Message from the President


It's ski season! More so for the lucky folks out in the Rockies and Sierra's but its coming (back) for us Easterners too. We are very excited to be bringing you a great slate of races this season. We have 3 western races and 5 eastern races scheduled in addition to the eastern training camp at Mt. Snow on December 19th and 20th. We are still working on a training camp out in Colorado and will let everyone know as we have additional information.

As we continue to work towards growing the sport of telemark skiing and telemark racing in particular, we are especially appreciative of the sponsors, resorts, and volunteers who make it all possible. We are excited to welcome back Big Sky Brewing, Saucer Wax, Global Rescue, and Scarpa as Gold Level sponsors and to express our gratitude to Karbon Sports and 22 Designs for joining the team as Gold and Silver level sponsors, respectively. We are also happy to announce that POC and Telemarkdown have joined as sponsors of USTSA as well.

We are always welcoming new members and racers to our ranks and hope that you can make it out to join us this year. There is nothing quite like the thrill, challenge, camaraderie, and exhilaration of combining gates, a nordic jump, a banked turn, and a skate section into one fantastic event. We hope to see you out there on the slopes!

Garrett Long - USTSA President
