Telemark Skiing Sessions at Chill Factore

Club Meets take place at Chill Factore during the Saturday 9-10.30am slot for Telemark skiing on the Main slope.

These generally occur every 2 weeks and cost £17.50 (concessions £14.00) for 1½ hours (or use your weekly or monthly pass). Pre‑booking online* with Chill Factore is recommended to avoid queues at reception.

SnowSport England and BASI Telemark coaches will be available on the booked dates for coaching and support on the main slope.

Introduction to Telemark sessions are also run ‐ please email telemark@mccsc.org.uk before coming. Participants must have Alpine ski experience and be able to make turns and control speed from the top of the main slope.

Catch up afterwards with friends over a hot chocolate or breakfast in Wetherspoon’s Castle in the Air situated at the front of Chill Factore. Usually at table 1 in the far left corner by the fireplace.

HIRE EQUIPMENT is inclusive of entry cost at Chill Factore.
The range of Telemark rental is limited, so we are unable to guarantee having the correct size. Please bring your own Telemark kit if you have it.

There are a few New Telemark Norm Scarpa boots and Head Rev 78 skis fitted with Rottefella NTN releasable, semi step-in bindings. There are also a few older Telemark Norm 75mm Crispi boots and Salomon skis, fitted with 7TM bindings.

Allow 15-30 minutes for fitting.

Note Cross country skiers are no longer permitted on the Beginners slope.
