as hard as hard can be With our two runs we had a taste of what we d be skiing on in the opening ceremony the next day Mountains from the Cerro Castor Car Park The View to the South West of Cerro Castor The View to the South West of Cerro Castor The View from the top of the Las Piedras Midstation View from the top of the Las Piedras Chair More panorama goodness Still more stunning views from the top of Cerro Krund The View from the top of the Pomas Legna Beech with another pretty hill Pauly and Langers at the top of the Poma Having a chat on the Pomas Legna and Cerro Cineco Hermanos The view down Liquen Cerro Cineco Hermanos behind Pajaro Carpintero Cerro Alvear Still stunned by the scenery we were all pumped for interski to start the next day Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8 Part9
