Welcome to the Telemark Division

Jeff Desbeker in India 2010, the man that bought telemark to NZEstablished as a facility for the standardisation of Telemark instruction in New Zealand, the Telemark Division of NZSIA was inaugurated in 1985.

Over the last decade or so the sport of Telemark skiing has made huge technical developments with its equipment; no more leather boots and skinny skis. Telemark is now a mainstream recreational winter sport with fat skis and hard plastic boots, but still with the mobility and freedom of movement that only those that tele will fully understand.

Although the NZSIA Telemark courses are mostly aimed at certifying instructors, many of the participants at Level One are there to develop their own personal skiing primarily.
