Telemark & Randonee Ski Classes
The Washington Alpine Club Telemark / Randonee series offers Telemark and Randonee ski instruction at all levels to WAC members. The six week series is held Wednesday nights at Summit West at Snoqualmie Pass.
The lesson series is designed to develop your skiing skill so you can ski with more confidence and enjoyment. Each lesson in the series builds on what was learned in the previous session. The instructor's observations and feedback on your movements will help you take your skiing to a new level. Classes are organized by ability level – Often classmates develop into good ski buddies.
Classes times are from: 7:30PM to 9:30PM on Wednesday nights
Dates: For the 2013 program the dates are January 9, 16, 23, 30 & February 6, 13
Gear: For telemark skiers plastic boots and modern shaped skis are highly recommended. For randonee skiers, either modern randonee gear or standard alpine equipment will work fine -- The classes focus on downhill skiing skill development.
Rentals are available from several local shops. Alpine gear may be rented from the Summit.
Pricing this season is $160 for all six lessons
