Volunteers wanted for Telemark Ski Your Best Project (Updated) Posted on Jan 18th, 2007


CANSI is looking for volunteers to work on the Telemark Ski Your Best Project.

The project’s goal is to produce an instructional program administered by CANSI-certified instructors to skiers who want to improve their technique, but who don’t want to become certified instructors. Participants achieve different levels based on the skills they demonstrate in different telemark maneuvers. The different levels are designed to be motivational for students, while giving instructors objective skills criteria for dividing students into lessons.
